So Far So Good
Great tire so far only 200 miles, have rode through some water on roads from melting snow, some soft areas on the side of the road, traction has been great, I run a little lower psi for a wider foot print just coming off winter. front tire is wearing ok, I get on it hard when I can and traction allows, I have traction control on this bike and set at the least interfered with setting, these tires are never noisy, I ran them on my other bike before this one, so, so far so good , keep making this great tire and I'll keep using them, and thanks for helping to keep me rubber side down...

Superor Traction for Daily Commute
Bridgestone battleax have been my premier go to tire for the last 5 years that I have been riding sport bikes. They offer superior traction and great wet weather control during my daily commute. The water displacement grooves on the BT023s perform there job well keeping the contact patch planted firmly on the road even when running through unseen puddles during cornering and on the highway giving me confidence to push forward, somthing that other brands such as Perelli and Dunlops coudnt offer me. The BT023 center line I have to say is far superior then that of Perelli and Dunlop giving me the added benefit of longevity as I normally put down 12 to 1500 miles a month riding in a straight line to and from work. I love the fact that when these tires do ware down, they do it evenly unlike the Angel GTs which tend ware in an uneven wave pattern giving you a unstable bumpy ride. Im extremely impressed with the dual compound side wall features as these tires stick well during those long curves at 80-90 mph giving you the added confidence to lean the bike further without fear of the bike sliding out from underneath you especially when riding in wet weather. I typically ride these tires at 35psi and for me that seems to be sweet spot. When tire pressure reduces with the BT023 it generates feedback by stiffening up the steering letting you know it's time for a little more psi. I have to say all in all, this is great tire. I would definitely recommend this tire.
