I mount these on my 2006 KLR which I use for mixed riding, and I am highly pleased with them. The road performance is better than expected; predictable, quiet and stable, they feel very similar to a road tire. They are also good on dirt & gravel surfaces, offering excellent feedback before they begin loosing traction. I find their traction very good under all conditions. In about 20,000 miles my experience is that the fronts get about twice the mileage of the rears. These are the best road/dirt/all-weather combination tire I have found for my KLR.
This is the second set of Bridgestone tires I have bought for my bike. They handle great and the white letters look terrific. The tread life is average, but the handling makes up for it. I have no ties to Bridgestone, But I only purchase Bridgestone for my cars also. Again the grip makes up for the average tread life.
First ride,tires felt very good,solid feel. Winter day ride in north GA. Dry roads. Built cornering confidence very quick lean angles and holding the line where good. Found my self at a quick pace very happy with the T30 EVOs. Can't wait to see how many miles I get out of them.
Been riding a burgman 650 4 years and use bridgestone on front and back. First thing is tire 160/60/14 gives me 10+ k in a 8.5 month ride. Second Motorcyclesuper store shipped the tire out and I receive it in 1.5 days. Great job.
I highly recommend tire and store!
I have purchased and installed three of these tires for my 79 Moto Guzzi 1000. I have been very happy with the handling, ride, wear and traction. I have not had it slip on any turns except in a little gravel. The Guzzi handles very well and I push it as hard as I feel comfortable. I double caution signs in Ark plus 5 and all is good. Tried BT 45 and Pirelli Sport Demon but they would wear out prior to 5k. Getting between 8 and 9k with S11. I went tubeless which keeps tire temp down which will increase tread life. Could probably go longer but afraid to be out on a long trip and skunk my rear like a friend has a few times. Expensive if you have to get it changed while on a trip. Tires get stripes on them when you get to the cords. That stinks! John
