So far so good
I have less than 1000 miles on this tire. Grip and handling are excellent. I judge value by how many miles I get before destruction. I've tried all the major brands with usually 5000 or less miles. Maybe this "GT" will do better on my FJR than others (Metzler, Shinko,Dunlop, Pirrelli,Bridgestone, etc.)
