Buy them for ultimate dry grip. Not bad in the wet, but they ain't no touring tyre!

I Live near Chicago and see all the different weather issues mother nature loves to throw at us. I love to ride for miles for no reason but in the same light, I adore a good track. I need something that has good mileage with the ability to get nasty for a few days at a time.

With this odd marriage of Mileage and track readiness there is a compromise, it comes 'warm up time'. During the early season especially one must take caution to ride a good 5 miles before leaning and really getting on the throttle hard. If you keep patient then the tyre will def. reward you. Don't take the warm up time lightly.

Ive ridden on these for 14 months now, with 9000 miles on them (I never did a burnout or get crazy squirrelly on em). and 3 days of track days in the fall (so it wasn't crazy hot). Its more than I could ever expect to see from a tyre with such a diverse ability.

They are quite cheap compared to many others out there as well. And it doesn't hurt to hear that Bridgestone is the only tyre used in MotoGP to date. They have to be doing something right to make the GP riders say Michelin tyres were a disadvantage vs. the Bridgestones....

If your an occasional canyon or track rider that loves long rides and watches their money, than this is the only tyre you should look for. Just be patient before you rock the throttle...

Great tyres, plenty of dry grip and not bad in the wet either. They seemed to wear more unevenly than the old Diablo Corsa. Had a big moment on track when the tyre let go. It seem to have over-heated at the junction of the two compunds on the righ hand side of the rear. Never had any such problems with the old Diablo Corsa.

Spent a weekend at pembrey and they were like glue they felt planted every where, but wear could be a prolem as im down to the markers after two days,but it was very hot both days, anyone with a bit of a confidence issue go buy some r10s there awesome.
