    Great street tire for V-Strom

    Just put these tires on before a 4,000 mile ride which included Deals Gap. They worked great for both highway and twisties. I switched from Anakee II's because I wasn't going to be doing any off road riding and didn't want the unnecessary road noise on the highway. These worked perfect and wear evenly.

    I have standardized on these tires for my GS. Good price, excellent wear and they hold well in corners wet and dry. As long as Bridgestone offers this tire, this is the tire I'll use.

    V-Strom

    These tires are perfect on my vstrom 650. The Wee handles great in all weather conditions with the Battle Wings on front and back. Great performance in 100+ degree heat and freezing temps below 30. I ride a lot and I ride hard - these tires make it easier for me to ride safe.

    Brigstone Battle Wing Rear Tire

    This was original equipment on my R1200GS and it provided great all around service...there was no reason to change.

    Second set

    Ordering my second set for my dl650 looked around for a different set to try out,but from my experience and what research I've done, Battlewings are the way to go. Good milage out of these tires to boot.

    Excellent VStrom tire

    This is the second one I've put on the rear. Last one had over 10k miles on it and I don't "take it easy" on my tires. Good overall traction for a 90/10 tire, obviously better on street but still fair or better on trails and harder pack dirt. Sidewalls are quite rigid and give good feel in stability and cornering.

    Held up for over 7k.

    These tires held up really well on my 1200GS. Got over 7k out of them, Used them off road as well and they are ok..

    Bridgestone Battle Wings (Front & Rear) on Suzuki V-Strom 650

    These are some great tires. I rode them lightly for 100 miles to break them in. The next day I took some twisties pretty hard, and the tires felt very stable in the turns....much better than the stock trail wings. Traction is excellent in dry pavement. The tires do pretty well on gravel, but at higher speeds (over 30mph) I felt that the rear end was a little loose, but that's to be expected on tires intended for 90% street. I haven't ridden on wet pavement yet, and after just a few hundred miles can't really comment on tread life, but so far it appears to be an excellent value.

    Best tire for V-Strom on the street

    I really like these tires on my V-Strom! I have 60K miles on the bike and have gone through many tires and these are the best I have tried. I changed the last one at 7.5K miles. It would have gone at least another 2K but I was starting another long trip of over 3.5K. It was a little squared off but that is to be expected after 7.5K of highway miles. Price is good, handling is great, and mileage also good. This is a street tire, not good in the dirt, but I expect many V-Strom riders are like me and do very little riding off road.

    Good value

    Among the many adventure tires available, the Bridgestones are a good value and ride at least as well, if not better, than the Michelins

    Battlewings

    I've had five sets of these on the DL650 over the years. This goes to prove that for the money this seems to be the best all around tire for my application. I've rarely gotten more than 6k out a rear tire but that might be attributed to my riding style. Good tire on road but I wouldn't venture too far off the packed/paved surfaces.

    Excellent touring rubber

    Just got back from a 5034 mile trip back east and had spooned on a pair of these (front and back) in the hopes that I wouldn't be down to the cord when I got back home... There's better than half the tread left in the center of the tire! Superslab miles, averaged about 75mph across the country on I-80/90... All I might ask of this tire is a more rounded profile: since the Strom was fully loaded I didn't lean it over too far in the corners but I noticed that the chicken strips are pretty much not there, making me think that I'll run out of tire before I scrape pegs if I'm really trying to heat things up. Perfect long lasting touring tire, cheaper than the Metzler.
