Reader Mike Lecras came to us looking for the perfect combination touring and sporty rubber for his 2009 Suzuki GSF1250 GT. He was running the standard Dunlop D218N 180/55 V17 at the rear.

MCN's resident agony uncle Chris Dabbs replied: "We¹d point you in the direction of the Bridgestone BT015 as your first choice.

The triple-compound tyre keeps its shape well over the tyre life and it takes a track day to get the rear moving around a lot. If you want a more hard-wearing option that¹s marginally cheaper, try the BT021."
