Re: Best back tyre for fast road use on 929RRY

Any of the supersport ( Dunlop 208, Pirelli Diablo Corsa, Michelin Pilot Race, Metzeler M3, Bridgestone 0014, etc.) tires will be more than sticky enough for you-- when it's warm out. You should listen to the riders in your area and take their recommendations more seriously.

Also, they don't last very long.
