Diablo Rosso Corsa?

Hi There,

The metzler M3s are at their end... wondering if anyone has tried the new Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa's as yet?

Cheers, Simon

Can't comment, but since you will get a bunch of recommendations for the Michelins - here they are on special:

Happy new year to both of you... Ride yesterday, got a red neck from the sun :-) Might go for another tomorrow. Where did you go?

I headed north and around 16 and back again - basically up to Wellsford, very little traffic...roads a bit rough in places though and then back again. You?

Down to Bombay, over to Kawakawa Bay and back via Whitford. VERY good roads, a few bikes and a beer on the beach at half time.

Nice - I think you told me about this route....this is your regular semi-east coast ride route isn't it?

Never seen those before (we get things late here).

Is this something that shows up between the Corsa III and Supercorsa Pro?

From what I gathered, the first Rosso was a bit below the Corsa III in terms of grip, etc. This seems like the other side.... eh?

Yup, its a fairly regular run. Got a bit of everything and the roads are reasonably quiet. Best of all there is a pub + cafe + Fish and Chip shop half way on the coast for a break and cold drink.
