Just to close this thread out fully......
Track day one went as described above. Excellent tires, excellent grip.
Track day two was a partial day with only about 30 miles of use. Much the same as day one also included in the initial description.
Track day three was a partial day, but not because I didn't want to ride. The tires went until mid morning before the rear went away at the shoulders (OK....the right shoulder, as the track I ride most often has a predominance of right handers) and began sliding like mad. I continued to ride the remainder of the morning just to get a refresher on what it feels like to ride COMPLETELY shagged tires, but they were definitely gone. All told, still a good experience. They lasted a total of around 180 miles, the last 30 in a fully shagged state, so they were good for a solid 150 miles at my normal track day pace.
For comparison, a set of Bridgestone slicks last around 50 miles on the same bike at a race pace, stick twice as well, but cost twice as much. That makes the Power RSs a decent deal, I think.
I'll fit a set of Q3+ next to see how they do. They're in the back of the truck now.
