    sounds good man!
    ...Also, about my D 207 comment... even my cuz noticed that my riding style had changed since i got more use to the bike. I guess i wasnt ridding into and out of the corners as hard as i was in the beginning, so the sidewalls werent being used at all. They probably arent that all bad of a tire, I just noticed a lot better wear with the BTO 10's.
    But as far as your horse power comment from the last few posts go...she's got a little more power then stock, and i do tend to crank on all the straights i can find! After all, what is a bike for right???

    I am a huge fan of the Sportec M1's for the street. I used them on my Mille. I did a couple of track days and a bunch of street miles. No complaints.

    Check out www.motorcycletireplanet.com

    They have 208zr's for $76 front and $98 rear with $21 shipping. Total is $196 to your door for 120/180. Damn good prices.

    Other manufacturers can go shit in their hats......... I'd never buy another tire at those prices.

    Hypothetically, what if other tires offered the same or better grip and feedback in all conditions, cost $30 more per set but lasted 50% longer?

    That's the situation I was in when choosing between D207s and BT010s. I thought the BT010s actually felt and gripped better, especially in bumpy corners where the D207s felt rather skittish. The BT010s cost less per mile.

    That said, I have no experience with D208ZRs so I cannot say how they feel. I may give them a try.

    Imagine a world with no hypothetical situations...

    I'll say this about Sportecs.

    I ran one new set at a track day with decent results - great grip, decent wear, didn't let go as abruptly as the Pilot Sports I had run before. The next set I had spooned on showed this funky wear on the rear after only a short while into their first ride. I tried to get it replaced under warranty but the Metz rep wasn't having it - said it was not uncommon and was only cosmetic. Well, it didn't FEEL cosmetic - the edge of the tire was like foam rubber, and the bike handled like shit when heeled over. That was my last set of Metzelers.
