Anyone tried these yet? feedback? thinking of trying them out...
Cool review, but what's goin' on here, bro?the GT rear currently on my bike is the first one i've tried...previously, i've used the rear ST for touring ever since they discontinued the Strada...IMO, the GT is better than either of the others due to lasting longer...grip, traction, and wet weather behavior all seem as good or better...it definitely takes a bit longer to heat up than a Corsa III/Diablo Rosso Corsa which is why i've always run the Corsa III and now Diablo Rosso Corsa on the front no matter where/how i'm riding...here is a pic of the rear after just over a 5000 mile trip on it...i'm definitely impressed so far
Man, I'm still jealous of that trip. Glad we got to see you guys in the middle of it!5000 miles of rain; stop and go through CT, NY, NJ, etc; rain; Florida; rain; loaded down with gear; rain...eh, no excuses, i'm just a loser
i've never had any issue with running them mixed...i get enough mileage out of the stickier front even when touring for it to be worth it for my peace of mind...i ran a Strada on the front one time and did not like it at all, it just didn't handle like i was used to with the Corsa III...it may all be in my mind but i've been running this set-up since '06 (approximately 75,000 miles) and i trust it and that makes it worth it to meMan, I'm still jealous of that trip. Glad we got to see you guys in the middle of it!
On the topic of tires... I've never run a mixed set like you do. Any noticeable issues from doing that? I'm not so much worried about the rear end, but having the front slip a few times when I tried Pilot Road 2's was just not acceptable.
Safe travels to you, sir! How many miles are on your current set?i think you'll like them...i'm headed to MS on this same set tomorrow, here's hoping they have as many miles left in them as i think they do
No, but I really wanted to try them. I'm only getting something like 1500 miles on a set of Q2's, so I thought I'd try something different. They are great tires, but I've slowed down a lot and don't think I need them anymore.No Q3's ???
I understand. Me slowing down on the street makes less need for the super sticky tires...
