I haven't tried the Dunlops so I can't comment on those.

I ran Bridgestone BT003 (race, not street compound) for most of the season. I was happy with them for the most part, especially the price. I ran the R10's one weekend because the tire vendor was out of the 003's and they were even nicer yet but I didn't get as good of wear out of them.

The last 2 rounds of the year though the Bridgestone vendor couldn't make it to the track due to some kind of mechanical issues with his truck. I ran Pirelli SC1's and I LOVED them compared to either of the 'Stones but especially the BT003. The one track I run is super bumpy and they soaked up the bumps sooo much better. The rear just felt planted instead of bouncing around. I had been running consistent mid 1:14's at this track and the last weekend of the year I dropped to a personal best of 1:13.3 on the Pirellis.

The front rain tire is mounted to an 06 wheel in excellent shape. I'd rather not sell it, for it is my spare front wheel, but maybe i can work something out.

The rear rain is not mounted at the moment.


I had Perrelis as well, and preferred the BT-010. Great feed back, and the rear last FOREVER. All a matter of preference.

I actually just read a review on the BT-010's and they had only good things to say about them. They also said that the rear last forever too haha! Thanks for the info.


Also, just got some pic's from Side Line Photography, phenomenal job! Highly recommend checking them out if there at a track day anybody is at.

Here's one pic from it. Gimme some tips! I know my knee should be closer to my arm.. at least when I can lean more. Thanks ! And note that it was a wet track and was scattered showers throughout the day!

Well got to ride the 675R for the first time this past weekend at Little Talladega GP with Apex Mfg. and STT. Awesome people!

This bike is amazing.. goes to full lean without even really trying haha! I was running 1:01's to 1:04's by Sunday with the new bike. I also was on a pair of Michelin Slicks, and they were amazing too. Coming from a basically stock S1000RR, this thing you can charge into the corners with so much more speed and at the same time so much more smoothly!

Here's a pic of me at Tally on Sunday during a A session:



I cannot wait to race this beast next year!
