    The 3's took a beating on a hot day, did much better when the temps came down. This was on the Tiger.

    It's been a long time since I went out to the track......... back then there was no such thing as dual compound treads and all the options we have now. We would use a different set of wheels with different rubber spooned on to each set; one set for the track and one for the road. It would seem that somewhere along the line there has to be too much of a compromise between what a track day tire can do and what a street tire should do. If it were me, I would rather have the choice of running a great street tire and then being able to switch out to great track tire. I'm still not sold on the notion of a do-it-all tire.

    That's what I ended up doing. I bought another set of wheels and put some slicks on it. Best option I think.

    Ive run my PR4s on the track and have ridden them really hard on the street numerous times. Ive never had any issues with the tires getting greasy or losing traction.

    I still like the bt003's. (still available but replaced by the rs10). On the street they lack in the mileage department obviously. but when I had the stock metzler on the rear if it was wet I could slip the clutch for a wheelie and when I let it out I could get the rear to spin no problem. First time I tried with the bridgestone I was surprised that it lifted the front wheel in the wet. Also I've done a couple wet sessions on track with these with no problems.

    As far as track goes I've ran them from when I first started trackdays (big and small bikes) and used them in most of my races so far (sv650). For a performance track/street tire I don't think you can get a better deal.

    my pr3 looked much better than indytigers after my track day...... I was running 28 psi rear, temp was 50-70 outside.

    I'm going to get a set of Q3's or S20 Evo's for my next track outing.
    Money can't buy happiness. But it can buy a motorcycle. And you can't be sad on a motorcycle.

    Thanks for the input on this. You make a good point about how much will I use them on the track. I'm not sure I can answer that yet until I see how the bike performs as a track day bike.
    IMO leave the 3's on the bike and have fun.
    This is a 3 after 3 track day's on one of the most aggressive tracks in the mid west. Putnam tears tires up.
    OH, have track take off's pilot powers on the front. Nice combo.

    I'm gonna vote for the bt003. They are an awesome trackday tire and get about 3-4k on the rear for hard street riding. I never thought they would be good in the wet but when they still have decent amount of tread left they still have excellent center of tire grip in the wet (I'm a ***** rider in the wet so I never really leaned too hard in the wet with them)
    I love this the casino norge anytime
