specific tire question

My question is about Q2's and Roadsmart tires.

Has anyone run Q2's AND Dunlop Roadsmart? I'm wondering what you think about comparison.
I love the handling of my Q2's and on my 4th set now. That's the problem: on my 4th set now. I'm thinking of trying a set of Roadsmart's. Or maybe just the rear tire? I fully understand you have to expect a little compromise, but as long as I can still rail thru the twisties, I'll be happy.
Does anyone feel like the Roadsmart can deliver as good cornering as a Q2 on the street? I don't track, so not an issue.

Dog , I had a set of the Roadsmarts on the 01' S-hawk(and to set the platform, all of my bikes have been setup to (ME /wieght/riding style), by GMDcomptrack) So the S-hawk handles as well as a stock RC, just doesn't carry the power..
So saying that- you will have a different outcome/ or opinion..
ON the S-hawk the only concerns I ever had, was in the rain- The tires didn't give a reassuring fell in the wet..(in comparison to M3s, Z6s, 016s,PwrPilots, CT2,)
Still got really good milage out of the set 3800 miles..(on S-hawk)

got the roadsmart and got now 3500 miles on it...and I think I get another 3000 miles...It handles great and also in the rain...I will stay with these...only the next time I will get the 180/55 ..because they don't have them in 190/55

Guy from our riding group, got almost 9000 miles with these tires.
