    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.

    BT-45

    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.

    BT 45

    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.

    Put it on the front of my Kawasaki Concours. Working good. Last one I put on the front of a Honda Pacific Coast. Got over 21,000 miles out of it. A no-brainer.

    Double dark sided 130/70/18H

    Up date- Just a great all around tire, I have a 03 Goldwing, 105K Mi. This is my 3rd tire Rear on the front, mounted forward. I ride hard and fast, centramatics for balancing, after market stearing bearings. Great tire wet/dry even in the hot Texas heat! Highly recommend tire.

    BT45 rear tire

    Excellent price and fast shipping at Superstore. The tire works well with my 1970 CB750, looks good and holds me on the road.

    Great tire for racing too

    So I put these tires on my XR100 race bike (Mini Racing). They've been fantastic, once you start to trust them, you're amazed how much grip they have. Knee down every corner, if you have the ability. They do chatter on some faster turns if you have them cranked over for a while. Useful warning sign, but they'll still continue to grip. All the fast guys love these tires.

    Buying 4th set

    My Triumph came with these. I see no need to change. I am 6'5, 150 lbs and ride moderately aggressive but most driving in Texas is straight roads. I get 8k on rear and 14 k on front. Worn, they start to wander on turns with some scalloping on front but its minor.

    BT-45 on 2007 Goldwing Trike

    Mounted this tire reversed on trike front. No vibe or low speed wobble like the Michelin Pilot Active it replaced. Bit stiff at first, but biting better after few hundred miles. This tire + Counteract Balancing Beads = some nice handling. Can't comment on longevity, but 2200 miles down, pleased so far. And MotorcycleSuperStore, great job as always.
