used them last year. tried a rear first and really liked it. stuck good, lasted about 6000 miles, when it slid under power it was very controllable. After wearing it out, I replaced both the front and rear with conti-forces. I had a bad head shake on left hand turns from the very beginning. I hated the tire on the front! I went back to Bridgestiones this time..010 on front...020 on back. I like these tires VERY much. I have never had another tire that gave me so much confidence in the front end. I have had bridgestones bt56's (OE), Contis, and now back to BStones on the bike in 22000 miles(3 front, 4 rear). I have to change them again this month and I will get the 010/020 combo again. All three of the different tires have cupped on the front. all seem to get me about the same mielage. I can save a few dollars on the Contis, but I don't feel the trade-off in reduced handling/confidence is worth it.

Talking

Thanks for the Imfo I have a 99 blackbird with 42,000 miles on it I found the perfect tire. just got 8,000 miles on them.

Rear: just about spent MAYBE 500 more left, this also Includes a whole day at the dragstrip

Front: This is the good news, maybe another 5-7 grand to go and no CUPPING .

I have also run the BTO-10, 20 and the BTOcombo, all cupped
BTO-10 rear 5,000
BTO-20 rear 6,000

I always run my air pressure 42/42

In case your wondering If the macadems stick, ground down my feelers in W.V. while running 42/42

What tires did you find? It sounds like you dont like the 010 or 020 unless you post made me as confused as I think you made me.
