I fit these to my 2012 Yamaha Super Tenere. The stock Bridgestone BW tires were fine until the weather cooled off, then they were very slippery. I was looking for a 90-10 street/dirt tire with good wet grip and cold weather performance. I found it here. I considered trying something else, but after thinking about it, I decided I was quite satisfied with these. Therefore, this is still another set.
They lasted as long as the original tires, but with much better grip once it became cooler weather. The stock tires were fine when warm and dry. These are just as good if not better under those con editions and much better when the weather gets cold or wet. If I were going to take a very long trip I might consider something else, but for my current uses, I like the traction enough that I'm willing to give up some longevity. They stick almost as well as some sport rubber I've used on sportier bikes in the past. It is hard to fault the grip and feedback/feel.
The price has come down enough that they are now a very good deal.
