    LOVE my PR2's. Had Metzelers prior to this, and they were fine. But the Pilot Road's are superior IMO. I have about 2500 miles on them, and no squaring. I spend a lot of time in the canyons, though....

    The 4-cylinder GT's are extraordinary machines.

    I thought it was tires. I have a reasonable fresh set of PR2's on the bike, and thought maybe I had already worn them too much. But they look great.
