I went with the Q3+ and they are excellent on the road. Vast improvement over the 214's! You can still break the Q3's loose at full throttle in 1st-2nd gear shift, but the corner grip is noticeable even at old man speeds.

Can I corner it at 35 to 40 mph. I went under 35 and got kinda scare on the stock.

The stock rubber is perfectly fine when warm but dicey in the wet weather / cold roads.
With that said most ANY tire is better then the stock rubber BUT no matter the tire when cold ....... it is no bueno

Is that 190 tire, a no go?  I don't ride anywhere much , only in the keys of FLORIDA.  My next set in the rear, I do like it to last longer.

Everything I have  seen says the 190 will fit and I will be putting on a 190/55 as my next. There is no correlation between lasting longer and a 190 rear tire (not exactly sure if that was what you were suggesting or not). There are any number of tires with no real answer to what will work for you ( they all will work) just pick out a few sport touring tires and throw a dart to pick.
