Snagged 'em and mounted 'em up - by "hand" Saturday. Never ran the brand before, but the price was good, and they were out of Michelin's..

The seem pretty decent so far...we'll see how they do in the twisties.

If you guys are talking about the Rosso's......you'll love them and wonder why you never tried them before.

I put a couple hundred miles on them in the fun stuff.

Are they sticky? Oh yeah, VERY!
My limits are less than the tires, and I am not sissy on hanging off.
We'll see what kind of miles I get out of them

I've got about 2000 miles on a set of Diablo's. My only complaint is that the back brake seems too easy to lock up.

I just picked up a set while on vacation down in Florida, brought them back as a second checked bag on the aircraft to Canada.

We dont get really good tire deals up here much....

Cheapest I can see locally is 399 installed...

I'm looking forward to trying them out, I wanted PR2's, but couldn't resist the Perelli's at that price.

I also picked up a set of boots, a jacket, and gloves at Cycle Gear and brought it back with me.

you guys get all the deals

Disconnect it and you won't have the problem.

4500 miles on the set.

Started losing air a week or 10 days ago on the rear. hunted for a nail, nope. replaced the valve core, nope. Replaced the entire stem, as the grommet looked old and OEM from 2005. NOPE.

Broke out the shop light and scanned every inch of the tire.

Found some weird scaling on the center, looks like it it is splits from the heat. side to side cracks. about 1/2" to 1" long, just on a 12-18" section.
about 3-4" apart started at the top and going until about 3 o'clock.

I do not have a camera good enough to get it on film.

Never seen that before, any Ideas?

I will say the mileage is impressive. If they give me another one under warranty, I should get 6500-7500 miles out of it, and I ride like an asshole



BTW, this looks like an orgy

been using the Diablos for years. Never had a problem with them in any weather. CG puts them on sale all the time. I just got 2 sets for $370 out the door at my CG.

Just curious, my tires are about done and I'm looking to replace, did you get a 180 or 190 rear?
