Diablo, Diablo, or Diablo, don`t go near the std Pilot, They are fine untill 1/2 worn then they will have you off, Too many have fell off with them, I had two very near misses, both when the tyre`s were cold ish, but I was`nt doing anything spectacular either.

As an opposing opinion, I've never had any problems with Michelin Pilots, Hot, cold, wet or dry.

Wouldn't bother with them now though, as they have been replaced with the Pilot Power, which I can thoroughly recommend. Quite possibly the best wet weather tyre I've ever used, and sticky as s**t in the dry. Fitted as standard to the F4 1000, they also come in 65 fronts.

As a year round, all weather, road tyre I've found BT010's are as good as I've come accross.

Craig, I suspect it may only be you and me who list 'wet weather' handling amongst our tyre requirements!

Diablo/ supercorsa/ you got to love the Pirelli tires. Never had any problems with the Dragon EVO but they have discontinued that modle. I had some problems with Pilot Sports after about 2500 miles.
