tire thread... well while we're all here, can someone with more experience on performance tires comment on what they think of the feel that the dragon supercorsas give?

Don't expect to get a huge life out of them. My rear is shagged. It's done 2 track days and about 2500 road kms.

For a good lasting grippy tyre my preference was the Michelin. For an insanely grippy tyre (if you dont mind replacing them often) I looooooooove the Dunlops.

Got a pair of Q2's wiating for me, getting fitted this weekend.
I'd been runnning GPRa11s also - found them to be very grippy from the offset, moderate wear until you get them to halfway (then the rear just disappears) and reasonable in the wet. Cheap enough too, but changing tires with low mileages and having fronts with half tread remaining sitting around sucks.

Diablo SC SPs I thought were pretty good, horrid in the wet but I got good wear out of them, Dunlop Qualifier RRs good at the track but dangerous on the road with squirrely rears until warm enough but again pretty good wear. Still want to try Q2s but Diablo Rosso Corsa IIs are going on next.

Would be great to find a tyre that I just like, but until then I guess the search continues.

Mostly road and hills riding with the odd track day or two thrown in per tire.

I just logged on the Pirelli Motorcycle Tires' website to see what tire is recommended by them.. When I filtered my search my motorcycle manufacturer; According the Pirelli, NO recommendations are available. for Triumph, WTF? Lol Is this a conspiracy against Triumph by the Italians' and Ducati ?

If you are street only, Pirelli Angels. That's what I'd recommend.

If you need anything with more grip on the street, you're riding way too fast. Angels will still get you knee-down, but will last 7-8k miles.

Yes they are! Where are you guys sourcing these. I thought that the Alpha 11s were no longer made now.

I had a set on my old 09 R1 and loved them. Prior to that pair I was a little anti Dunlop. These changed my mind. Did 2 track days on these plus a few klms and sold the bike with these still on the rims.

I currently am running the Dunlop Sportsmarts and I really like them. Not sure how they will wear, but so far so good. I recommend them as a great all rounder. Probably the only negative is that they aren't as V shaped as the OEM Pirellis, but on a bike that turns as quick as the Daytona I don't see this as too much of an issue.

LeeHam, I got these fitted at your local Kawasaki dealer ( Maroochy) just before doing my last track day at Lakeside back in May. They had them for a very reasonable price.

Don't blame a crash on the tires haha

I've had good luck with michelin 2CT and pirelli diablo. Michelin seems to be better all around but pirelli's have insane grip once hot for a street tire

Pirelli Diablo

I absolutely love the Pirelli Diablo Rossa Corsa. Rossa II if your looking for a bit more mileage and wet traction. As far as any cold weather traction... Pirelli claims they become inoperative under 40 degrees (F), which is more or less the standard for "high performance" rubber. Never the less, I'm about to order another pair of the Rossa Corsas after 3.5K (great traction, shit lifespan). Amazing shoes. Cheers.
