Dunlop Q3's or Bridgestone S21's ?

Haven't been able to find any reviews on the Bridgestone S21's and I've always run the Q3's on my CBR 600rr and now on my CBR 1000rr, and I absolutely love them. My only complaint is I burn through the rear like crazy, but I know it's a soft compound and where I live it's pretty hot, so it comes with the territory. I'm ready for new rubber and curious as to others opinions and comments regarding comparison of the two tires

Im a Q3 person. Its a great tire all around that it helps you keep those wheels planted on the ground.

I'm a huge Q3 person!!! I have used 4 sets on my 600RR I just picked up a 1000RR the other day and has these tires. I road on a canyon here in Cali very sporty turns. These seem to be as good if not better than the Q3's they get VERY sticky!! They are a harder compound so they should last longer than Q3's which was my biggest complaint with the Q3's. However one thing I dont like is when leaned over I get a uncomfortable feeling like I can't lean the bike over more without losing traction... Hard to describe but it feels like I'm riding on the edge of the tire even though I know I am not. However I haven't checked the tire pressure since I bought the bike so next time I do a canyon that is one thing I will check. I also found a couple of reviews on Revzilla.

Well, I'll be getting new rubber today, since all I've run are Dunlop Q3's I'm gonna try the S21's, at least after running through this set I'll be able to compare the two

Check out 44Teeth and Baron von Grumble on YouTube. They just did a 1000 mile ride from London to Spain or something with a trackday thrown in on S21s. I think they were pretty happy with them. Its a R1 vs ZX-10 video I believe.

Slapped on the S21's today ... They definitely have a different feel ... I'll really know which tires I prefer once I tackle some twisties.

I've put about a 1000 miles on my s21's and so far I love them. I felt a little uncomfortable at first but once I got used to the feel of them I was fine.
