Driving on a combination of roads for 6000 spirited miles
Had these fitted to my FJR1300A. I use BT 023's and wanted to see the improvement from these tyres. My initial impression was great. They are precise and make the bike feel lighter and accurate. On long slow bends they are fantastic. The bike drops down and flicks back up-confidence inspiring!! I have ridden them on all combination of roads including Europe. They have now done 6k miles. Only at 5.5K did a flat line appear on both front and back tyres. However, this flat line could not be felt when riding and had no adverse effect on the tyre performance. They warm up quickly (experience has taught me to take it steady for the first 10 miles of the ride!!) and have proven to be excellent in the wet (torrential downpour). They are a superb tyre for the FJR both for touring with luggage and pillion and also having a bit of fun when out with other bikers. I would buy them again and recommend to others? They boasted 20% more mileage, with 023's I gained 8500miles, with these I am looking at a hopeful 10K. At the moment, there is still plenty of meat on both tyres.

Been using these on my FJR1300, fantastic tyre although i would emphasise on making sure you buy the 'A' spec tyre as the previous owner hadn't and front tyre worn badly on the shoulders due to the excess weight of the FJR, good feedback and confidence in the wet and great mileage.Work equally well two up and loaded for touring,no complaints. Will be replacing with another set shortly
