Used to run Dunnies 208's, now got a set of Pirelli's Super Dragons. I have yet to put them on (winter season), but I hear they are the SHIT!
So I will let you know how they run in a couple of months.

when i got my 04 1k i was thinking that the handeling was okay, nothing spectacular. after about 1k miles on them i switched them out for a set of pilot powers and wow did the bike come alive. huge, huge difference over the stockers.

Pilot Powers, but I haven't ridden hard enough to tell much difference, though they do feel better than the stockers.

There's no problem that can't be solved with a suitable amount of high explosives.

Pilot powers I have now slightly edge the diablos I last had.
Diablo supercorsas are nice track hoops.

Don't know if they are out yet, but watch for the M3s. Based on the reviews and how good the old M1s were I'm sure they will be excellent street tires .

I think the M3s are out. I was advised last week that a dealer I know has them in stock
