I'd love to get D211GPs or R10 but can't quite do that. What are you guys using? I'm leaning towars Dunlop Q2 or maybe BT S20. I need a DOT tire, will use it on the street afterwards.

I like the Pilot Power but the Q2 is definitely a better tire for the money. Pure is ok, but not much feedback. I'd like the power one race V up front and regular in the rear if I could afford them. Which ones do you run?

Yeah, I like the BT016 ok, but the BT003 has more grip. Front just lacks a bit of feel. I would love to try the Bridgestone R10.. it's supposed to be really great. Just can't swing 400 for a set. 280 for the Q2s isn't bad. Especially considering I'm not competing. The Michelin race tires are sweet.

Somwhere in the southeast, but we really haven't decided for certain. VIR or Barber are options, but possibly Road Atlanta or Roebling Road. Might try to get in on a Ducati trackday with my suspension guy. Depends on what kind of deal we can get.

My buddy with an RSV4 loves Road Atlanta, he's racing there in June with WERA on the Ape. He's wanting us to go there. Roebling Road is tempting because I have a buddy there (Poolboy), who might get in on it too. And I have friends I can stay with. You ever been there? I understand you can do a whole weekend for 250.

I'd love to get another set of those, but they are just too expensive for me. The rear costs more than a set of Q2s. I did really enjoy them the last time I used them, the contact patch in the rear really lets you put down power.

Dunlop slick FTW,check Race Tire Services they have track day special going on for 211GPA's in 120/190 for $339.00! It is 50 bucks more but you get WAY better tire than Pilot Power or Q2!
That is a good price. I wonder how good the medium rear will do on the street after track.

My only concern with that tire is grip levels v the Q2. The compound is very similar to the 016, with it having a wider high mileage compound in the center on the rear, more narrow in the front. I've found the limits of the 016 as seen in that video I posted, but the Q2 is supposed to be good for a few more seconds in terms of lap times. Even over the BT003 which is Bridgestone's step up tire.
