better grip and lighter for less rotating mass.

On a race tire discussion the michelin rep told me last year the power one was going out of production and they had an even lighter tire to replace it with. I quite liked the one day i spent on the power ones, they let me get away with probably more then i deserve. I actually love the bridgestone tires too but the 250 slicks aren't exactly right for an SV, and in high speed knee down corners the 003RS didn't give me quite the confidence i was looking for.

"Then we have “anyways,” a colloquial corruption of “anyway.” It’s universally considered nonstandard and should be avoided altogether. It might help to remember that “anyway” is an adverb, and adverbs can’t be plural. "
