Tires like the Michelin Pilot Power Race are more suited for track (thats what most other riders are running) and will perform a lot better but the 2CT's last longer and are a good balance for track and road use. You also get pure race tires like the Dunlop D208GP's that Dilip Rogger uses
Good choice of tires. Pilot Power, and Pilot Road are both awesome. I got close to 9000 miles on my first set, and the new ones I got are also Pilot Powers. They give you best of both worlds. The one made for track only dont even last 2000 miles.

Whoa awesome write up I could actually feel every moment you spent on the track.

Wow you got 16 seconds faster from your initial lap, nice.

How come the animals get on track? is the boundary only fenced & not walled?

Fantastic review there Killer. Please please do let us know when you guys hit the track next time. Would love to be a part of the action at least as a spectator.

Thats almost 200k's. i can imagine how quick that is. Everything would be blurred all around (almost). I wonder how many liters of adrenalin was pumped that day.

@Technocrat: little animals get through man, its just in the mornings when everythings quiet. Once the bikes and cars come out they scamper away.
