I'm sure they are great in warm all the time climates, where the roads are year round great, or for the track. But I won't be getting a second pair when I replace them.

as im also in missouri i have no issues with the roads but the one thing the super corsas do not due well is rocks. my power pilots on my old bike were way more stable in rocks.

you guys are all wrong, white, black and red (on the same bike) is the fastest color

i know the D isnt comfortable but i just love the looks. i think the OP is in the same boat. I say get the D and add tank pads and heli bars. Ill also say that the corsa windscreen helps a TON! i put my stock windscreen on last week and couldnt believe how much air was hitting me in the chest!

who cares about age, it is just number!

i would agree 110%. I had the SCs and now the CPs. They are great when it is 100 degrees, sunny and smooth roads. Anything else, they suck. i switched from the SCs to bridgestone bt016 this winter and could instantly tell a difference in the cold. i think a BT016 style tire is much better for a less experienced rider like myself because it is good at almost every condition, while not being great at any condition. whereas a track tire like the CPs are only great in one condition.
