Tires - Again

Alright guys - I have looked everywhere else to get this information, cause i know what a stir this question always creates, but....

DUAL COMPOUND TIRES -

It's time again for tires. having gotten only about 3k miles out of the Pirelli Corse III's on the 919.

I have friends who have gone to the Bridgestone BT021 and report over 6k miles. I don't know, every time i leave Pirelli, i always come back.

I know we all ride different (i probably need to engine break less for the sake of tread life) but i want to know who's getting the most out of what tires.

Anyone have the Pirelli Rosso's yet?
how disappointed will i be going from Diablo's to Strata's?
Should i take the leap to the BT 021's?

Let the Posts begin!

I have 6,000 miles on my Conti Road Attacks and they still have about 50% tread left, have been outstanding tires.

you mentioned strada, so i will mention z6.... metzeler has their new version coming out also, so maybe can find them on the cheap(the old ones). I know I will be keeping an eye out. I have 1700 miles on mine, and about 1500 of that is highway commuting. barely even looking flat spot in the back, front perfectly round. I have a friend runs the strada on the bandit 1200 and gets 7k, he said he is near 6k on the z6's probably get 8 or 9k. but his is all curves, no interstate.

i never had a traction problem with the z6's, even have some laps on the dragon on these sets.

I have the Avon Storm ST's & love them. I haven't had any traction issues. Got about 6k on both. Front looks great, rear will have to go soon about 1k or so.
