Double Darkside

I went double darkside on my '94 1500 Goldwing. I bought this tire after reading favorable info from other darkside riders. I haven't put that many miles on since mounting the tire, but it wasn't hard to mount (I do my own tire mounting) and I had to REMOVE weights to balance it. The tire "feels" good on the road. I have been "pushing" the tire more & more in the curves and it stays planted. Can't comment on durability yet as I haven't had it that long. This was my first purchase from the Motorcycle Superstore and based on that experience, it will not be my last. Right now, I'd have no problem recommending this tire to others.

Loved it!

I'm extremely impressed with this tire. I run it on the front, yes the front, of a Victory Cross Country. After 17k miles it still has half the tread left. I hope to get a full 30k miles out of it. It handles great. Better than the Dunlop E3 that came stock on the bike. It will fit lots of makes and models such as Goldwings, Victory Visions, and others. I hope they never stop making this great tire just as it is right now.

Battalax BT-45 seems to outrank Dunlop OEM tire

I ride a 2012 Goldwing Motor Trike. The front tire requirements are different for a trike. I got the rear Battalax based on online forum discussions. The wear seems to be good. I have only put a little over 300 miles on it. Time will tell if I get more miles out of these. The OEMs gave me 7,500 miles. That is very poor in my opinion.

BT-45

I have been using this tire for years on a cafe Guzzi and it has never let me down. I use the 80 profile to speed up stearing input on the front and the back. I would also suggest the lower profile if you're short legged, a lot cheaper than lowering the suspension.

So far so great

Just ran over 3,800 miles on the B45 on a trip out west. Great in the rain and super in gravel. Tracked straight as an arrow on the super slab. Just went double dark so cant comment on tread life yet.

BT-45 Battlax

I put this tire on my 2014 Goldwing Trike as the OEM Front tire (Exedra) only went 6,500 miles and was on the wear bars. This tire handles the corners so much better than the OEM and I'm sure it will out last it hopefully 3 to 1. The price, service, and delivery time is great from Motorcycle Superstore.

Using this on the front of my goldwing 1800 trike. This is the second one I've used and seems to be the smoothest ride of all I have tried.

Great tire for vintage street bikes

This is my second BT45 on the rear of my KZ650B2. Got around 8000 miles on the first one. Good handling as well. I did not give this tire a wet traction rating due to the fact that this all original 36 year old bike does not get ridden in the rain.

BT 45

This is the best front tire that I have ever run on my trikes. I run the BT 45 rear tire on the front. I get anywhere from 22,000 to 26,000 miles per tire. I try to keep a new one on hand at all times. Thanks MC-Super store for putting them on sale from time to time.

This is my 4th BT-45 on the front of my 1800 Honda GoldWing. Great tire for long distance riding. I average at least 20K on this tire. Great value for the price also.

I have this rear tire on my goldwing trike as my front tire. Love the smooth ride, and how easy it turns. Looks great, and even better with my ring of fire glowing on it. Will buy again.
