yeh, I think those SOB's on the east coast scored the Corsa's. I have yet to hear or see of one on the west coast that didn't have the BT's
I would be happy to trade my Corsa's with anyone that got the BT014's. I havn't had any issues yet, but I've read multiple reviews that said on this bike, it was a totally different (Better) ride in all aspects on the Bridgestones.

I've read good things about the Corsa's in general, but the difference between the two on our bike, supposedly the BT's make it much more stable/compliant.

It'd be nice to be able to push them hard back to back.

BT 104's. I finally hit Palomar 2 days ago. Dam Mountain was scared of the 1k... I tried to hit it 3 times and got rained out before the base. Which way did you go on 74? Lake Elsinore or Palm dessert? Dude you are like one of the first, Somebody else got theirs on the 23rd too, from Temecula. Haven't heard anything from him. I got mine on the 31st. Back to the BT's, they were Ok at Palomar, Didn't slide much, was a little weary since I have always ridden Dunlops. So I really never pushed them that far.

fuck palomar. i lived in sd last year.... you really should hit up telegraph canyon.. go down 163 south til you hit like L Street / telegraph exit.... go exit off and go left and then make a right down telegraph i think and just go all the way down til you get into the canyons. best roads ever!!!!!! as soon as i get my 1krr i'm riding down to LCR to get my suspension tuned and then hitting up telegraph.

Isn't that funny, the guys who got the certain ones may want the other set. Almost like we see Euro colors vs US on non Honda bikes.

There was only that Cycleworld write-up that found issue with the Corsa's. The initial press release was on the Corsa if I remember right.

I dont know, I am biased since I have used Rennsports and Super Corsas on the track and used the Diablo Corsas on my street bike. The Suzuki loves them much more than it did the OEM Bridgestone BT's. Difference is you can go fast with the Corsas on the track, faster than the BT's.

But as noted, the tradeoff is sidewall compliance, so the BT is probably a better tire for the street.

I got the BT's on mine. I think the only way to know which is better would be to ride them back to back. I have to say though that I probably don't have the ability to really tell the difference on this bike right now so I will take the reviewers word for it and be glad I got the Bridgestones.

Corsa's. A little jiggly in the turns on trashy surfaces, but after some more suspension adjustments by gRReg, it is getting better, almost gone now.

BTW, running 34 PSI front/back. I'm about 175lbs.
Try 32 front, 33 rear. That's what I'm running and you liked it the other day.

I don't care how they handle....they just look sooooooooooooooo cool with that yellow "corsa" on the side.....just kidding!! I do like that yellow though. No problems with mine yet. Time will tell.

I have to agree on the palomar vs. telegraph ride. The sweepers on telegraph canyon are faster and cleaner, and since i live in santee its a much shorter distance :) Palomar is like a german virgin good N tight! I'm probably going to go to pacific beach and then to the gas lamp in San Diego if any one in this area is interested
