Bridgestone S11 wins!
Michael - June 05, 2009(Newfield, NY)
I have long preferred the S11 to other tires I have had in the past. Someone recommended that I try Dunlop instead, so I did and found that it does not handle as well or last as long. The price at Motorcycle Superstore was the best I could find online and I actually ordered 2 of these tires as my Suzuki Madura 1200 eats rubber for breakfast. Very happy with my purchase.
fit my 1983 xj 750 perfect!

Excellent tire. Great in the rain. Makes tar snakes disappear.

"85 Yamaha Virago" This is my 2nd Spitfire rear tire. The old tire had 15,000 miles on it. I highly recommend it for older bikes. This tire is fantastic in the rain. I have been on higways in thunderstorms doing 75-80 MPH with no problems in the corners. I even put a Spitfire on the front of my bike. Much better then Dunlops.

I was sold after putting the first set on my GoldWing in 1996. S27s on front and S11s on the rear. Best handling tire I've ever run on a heavy bike, and I'll never go back to another brand. Averaged 12k on rear and 18k on front tires. With this tire on a touring bike (GoldWing, Suzuki GS1100GKe, and H-D FLHTCU), you never have to slow down for weather (except ice). I have ridden year-round in 19 countries with Spitfires on several bikes, and highly recommend them to anyone.

Work great on my Harley. Corner nice and tar snakes are not an issue any more.

Excellent tire. Very happy with it.

I actually purchased my first set of Spitfires because of the raised white letters. The performance and durability made me buy only Spitfires ever since (three years now) I only buy them from Motorcycle Super Store because they always have them (no back orders) and the price is right.

I put this tire on my 86' Yamaha FZX700 and I will never use another rear tire after using this Spitfire! I have over 7000 miles on the tire and have plenty of tread left; I've put this tire against every road condition you can imagine and it's kept me happy 100% of the way: long trips, packing double, canyon carving, rain, etc. Highly recommended, you won't be disappointed!

This is the second set of Spitfire's I've had on my 1985 XV1000 Virago. The look is correct for the bike and they handle and wear very well. I can't speak for wet traction, as I never ride in the rain. I got years of service from the last set, and I expect the same from these.

Nice looking tire. I haven't had much distance this year due to cool wet weather. It has great traction in both wet and dry road conditions. I especially like the fast shipping and the nice price. Thanks for your service, Motorcycle Superstore. As long as I can ride, I'll be your customer.
Good tire for the money.

I picked up the Spitfire about a month ago to replace a Spitfire 22 that I have been using for about 5 or so years now. I bought that tire used and put a lot of miles on it and the only reason I replaced it was because it had a puncture and the Honda Dealer here mounted it backwards when my valve stem ripped off. Since then I have learned to mount my own tires. But I have been using the spitfires as much as I can because they perform really good in all types of weather and seem to last a long time. I actually patched the other tire and am using it on my other bike which gets less use. The only drawback I see with the spitfires is that I didn't have the money to buy another set. The way I see it for $20 more than a cheap tire you get everything you should expect out of a tire and more. Keep the rubber side down and the shiny side up.

So far the tire seems to be doing a very good job, it tracks well around corners. I have not had to drive in wet conditions so that is yet to be seen.
not for me again

I have always ran Pirelli, but because of price I decided to try these on my Yamaha tour deluxe. I will not buy them again, they are noisy and track terrible on tar snakes. I have never felt this unstable while cornering as it seems very loose in the back on a hard corner. I'm going back to Pirelli!
