Sounds good

Are there any Bad tyres anymore though ?......can't say I have really noticed over recent years tbh....not since the Phantoms and Road Runners of the 80's....But then again they were better than previous options.

Pay me

If I were sponsored by Bridgestone I would probably rate them too..... Probably pays £50 a set in return for some hype... Useless review really, mcn your killing me guys! Can't you just review all the sport touring on two or three control bikes and then rate them in preference order... Even better do it on the street?!?!!! Where we actually use them... I don't care how good a t30 is on track when it's designed for at least 70% road use!!

Err on the side of grip

the bike mags have been pushing sport/touring tyres as being good enough for sports riding on the road. Well if your a fast road rider, the more grip with a sports tyres means you can ride faster n safer.

 

Yes, the fact that a modern sports tyre might have more grip then you could ever use on the road just gives a bigger margin of safety, the difference could be sitting upside down in a field wondering why you crashed. Err on the side of grip.

Wet Grip

venturer - Since most bikes (including race replicas) will run out of ground clearance before traction in the dry, I would rather err on the side of more wet grip, even on the track*.

 

And unless one is racing, using race tires than need tire warmers and still go bad after a few heat cycles is a waste.

*Last time I crashed on the track was in the rain.

Amazing

Went to haslems last week on the elites and used these tyres, could not believe the grip straight out of the pits, yes it was warm, yes it was dry, but there was no sliding or losing grip at all. They definitely get my vote! Will be sticking them on my speed triple when the current tyres need replacing!

I have put these on my F800ST and some 2000 miles later I can confirm they are awesome. The level of grip is staggering and if the wet performance is as good then it is an improvement on the BT23 (which was a very good tyre in its own right) that bodes well for everyone.
