Yes the SC Pro. I had Joe at Racer Supply(pirelli tire vendor) and he got me my pressures and we checked before going out and coming in. We set cold at around 27 front and 26 rear and hot temps were around 31.5-32 front and 30.5-31 rear. They were awesome and I like the profile of there 190/55 better than the Michelin 190/55 at least on a liter bike with all the power and such.
I ran a green front and rear for the 25 minute race and those are the "soft" compounds which would be like Michelins medium and then for the 2 other non-rain races ran a green(soft) rear and a supersoft(blue) front. The profiles are should I say less agressive then the new michelins and are not as triangular in shape. I noticed with the michelins that they turned in great but only with the loss of traction later on as they slid all over the place. The profile on the pirellis is a little more flat but turn in is no problem at all. Very stable and didnt slide as much and I have no complaints so far. As far as the front. The soft(green) front was amazing and the supersoft(blue) front as you could imagine was even better. Never felt like I was going to tuck the front and it stayed planted well.
Hope that helps.

Cool man, I may be coming back in October. South Haven is a nice town for sure and the Thirsty Perch is a great place to eat i must say.

Yeah, South Haven is very popular in the summer because most of the people there own a summer home. Once winter hits, the place is a ghost town. The town population is like 10-12 thousand, but summer bumps the population up to 20-22 thousand residents.
