Hmm, I'll have to look for this "Michelin man", I just ordered my 2CTs and should get them Friday.Right on Q. Took me a year to take off the the little Michelin man. If you run 2cts you know what I mean. It was a happy day. A local road by my work has 42 bends in 9 miles, oh that's fun! It's like a mini Dragon.
I think it kind of depends on the local roads, not just skill. I have some twisty stuff close by, but not a whole lot, so there isn't much variety...and honestly, it just wouldn't be safe to really push it too hard on some of them just due to traffic and/or how slick the pavement is in certain places. How I would love to live close to the Tail of the Dragon or something similar...You know whats bad....I've been so worried bout speeding here latly Mine are almost coming back,but you can hardly tell. As far as the fronts,I've seen one bike(yes it was an 07 6r ) and his front and backs worn hard core shredded. I asked him what track he rode on but he said he only rode on the street
