Of Maxxis Supermaxx...

The same could arguably be said of something like a Pilot Road 3. Having used them for six days now, I'd say they're a road tyre that works on the track to a point. In hindsight, if I'd known I'd be using them for more than one day, I'd have spent a bit more for something more suitable.

I might be punting out my part-worn 120/70 and 190/50 in the near future. About 3mm of tread left across the tyre at each end.

I'm absolutely gagging to get out on the track again. Wish I could afford a Euro Trackday in March or something like that. Some good deals out there if you have the cash.

me too, was thinking of last min mallory next weekend but not in this cold'ness. i dont think i could concentrate

i'm still unsure about what tyres to get for the new season, I'm still tempted with maxxis as i put some on the sv beginning of November and thought they're really good, but the the sv has a nats fart of power so unsure of that they'd be like on the ace. Either them or coarsa's but for the price of scrubs for them your talking nearly the price of a new set of maxxis

I've done seven days with Maxxis hoops on my gixer and the only problem I've ever really had with them was getting the power down at corner exit. And that's with me being really ginger on the throttle because I know they have a tendency to step out.

I'm also itching to get out and play, to the point that I have a list of links handy just waiting for me to get drunk enough one night to book a few up:

Same here. I can't get close to out-riding these. Surprised me how low psi you should run at. I think one hot day I was advised by the Tyre guy there to run at 27 f/ 25r.
