Being honest...I'm not very fast at all. When I was chasing the Kawi factory rider at Daytona, I realized there is an entire riding skill set out there that I have none of. I managed to keep up, but it was ugly and scary. That might change someday via a track school, we'll see.

Having said that, bike tires are a big part of my day to day survival as I commute through S. Florida traffic during peak traffic hours. The multi-compound idea makes sense to me, but I've heard complaints about the transition from the center compound to the side, and back again.

I suppose there will never be a "perfect" tire, so far the Continental Road Attacks seem to have the best grip to wear ratio for the Vee.

No, there is no perfect tire for everyone, but there are a lot of good choices these days.

I'm sure it can be a very cool job, but keep in mind that being required to ride a bike is quite a bit different than choosing to ride at your convenience.

Penisi is one cool dude. Smart, jovial and a stud on a bike, despite being at an age when the rest of us are slowing down.

I'm with Ken.

I'll probably never do a 'hot lap.'

But, it was an interesting article!
