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.

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.
