    I .org orgionally switched to avoid any issues with the California super bike school. But the school ismt a track day & in hindsight I didnít need to spend $500. After installation.
    120/70 and 190/55. I think 17.
    Thanks for the offer, but my vfr takes 120/70 front and 180/55 rear. I donít know if there would be spare room to squeeze another 10mm on the back.

    i was only getting around 5500 miles on the pr3's. ive seen people say the cbr 954 is pretty rough on rear tires, but i dunno.

    i get around 3-3500 on the regular q3 rear. right at 3500 with the last one.

    with the rebate its just hard to beat the cost to wear ratio, even vs a tire like the pilot road series that are suppose to give you all these miles, n im sure they do if youre not out pushing the bike every ride.

    but i felt like the money kinda just came out in the wash between those two, but the q3 had some real performance advantages. both had pretty neutral profiles that were similar, but the q3 gave me a noticeable boost in confidence at lean angles and a sharper feedback feel.

    I was going to try the Q4ís this year & @Slimer mentioned to me that if I wasnít running tire warmers that they would be slippery until they warmed up.
    I was impressed with my Q3ís this year. My last track day I abused them trying to be faster & they held up their end of the bargain.

    The Q3s are more than enough tire up even into advanced.

    The Q4 is maybe a 1500 mile street tire.
