dunlop strike=slider investment being wise

I recently found my rself in need of tire change. Was running dunlop qualifiers (120 in front 190 on rear) so any way i go thinking more of the same please. Come to find out they be on strike no shipments at local loyal shop i9ndef. asfar as I knew! So was sold sreet attack Continentals. same size basically , maybe 55 as opposed to 50's. dunnies were sticky out of my garage did not seem the case on cont. break in was more like collecting my throttle and ass using all dirbike instincts to stay good. Eventually it let go while starting out on a turn a bit of gas alittle lean and a little hip into the California concrete(pavement)AQnyone have any thoughts?

crappier tires are less forgiving. now you know their capabilities. so next time, be smoother on the throttle and don't lean the bike as much. less lean = better balance during a slide.
