I will probably try the Q3's next. I had switched to the Q2's on my R6. I noticed that the rotation of the tire was wrong: the tread was channeling inwards rather than outwards. After a search, I found that was the correct way and was designed for braking stability. I figured "okay, im sure Dunlop knows about tires more than me" and mounted them as Dunlop had intended. I was impressed! I could hear the difference, it sounded as if the tires were scrubbing the pavement when I pulled the front brake and the front tire was loaded. No other tire has given me that impression.

Getting ready to take off my wheels. Received this delivery today and looks like a nice tool.

I can still lean way over on the road. They do make some buzz... They have much better grip than the scorpians off-road.

I still feel in my bones that the Strada is a street fighter at heart, but I'm warming up to making her a dirt queen one day...like when I'm really, really bored and have another bike or three in the stable.

She points and shoots so well that I bet it does well in the mild stuff. Please tell me the suspension is better in the dirt than on the street.
