Metezler 200/55  K2 rear , K1 front ready for Donington. Don't think they would be much good in the rain LOL. Hopefully scrub them in soon.

That's an R6 race bike , a Ducati 959 sports with a Superlegera type Akros on it and a Ktm 390 Enduro. All my Little sister's. 
The R6 has got a lot of stuff on it , just needs a little work since it had a high side in Spain. 
Yes I wish they were mine aswell,  she lost db killers out her back pack the other day  whilst on the Ducati on her first ride, and said he ears were bleeding 😂,  it is extremely loud more than my Aprilia factory with Akros  
I will have a go on it soon.

Do you use the same tyres Ice-mille? Unbelievable tyres can't wait to see how they perform on track with tyre warmers.

These tyres are so confidence inspiring , it almost made me giggle in the helmet.  You can really take liberties with them . They would rather lift the front than slide the rear. 
I bought a set of scrubs first as I wanted to know if it would handle with a 200 tyre, and it did for a while but something went wrong,  which I got to the bottom of , the forks were twisted from a massive pothole I went in.
I was doubting the Maxton free setup when the shock was rebuilt,  but now it's finally make sense.  I reckon it is spot on, added a bit more ride height and it turns in so quick with no tankslaping only when it lifts the wheel on lean which is understandable.
I thought I might have to be little careful scrubbing them in,  I could not believe how quick they were to warm up and this was the tyre after 25mins of ridding 😂  . Can't wait to give them a proper test at Donington

it's a bit of an eye opener when you wind it on out of a corner and it lifts the front cranked over, had it a few times on my Pirelli sc's and luckily it has always ended well, more luck than skill though.

So right hemi,  it took me by surprise the first couple of times.  The Braketechs!   What can I say than they saved my life, they slow the bike down so so fast but virtually with no lock up, could be the Ferodo pads that Braketech recommended it doesn't have that initial hard bite but then it scrubs the speed off so quickly,  I have got to recalibrate my brain otherwise I will be braking to early. 
Them tyres like your SCs are shocking,  I got into a situation where it had lifted the front wheel on lean but I wanted to change direction for the next left ,and it done it, not something I want to repeat.  I am glad I caught up in the brake department , them Braketechs you got use them to believe it 😂
