The Scorpions are sweet tires. My buddy who owns a Buell Lightning S1, just put those tires on not long ago and loves them. They are not the best in the rain, but they are great in the dry. If you aren't an insane rider. He has no chicken strip on them, but says when he gets to the sides, it gets a little slippery. Maybe its just because he hasn't had them that long, but other than that they seem like good tires, not great though. I've heard good things about the Diablo Corsa and regular Diablo's.
