Tires feel great, changed from stock at 12,000 miles due to upcoming trip, feel good so far.

My bike handles so much better than before. I like them a lot!

Great so far
Randy - July 18, 2012(Vilonia, AR)
I am about to buy my second 704 for my '06 Gold Wing. I love the handling and ride and I got 14,000mi out of the first one so who wouldn’t try another one. Love the tire!!!!
3000 miles on right now
Joe - July 18, 2012(Asheville, NC)
We put on this Brigestone with hopes of a great all around tire, we haven’t had good luck with the E-3's. as of our last 3000mile trip this rear tire is excellent, we have hit many twisties and had to do 150 miles of Heavy RAIN--NO SLIPPING OR SKIDDING-I think this tire will be the best I have ever put on my 1800 Goldwing.
pete - February 26, 2013(Currie, NC)
Best tire form the GL18 for the price, never had a bad one. Other brands, I've had defective tires show up.
Bridgestone G704 Exedra Touring Rear Tire
Dean - March 09, 2013(Glendale, AZ)
Tried a lot of different tires and like the Bridgestone the best. The worst tires I ever had on my Wing were Metzeler, will never buy those again.

I bought this tire for my 2012 Victory Cross Country. I Have tried Dunlops, Avon's and this is my third go with Bridgestones. By far they have the best cornering and wet/dry traction. The tread life is a little shorter than the Dunlops AND Avons but the traction cornering and value far out way the tread life difference.

