    the "softer" carcass is not something you'll notice. Just pull the trigger... you won't be sorry.

    If you are dead set against it... talk to the TTD Staff - many of whom race the smaller bikes and have decent take offs

    I don't know if I'd expect a Supercorsa race tire to have a "softer" carcass than a Bridgestone street tire.

    Unfortunately, takeoffs for that size aren't likely to be easy to come by, since relatively few bikes use them, and they last a long time.

    You wanna be the big boy track day hero on the cool vintage bike, sack up pal and buy the good tires.

    Or you could just call the insurance company and buy back one of the bikes you've yard sale'd at a hell of a discount. At least those had normal sized rubber.

    Yeah you won't notice a thing.

    Carcass really isn't something you feel that much.

    Guys, it's been like 3 years since Gabe came around. He knows everything. He's just looking for someone to validate his opinion. We know this.

    Gabe, Go special order the bridgestones new. You need them.
    -Gabe, is a racist.
