I was able to find a gap in rain showers yesterday, so I took the bike to a mostly deserted parking lot for some "laps" for about 15 minutes. It was only 48 degrees out, so I wasn't able to get a lot of heat into them.
I definitely have more rear tire than before. I've had no problem, in recent years anyway, whittling down my chicken strips to virtually nothing on Dunlop Q2s and Q3s, but didn't manage to do that yet on this tire...still an inch or so left to go. Along with the cooler temperature, I probably just didn't have the confidence on them yet, but also I think that there's a lot more tire at lean when compared to the Q3. Well, another contributing factor is possibly not being quite as comfortable on the 16 R1 as compared to the 09 R1. Without them mounted up on the 09, I guess that I can't be sure about anything yet. I need more miles and warmer weather!
