Ive got them on both my bikes a 12r and a 6RR and my son has them on his 6R. Best tires Ive ever had as far as handling and holding a line. Mileage is unknown at this point but if they last 2K Iam happy.

Pilot Power 2CT's are the $hit..... I personally dont like BT###'s but some in here and other forums swear by them, especially the 16's. I ride like a fool though and the 2ct's hold better, I dont care what any one says. Pirelli's squel when you slide the rear though and it sounds cool, they stick good too......

Folded piece of sheet metal...stock BT-015 with 800 miles. LongStoryLong Monday I was YouTubing sportbike how-to's and learned I have been riding 'crooked'. Tuesday I got my first feel (I think) of what leaning is REALLY about (head/shoulders albeit with a quivery knee) I was feeling pretty good, I was lea(r)ning some, just passed a StateTrooper and wasn't speeding and **POP**

Plug wouldnt hold, more slice than puncture. Is trying a patch on the inside crazy talk and/or acceptable suicidal behavior?

Both front stock Summer Contis (sticky) on my car picked up debris causing irreparable damage within 1K miles. Would a sport-touring tire be acceptable for novice rider learning leaning?

thats burns man.

Not sure plugging it is a good idea, esp if you ride anywhere above 100mph. Wouldnt want it spitting you off as it let go.
