This is kick-ass info, guys, thanks!! I was B-group (sort of middle of the pack in the B group) fast before my long break from riding, so I'm hoping the chops will come back fairly readily (without pushing myself outside of my safe limits of course). That said, with the info gathered here, I should look for a DOT race tire.
The overheating factor is a concern because Hockenheim is mostly a high-speed, sweeping track, but that's really where the concern stops, as previously mentioned, I honestly dont think I'll be outriding the grip of any decent tire as long as it doesnt get greasy.
As one more bit of detail, if I may ask, in reference to the tires yall have recommended here, can anyone give details on the tire profile and the related steering behavior? Also as mentioned above, I really enjoyed the circular profile of the CorsaIII, it didn't feel like the bike was tipping over into the corners, rather it gave me a lot of finesse with my lean angle.
Thanks again, guys, this forum is great
