Swapped the piece of **** OEM Dunlop tire for a fresh Battlax S21. I can't believe how big of a difference it made - the bike dips into corners much easier, stays planted all the way through, and has so much more grip that I'm already leaning further even though it's not even broken in yet.

Guess that's partly due to the fact that I had little to no tread left on the Dunlop, but even straight from the factory it was much more sluggish than now.

Anyway, today is a great day.

Don't expect to get very many miles from the Battlax. I got about 5k out of the last one I used. I just put some Michelin Pilot Road 5's on my bike They handle great and I'm expecting some decent (8-10k) out of them.
