PP's are the way to. you won't get to many miles out of them, but if you are going to ride hard. then go with them.

The Pirelli Corsas are a great street/track bike.

PPs are awsome no doubt. I haven't tried a set of 2CTs on the street yet, for fear that the track oriented carcass might provide for less bump absorption (rougher ride on street than regular PPs).

If you have an 06, it calls for a 190/55 rear tire(190/50 will slow the steering). So far, I've seen Continental Sport Attack, Pilot Power 2CT, and Dunlop Q's with those sizes.

The dunflops are absolutely aweful in cooler weather. I have ridden the Pilot Power and the cooler temps and they do very well(they are not going to make the standard PP in 190/55). I will probably try the 2CT's this year, but there is a chance I will try the Conti's first.