2012 Goldwing --Don’t put E3s on your bike. Bridgestone’s handle better and are much quieter . Goodbye Dunlop!!
john a. - October 23, 2012(arnold, MO)
This is the second Bridgestone 704 on my victory crossroads I have Bridgestone on the front also the bike handles very well they last longer than metzlers about the same as the Dunlap e3s.
Back to stones
Law - July 18, 2012(Salt Lake city, UT)
Put a set of the E3's on my 03 GW1800. Not pleased at all. They feel loose in the corners, really loose on any slurry seal. Have ran stones for the past 40k, decided to switch to E3's. But they are coming off tomorrow. I'll sacrifice mileage for performance and safety. Little bit softer tire, means better traction.
Vern - January 05, 2010(Santa Ana, CA)
I appreciate that my order was received in a timely manner and the price was right, thank you for your great service;.
Better than Elite III
John - September 30, 2009(Ramsey, MN)
My second one and I like it better than the elite III, Just my opinion!
Eddie C. - February 10, 2011(Valley Bend, WV)
I have two Goldwings. 2002 with 170,000 miles and 2007 with 101,000 miles on it. I have used most brands of tires. I only use Bridgestone 704 and 709 anymore. They handle great and the rear I get 10,000 to 11,000 miles the front I get around 20,000.
Tim - April 04, 2012(Tinley Park, IL)
My '02 Wing came with the Bridgestones. Initially I wasn't happy with the mileage on the rear tire but what little you might lose there is made up for in safety. I let a dealer talk me into some other tires and I almost put the bike down in the first rain I rode through. I would recommend the Bridgestones to any biker that rides in inclement weather as most Wing riders do!
Danny - June 13, 2012(Denver, CO)
These tires only lasted me about 8000 miles on my aggressively ridden Goldwing. I love taking the corners fast, and these tires aspire confidence. Unfortunately with a heavy bike and usually a heavy passenger, the tires only lasted one year. They are worth it though.
Ronald - May 30, 2008(Jelgava, AE)
Very good on the dry road. Little bit slippery on the wet road, when bike is heavy loaded.
Bridgestones are a winner
Eric - May 03, 2011(Plainfield, IL)
I've previously run the 2003 stock Dunlops (not the Elite IIIs) and Metzler Marathons on my 2003 Wing, and the Bridgestone Exedras are by far the smoothest. They grip the road like glue. The rubber on the Stones seems much softer than the Metzlers, so I might not get the mileage I got on the Metzlers. But that's a tradeoff I'm willing to make. The prices at Motorcycle-Superstore can't be beat. For comparison, I called a local dealership for a quote. If I had purchased the tires at a local dealership (at a 15%-off sales price) and had them mounted by the local dealership, the cost would have been $773 -- $444 for the 2 tires and $398 (!!) to mount them. I got the tires from Motorcycle-Superstore for $310 (delivered in 2 days!) and paid a preferred installer (who happened to be just 3 blocks from my home) $100 to mount them. Total: $410. I saved $363! The amount I paid for the 2 tires AND mounting ($410), was just $12 less than what the local dealer was going to charge me just to mount the tires! Unbelievable.
Dennis S. - September 07, 2011(Boise , ID)
The mileage that you get on a set of these tires leaves a lot to be desired. Should be able to get another 2,000 miles or more.
John R. - September 27, 2011(Liberty, NC)
Only had these tires on my Goldwing for a couple of weeks, but so far they seem to have a lot more stability than the Elite III. I was impressed with how quick they were delivered.
G704 and G709 Bridgestones
Phil - September 30, 2009(Morgan Hill, CA)
I've had the tires for about a month, and the 1 to 5 category ratings above don't have a "n/a" field, so they are not too accurate. As far as handling goes these are a big improvement over the stock Dunlops. The tire curvature radius is smaller, so the bike leans with much less effort. Took me by surprise at first! Entered turns with way too much lean at first, but now that I'm used to them I love the handling. I find I'm more confident in the twisties, a little more speed too. Definitely recommended!
Terry - October 26, 2009(Huntington, WV)
Best all around tire available for Goldwing, bar none. Pricing here is excellent on it also.
Bridgstone G704 Review
Matthew - November 09, 2009(Milford, NH)
The tire is smooth, balanced and has great traction. In my opinion it had better traction and rode nicer than the original tire. I can't rate tread life as this is the first time I've used this tire and it only has about 300 miles on it so far.
love these tires
rick - April 29, 2010(myrtle beach, SC)
Put these new stones on two days before I left for a road trip to the mountains. Man what a difference over the OEM Dunlop. They stick like glue and track very nicely. No problems at all when wet, and I got caught on some super curvy roads in some very heavy rain. I am planning a trip to Maine this summer so I'll have to let you know on the tread life, but at just over 2000 miles on these tires, and they are looking good, with no signs of cupping yet.
Joe - July 18, 2012(LaMarque Texas, TX)
I have a 2012 Gold Wing and I have 9,902 miles and I think that I might get another thousand...but don’t want to push it ordered new one today, but except for the mileage they are great. Front tire looks great, might get 20,000 maybe.
Bridgestone G704 &G709
Joe - July 03, 2012(Fruitvale, BC)
Bought the front and rear tire for my 2008 Goldwing about a month ago and have put up 2,000 miles of the best cornering and handling on this bike ever. No comparison to the orignal tires, they are so much better it was like getting a brand new bike. I haven't seen any excessive signs of wear yet but even if I get 25% less life out of them they are worth every penny and I will definitley buy them again.
Gorby - May 09, 2013(indianapolis, IN)
First time with this model tire. After 1100 miles in the mountains. Im very pleased and if mileage is good this will be the tire of choice.
Best Tire for the Goldwing
Roy - June 12, 2013(Allen, TX)
This will be the second set of Bridgestones on my 2012 Goldwing. Have always sworn by E3's but the Exedra is a better tire for ride comfort and handling. Great tire!
Danny - June 29, 2012(denver, CO)
This tire is awesome, it handles a 900 pound bike through the twisties beautifully. Just had a 400 mile weekend over 4 mountain passes and loved it. The Goldwing is such a kick a** bike...havent ridden in rain at all really so no review there. My last Bridgestone only lasted 8,000 miles but I usually have a heavy passenger...makes up for tread life with outstanding overall performance.

Paul - March 01, 2010(Fort Collins, CO)
Have tried Dunlops, Avon's and this is my second go with Bridgestones. By far they have the best cornering and wet/dry traction. Strong crosswinds make the bike a handful and mileage is not the best with these tires. However they stick like glue and are worth the price.
George - May 28, 2010(Waynesboro, VA)
This tire feels so much better than the original Dunlop. Sticks very well.

neal - July 03, 2012(san bernardino, CA)
Don’t know about tread life yet. Only have 1000 mi. so far. The rest is good though.
Jim - June 26, 2012(Cranbrook, BC)
mileage could be better. ride is good.
Blane - July 18, 2012(Edmond, OK)
Best tire for cornering on the GL1800 I have put on so far. Not as noisy when cupped as the Elite III. Have 6,000 mi on the rear and it is ready for replacement. Will be going back to the Elite III as they last much longer and scrape the foot pegs just as well as the Bridgestones.
