I have run the regular Pilot Powers for the last few years. Novice to Mid I pace, no issues. Good wear, temp rarely a concern, and enough confidence to run in light rain. My last day at Barber was not so fun because of rain that lasted all day. I was running Dunlop Q2's on my CBR 1000 and was wishing I had a set of rains, or at least the Pilot Powers that clear water better because they are grooved to the edge. All that being said, I may go with the Q2 for my next set on the 51. I really liked them in the dry at Tally. I don't think you can go wrong with the Pilot Powers. I have had good service from them. Looking to try a 190/55 rear next time in whatever tire I buy.
