I got a call from a friend last night, he has had a set of pilot pure for a few weeks now and says they are the best tyre he has had. He is even happy with the wear rate so far. I am 95% sure I will get a set next time I need tyres.

Went for a 100 mile ride with the new Power Pures today.....scuffed them in a bit for about 25 miles Friday night, and had a short rain ride then as well (not on purpose). Felt good then, and rain grip was confidence inspiring...

Today I got to push a little more. Handling is superb with light feeling when tipping into a turn or picking up to flick the other way. Edge grip was very stable and secure....

Will have to get up into the mountains for a more in depth trial, but I am very pleased with my decision at this point.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

I've put about 300 miles on mine already and they are amazing! I opted for the 190/55 and the turn in improved more than what I expected. In addition, once in the corner the bike holds trajectory better than with the Pirellis; I assume this is due to what is proving to be quite a sticky compound.

Turns out that the pures are back ordered for 30 days in Cali, so I am slapping on Bridgestone's 003's RS tomorrow instead..any feedback on these hoops?

The Road 2's are just fine for 95% of us. I have a couple of buddies who run them on their BMW sport tourers (Boxer Cup Rep and K1200S) and they rail around the corners at a clip serious enough to embarrass most guys on dedicated sport bikes. They have a different profile, and therefore have a little different feel, but there's not a grip issue with those tires.
