Have been having good response from the Bridgestone BT 010 & especially the BT 014 & think my 010 will be replaced by an 014 as some of the other tyres on my three sportbikes.

....kinda like.....

...tires are kind of like news shoes.....you just never know how they're going to work until you've worn them a few times!:D I'm doing alot of touring this spring and summer, so I have switched from Dunlop 208ZR to Dunlop D220's!! Talk about an interesting feel! I've been very impressed so far! I haven't lost as much as I thought I would!:D

docta_freeze is so right. Here I am with Metzeler MEZ-2 no longer made, Michelin Sport & Bridgestore BT-010 & 014 on my three bikes. The Michelins are stock from a new bike in August of '04.

So pretty hard to make a compairson of a make ESPECIALLY as some keep on changing designs as much as once a year. You go through a set of tyres a year & there you are on the same make only their latest design, so hard to say which is the best, besides to one that rides track days a lot to others that only use the road to hwys & to those that ride basically flat straight roads to those that ride roads with a maze of twists in them NOT to mention types of bikes to in many cases how we ride our bikes.
