"For the last 80,000 miles, Bridgestones have always graced both ends of a 1996 Triumph Sprint 900. A heavy bike with turbine like acceleration, it wears out the rear in about 5,000 miles but both get replaced as new tires almost equal new bike after riding clapped out rubber just to make it to the next paycheck. Motosports smokin' deal on a Michelin Pilot power had me singing in my helmet at the wonderousness of these tires. They rail around corners and give great confidence in the rain. They even make the suspension feel young again, doing a great job of absorbing bumps on the flat and around curves. Great tire. Can't wait to buy another set and get a blast of "New Tire Ecstacy""
