Hi Lou "super speed guys"? I know a red head in your area that would take you to task on that coment! What BT tires do you refer to? I have 2.75-18 front and 3.5 rear rims destine fro the TT1 and would like some more track oriented radial rubber. Pantah-goodie will remind you that TTs are not "street" bikes. Those Dunlops from Japan so far are the only "fit". Most mortal 1/2 speed "guys" like us need all the grip we can get!

Hello Guys, I will inform me in next week to buy the tires.

I'm very close to the dealer, I am close to Pisa.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
you know this tire?

130/70/ZR 16 M/C (61W) SPORTMAX QUALIFIER

The only time I brought my Ducati Moretti on track, I had an electrical problem, and in two days of practice, I could only do 4 laps ........ I have made account that the tire Qualifier, is very tender, because I ate a tire for my strong anger!

I only did 4 laps, but in those 4 laps I felt very comfortable the bike when cornering.

You have never tried it?

Ciao a tutti!!!

Hello Carlo You eat tires when you are angry?! :evil: I think you say fast ride and soft tire=quick wear? The sportmax tires that I wish to know more about are from Japan only. I think they are race tires. My Japanese is much worse than my Italian. We need translation!

Hey Mike, the big problem I thought was with the 16 inch front. Couldn't you go with the Avons with 18 inchers front and rear? They worked well on our TT racer. Lou

Hello Mike, but you did not know that I speak Japanese perfectly? :shock:

No kidding! I bought the tire Qualifier in Italy.

I believe that those who sold me the tire does not speak Japanese, or at least does not speak Japanese well as myself! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
CIAOOOOOOOOOO
