Bridgestone T31

Got your money's worth out of that. it turned into a "Baldini"
Yeah every year was like that why I will never buy anything Dunlop again not for me & I know you get race this or that but the cost is too much 4 me and they still wear fast not for me not Knocking anyone else. Try these won't let you down.

I'll take Wobblelops over BattleCraps any day, lol
I've had Michelins and Continentals that were crap as well.
I used to run Metzeler tires but I found them to be crap.

Many here have good luck with the PR5s so I'll probably look close at those next but my S21s although short lived, stick and handle very well.

I believe if the Battlax were real crap, Suzuki wouldn't put them on so many bikes nor would they put them on their flagship bike.

To each their own with tires, as it was a joke.
We each like what we like, and for many reasons.
But, as far as Suzuki not using them if they were real crap, lol...you do know this is Suzuki...right?
I love them, but they don't tend to make the best business decisions.
In truth, Bridgestone makes good tires, but Suzuki only uses them as they give them the best deal.
I'll ride any tire, but only like the feel of a few.
I also hate sport touring tires, with the exception of running them on the rear on the Busa(better tread life for the weight and torque).
There's nothing wrong with them, I just personally have no confidence in their grip.
I also hate the Michelin Pilot's...every style I've ridden, sport and sport touring, but again, just me.
I only get a couple thousand miles out of any brand at best anyway, and I like them sticky, so I can sling gravel on my friends behind me.
Dunlop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Q2's and Q3's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
lol

I feel you, it's always a hard decision to buy tires...which ones last but give grip....there is that fine line between tires gripping good and wearing fast or wearing a long time but giving less grip..

Then there's tri-compounds and sport touring tires that aren't Z rated...etc, etc....

I wouldn't be all that surprised if the Gen 3 comes with some sort of Battlax tires

Same as my Ram came with Good Year Wranglers...it will spin easily on dry pavement without even stomping the go fast pedal....winter tires are a must. Ram must have made a bulk purchase deal on them suckers....same as Suzuki did with Bridgestone.
