Ok peeps, something about motorcycling equipment so you should enjoy.

Found myself in the possession of (nothing funny happened, I got these legit)

Michelin Pilot Sport front

Bridgestone BattleAx BT012R Rear.


Havent really found a Tire review website and dont know jack about tires except that they go on your bike and you have to put air in them.

anyway....what are your (my fellow riders, races, and squids) feelings on these tires?

those of you who are used to drama, flaming and non-motorcycle related posts, please don't be mad at me for this post. But please read and hopefully learn something as I hope to.

i know that the michilen are supposed to be awesome.. heat quick and are nice and stickey..

i dont know bout the bridgestones.. i was reading sport rider and they where saying that they felt really squirmy some times on exits, they had it on every bike from the 600 to the 1000s they did it that way as a controlled test, i got the issue at home, i can give you complete specs when i get home meng... btw they tried this at jerez..

as for myself ive dunlops always from the 204 to the 207s what i got currently and i have no complaints.. but im not burnin em either...

i think im gonna go w/ the michelin sports next time around.. cause kepi (jeff) and phife (dave) where sayin they were awesome..

ed are you looking for a street tire or track tire btw?

Two of my NC riding buddies use BT010 and BT020 front and rear (I might have the order mixed up - softer up front), and love them. I had BT56 (sport-touring) on my Hayabusa and loved them. My new Michelin Sportec M1 are much better in the wet.

I've never used the Pilot Sport, nor know anyone using them.

Don't use distinctly different tires front and rear. The different tire profiles, tread patterns, and tire height will have an adverse effect on handling. I personally would buy a BattleAxe front (softer than the 012)and either sell the Pilot Sport or keep it for later.

But once warm stick well and wear well.

Damn Steve, pimping for some free food now.

I agree, the Pilots where some of my least favorite tires. I had very little confidence in them because they took a long time to warm-up and never really stuck as well as say...M1's of Diablos. Though, Pilots offer great economy because they due last forever.
