I'd say there's a good chance someone may suggest pilot powers, also dude you may take some message board abuse on this one.

BT-014's are a great street tire. Good grip and long lasting I can get 4000 at 35psi rear and twice that out of the front at 32psi. It's okay for the track. There are better track tires out there but for the street BT-014's rawk!

It's not the bike, it's the rider.
