Im in the market for new tires also. My friend just picked up the BT0016R tires and they are amazing. I might go with them also cuz I found a set on eBay for about $60 cheaper than the Corsa 3 and the PP 2ct

98% of Harleys ever made are still on the road. The other 2% made it home.

i just got my rosso's put on today, amazing tire. it compares to a corsa but it holds out more miles, its amazing. its got a bigger contact patch with the pavement, it just wants you to lean you dont even have to try it does it for you. best tire for your buck in my opinion

pinebox tail light, DIY fender eliminator, Yoshimura full race exhaust, k&n filter.

Yep on the 2ct's they might wear quicker but the feedback in grip is awesome.
