I didn't like the 002's on the street. Great turn-in, sharp and accurate steering. But the stiff casing wouldn't allow the tires to flex enough. Most of the roads around here are bumpy and cracked. The 002's wouldn't really knock the bike off line, but didn't inspire confidence either. Your comment about the Q2's going off and scaring you is an example why I like my Pirelli's.
Michelins and "street" Metzlers are good tires, but when they are done, whoa! - look out. The Pirelli's give tons more warning, but def not a mileage tire 1200-1500 max canyon miles.
