I only have about 1200 miles on the set of tires, but man the amount of traction the tires have makes it feel like you are a professional rider

I love these tires. This is my 2nd set. They go for about 5k miles for me. But I ride pretty hard. Super stable and predictable in corners. At the same time, they are forgiving. There's no problem getting your knee on the ground with these tires.
I had a pair of pirelli sport touring tires on my yzf600r that I always thought I liked, but then I only got 4000 miles out of them, no wheelies or burn outs or any track days. So I went with the stickier, more curved tire this time and so far I just love them. My lean angle is so much more comfortable and insuring. I'm excited to change tires again so I can put a matching pair of these on my bike. I ride in all weather and these feel just fine in the rain. Not sure how long they will last but I've read somewhere between 3500 and 4500.
I used these tires on my '12 GSX-R 1000 and they were AWESOME! I live in Maine and the roads are terrible. They stuck to the road well, even in the hardest downpours and cold weather. I would say I'm a pretty aggressive rider, always accelerating and braking hard! I still got about 4500 miles out of the rear and could have gone longer. (Only reason i replaced it is cause it wouldn't pass inspection.) The front tire is still going at about 5000 miles, but It is starting to cup/feather a little from the crowned roads. I might get another 1000 miles on it. Ride was comfy and feel was great! I will definitely buy again.
Best street tire ever!
The tire combo I ordered was delivered as advertized. These are excellent tires and the price was great, also there were no shipping charges. I was a first time buyer and am more than satisfied. Thanks Motosport...
I used this tire at the track. Prior to this tire, I ran the Dunlop Q2 which I found to be an amazing tire. I wanted to try something different since Dunlop's prices went up but was hesitant to try the S20 since it's supposed to be a step "down" from the B'stone 003RS which I tried (at the track) and hated, but I gave it a shot after hearing some good reviews from track riders whose opinions I trust.
I was very impressed with this tire. The rear was stable and gripped well - no traction problems at all. The front provided good feedback with no slippage. I was concerned about flickability since I was used to the Q2 with such a sharp profile compared to the S20, but tried it out with no suspension changes at all and was pleased.
My only complaint, and the reason I gave this tire 4 stars, is that it did not wear well for me. Granted I was at a track that is known to eat up tires, the Dunlop Q2 actually lasts me longer (after some minor suspension tweaks - the S20 may last just as long after a proper suspension setup). I got 2 days out of the rear.
I think these are great tires for street use if you actually need the performance that these provide...which the vast majority of street riders do not.
