Re: Bad idea to run Michelin Pilot Road 2 tires on the track?
The tires are not the weak point here. The rider is likely to crash the bike from input error before the tires ever cause the crash. The OP is better off concentrating his time on setting the bike up ergonomically, getting the suspension setup right, and setting the tire pressure correctly long before he should ever be concerned about the tires ability to grip. Those tires are more than capable. Hell, I'm sure you can find videos of top-level track riders putting those tires to the test on a track and making out just fine.
Go enjoy the track. Focus on improving your riding abilities and not focusing on tire ability. Those tires are fine. Let your pace dictate what tires you need in the future.
