I like the q-2's myself, short of a true dot track tire.

At the moment I have a set of budget Pirelli Diablo's from Cycle gear on the bike. They are wearing great, but take a long time to heat up, and it may sound a bit scary, but slip like the dickens out back. My first ride saw me close to full-lock putting a little power down at a modest lean angle. Yesterday I was riding on the street with a bunch of fast guys and was actually putting down darkies! This tire is fun but is getting too scary! I think they are old stock or something. (The front is working well, so far)

Don't go there. As soon as I can I am changing back to the q's. I have not been getting very good milage out of them however. I like running the 190/50 in the q's, the profile works better for me on this tire and may be why my wear is bad, about 2.100 miles max on these out back, but the fronts seem to last well into the 3's.

I say "stickie bunns for all"
