Why I use Dunlop Q3+'s

Down hill decreasing radius almost going to fast? Keep pushing the handle bar, lean some more, it's rock solid.

Nice! I love the Q3's on my ZX-10 until I went to the Michelin Power RS.....fantastic! So I am thinking instead of PR-4 on the Connie, why not the RS and screw it if they last 1500 or 2K miles! So far they are holding up very well but then the 10 at 426 lbs fully fueled is rather lithe. Gawd I hate these BT-021's the PO put on.

Nice battle scars!

I've kept a logbook since owning the C14. The average milage I get with the Q3's has been 5.5-6k rear and 7-7.5k front. I do have Ohlins front and rear with a carbon fiber front wheel so that has an effect. You can really push this bike and it just keeps answering with solid performance.
