Great tire
Have used this tire on my current bike (FZ) and my previous bike (Ninja), no complaints, good traction both wet and dry and get very good miles out of them. Plan on buying one for the front tire in the future.

Cheapest price on the Internet
After searching the internet for over 2 hours, finally found that Dennis Kirk was the cheapest for these tires, even had them at my doorstep within 24 hours of paying for them. Haven't any miles on the tires yet, but have gone through a set of BT-021's and loved them. Can't see what the 23's can do

Great tire for great price.
I bought this tire to replace the BT023 that I had on my R1200RT. It was such a great tire I just went for the same thing again. Tons of grip in the canyon and very decent tread life. And best of all Dennis Kirk had the lowest price available. Shipped fast directly to my dealer.

no Complaints
I have 500 miles on this tire so far, and I would say it's met my expectations.
