A friend of mine uses them on his VFR, and loves them. Good grip and mileage. Not a sticky bun, but if you don't really push the limits, it's a good tire.

I put 'em on in the spring. Have about 6000 miles on them.

I really like them, a lot! They're so far ahead of the Dunlop 204s that came on the bike. Good grip cold or warm and they give me good confidence in the rain.

I haven't done a track day on them yet and I expect they will fall somewhat short there. But for the way I ride on public roads, I find they do just fine.

Tire life seems like it will meet my expectations. I would have liked Pilot Sports, but I can't see running a 3000 mi tire!

I'm doing a track day May 9th, and will probably need tires by then, FBF suggested Michelin pilot road, BUT he didn't know I was doing the track day.
But it is my first track day so I probably won't be pushing it??

I plan to do a track day on those tires this summer. Like you, I figure that for my first track day, those tires shouldn't be the limiting factor.

For track days they will get greasy about 10 minutes in if ridden hard. Just starts sliding a little mostly the rear. Last about 6000 miles on a rear though.

I had a set on my old Triumph Sprint and I loved 'em. They heated-up quickly, gripped very well in both the dry and the wet and they wore well. They were much better than the Bridgestone BT-054s that came with the bike.

Stock tires on my 996 and it is a good product ran about 3K miles. Not enough for tracks and takes a little longer to warm up. Good for street and canyon ride.
