BT21 - OK for first track day??

Hi,

I bought a 2006 GSXR 1000 about a month ago. Looking to do my first track day in a few weeks.

Are Bridgestone BT21's OK for the first track day? They are in very good shape, and the date code is 48-11, so they are about 2.5 years old.

I will be buying some Q3's shortly, just didn't want to play the switch out game.

Mike

yup


Seen plenty of dudes on sport touring rubber doing 1st, 2nd, 3rd and subsequent track days. As long as it has proper amount of tread life left you'll be good.
