Best Tire I've Owned and I had all Kinds

I will not get another brand of tire Dunlop, Michelin Etc... This tire never let me down and lasted one full year that’s not bad for a gixer 1000. I use to put a new tire on the back in 2 months I'm on over a year and 13,000 miles later still have the tires. Just ordered a new set and hope they last but I'm not worried. They will !!!

BT-021

WOW!!! Just over 10,000 miles and ordered my new set. These tires even beat the Pilot HPX for mileage. Was putting on new tires on the Busa every 3k miles (HPX got about 7) but these lasted longer and are better priced. Thank you Bridgestone!! Dan in Phoenix---Yes, it is 112 degrees here today :) BTW...There is not a shred of chicken strip on current tires ;)

Shop Recomended

I bought a 96' ZX-11 as a commuter/2-up bike aside from my 2007 Buell ZX12R. When I took the bike in for a major tune up I asked for a suggestion for tires. The BT-021 are what the Staters use here in Washington. With good result, these are great tires. 6300 mi. on Pirellis on my XB and a brand new set of Corsas waiting for install......What to do? What to do?

Excellent tire for BMW R1100RT

I have had the BT-021 rear on for about a month, and have put about 2000 miles on the tire. The rear is showing little to no wear and has performed perfectly in both wet and dry conditions. The Bridgestone front and rear set get 50 to 80 miles of use Monday-Friday, and 200-300 miles on weekends. So far I am very pleased with the Bridgestone BT-021 tire set and the service I received from Motorcycle Superstore.

Wow!!! What a great tire!!!

I put a set of these tires (front/rear) on my 06 GSXR 600 and rode from CA to Deal's Gap. Spent a week there and never felt them slip once. I did notice the turn in was a bit slower, but I expected that from a ST tire. Got caught in 3 T-storms on the way back and they performed flawlessly. Rode over 6000 miles in 17 days and by the time I returned home, the rear was just beginning to get a flat spot in the center, mostly because I made it back in a little over 40 hours and was slabbing it the whole way! You will not be disappointed with these if you are looking for something that will perform well and give you great mileage. I should get 10000 miles or more out of the rear.

Another Winner from Bridgestone

"Street Vibrations" 4-day weekend in Reno was comin' up. My rear BT-014 was down to threads. Instead of buying new BT-016, decided to go for better wear-life with BT-021. Am more than pleased with grip & tread pattern. Great trip to Reno. -- JS

A nice tire for the price

I am happy with this tire (and the free shipping from motorcycle-superstore). The Battlax BT-021 Rear Tire is replacing a michelin Pilot 2 tire. Don't know yet which is better, but the BT-021 is a great ride.

2003 Yamaha Fz1

Put 11,000 aggressive miles on my rear tire. Obviously it is totally shot, but I couldn't think of switching brands or models. I am totally pleased with the traction and warm-up times.

I Love Fresh Rubber!

This tire is awesome. It grips the road so well! I haven't erased my chicken strips yet (I'm still wearing off the protective coat) but I know I'll be able to trust these tires for a long time. Ample amount of tread and it feels good leaning into turns with this baby. Plus, you can't beat the price.
