FYI.
Dont worry so much about traction in the rain. Pilot powers will hold even with a knee on the pavement. Just dont push them much further than that. THe front starts to tuck shortly there after (for me anyways) Just dig your knee in alittle harder and lean your upper body off a bit more and you should be able to finish the corner as long as you didnt go in too hot to start with.

I have to admit the Pures grip in the rain like no other tire I have had before. Gave me great confidence even with a not right front end that weekend!
