DevilDog,
I went with the Metzler Rennsports. Took them to a track day and they are still doing really well. Not sure what type of riding your doing out there in the desert but the Metzlers are good and sticky. Tires are like bikes... You get what you pay for.

I say don't do it get the dunlop,or bridgestone or Pilot sports but stay away from that tire on your busa or you will find yourself in the weeds real soon...........................

I've got a shinko on the rear and so far it works great. I use it with my 8 inch extended arm. It will pull the front of the ground with ease. :whip:

just slapped a metzler on her today got the usual 10% discount and she seems great only around 30 miles on it but i can lean it over alot farther than the dunlop almost to the edge......i hated the bridgestone.....dunlop stuck nice but didnt hold up for poop.......so here goes a metzler.......

The Shinko works better for drag racing, not corners. So it makes a difference on what you are going to do!
