This is my second pair, I loved the first set. Great dry traction, very good wet traction and way more milage out of them than originally expected. I was looking for about 8000 miles but got a bit over 12000 added to the great traction these are terrific deal.. I'm not a racer type but do a lot of sports touring. Very satisfied and the price I got for a set was very fair.
I'm on my second pair of these tires. It's my second set for a good reason, the first pair performed up to all expectations. I got a little over 12000 miles out of the first set which is about 50% more than I originally expected. I only had limited rain exposure but even then they were very, very good. I'm not a racer type but do a lot of sports touring on a BMW K bike. You won't be sorry with these Bridgestones and the price paid was quite fair.
Everything I've read says these will be great tires. My only complaint is that Dennis Kirk sent me a tire that was over a year old and one that was 10 months old. I hope that it doesn't affect the performance or longevity.
