Dunlop Q3 finally released.

This will definitely be my next street/track tire. http://www.motorcycle.com/products/dunl ... 91635.html
And where might a fellow like me find such a glorious spatula?

I've got a Q3 rear on my SMT now. I only have about 1000 miles on it so far. Good tire. A bit better hot grip than the Q2 I think. Haven't pushed it in the rain but it does seem a touch better than the Q2's in that department (which isn't saying a lot). I don't think it will last long, it's showing lots of wear already. As a friend would put it "These tires are here for a good time, not a long time." Good street legal track day tire though!

Bought a set. Have no miles on them, yet, Dunlop has a $40 rebate (in the form of a credit/debit card) through August if you buy a set. It was too hard to resist over buying a set of PR3's.

Ok, replaced the Q3 (rear only -- plenty left on the front).

3177 miles from the original tire.
3770 from the Q3. I might have gotten more from it, but I think I have the pressure a bit high. And sadly, too many miles going straight.

Not wearing it down for the absolute mileage of mjskier (what, there's at least one more ply left). :mrgreen:

Replaced the front tire last week.
I was dodging thunderstorms and thought, why not get a new tire BEFORE you fall over in the rain.

Got 7550 out of the front. Wear was scalloped, slightly rough ride (versus the new PR4) and wear bars worn into a bit.
Good tire!
Wanted more rain capability, so went for the PR4. Especially as the rear PR4 worked as well (as far as I can tell) after 3800 miles as the Q3 rear.

Had a good time with these, but only got 3800km out of the rear (not miles) so they do burn up quick, but have had a great time pushing all the your guys on there 1000's up our mountain run.. there a little shocked to see the SMT up there pushing hard.. But having a great time, just ordered another rear :D
