    Looks like fun. I'd love to do a track day but nearest track is 250 miles. Those Dunlop Q3+ are probably my next set of tires.

    I called & got a different answer this time. This time they said $180 & they don't check the valves. I guess it depends on who I speak to. I'll hold them to that when I bring it in Tuesday.

    If I rode the MT-09 & NC700X to work today I'd get there in the same time. 20 years ago I would get there in half the time on the MT-09. Comes down to riding style.

    2 more I'm reading about, Metzeler M7 RR & Bridgestone S22. These are all dual compound tires. Harder in the middle, softer on the sides. Grip + decent mileage without squaring off.
