    Michelin Power RS

    I know we have a few people riding on Power RS' now. Anybody care to review them? I'm interested to hear how they compare to the PP3's. I'm not in the market currently but I'm curious about real life experience with them.

    They held up very well, providing great grip for me on Saturday and Sunday. Nobody I know runs the Metzeler M7s, though I ran those last season and the Michelin RS provided just as much confidence as I had with those. I'm certainly interested to hear Marty's feedback after Putnam.

    I just put a set on the S1000RR, only have about 300 miles on them so far. They have been good so far, turn in is smooth, warm up seems to be quick, and once they were scrubbed in there has been no sliding that I have felt or seen on the TC. Although TC did let me know of a small crossed up wheelie I pulled while exiting a corner while still leaned over.

    The biggest complement I can pay them so far is that I haven't thought about them while riding.

    I too will be riding Putnam on the 27th on them.
    I think I have a bit of a problem.....

    @donkey ; do you have the link to what you read about optimal tire pressure for the street and track?

    Apparently I was running a bit off from recommended pressures; too low in the front and too high on the rear.
