hi i have a gs 500 (suzuki) my bike has coverd 7500 mile on bt45s,
however although the front had plenty of tred left centre the sides became very steppy and uneven . the rear was on the limit at centre but as new either side so very uneven ware . i spoke to a motorcycle tyre supplier who recomended me to change to roadriders (am26s) as they offer better value for money and are a longer lasting product with the same preformance as bridgestones ......
mine were supplied on loose wheels for £155 inc ... a saving of £50 happy dayz ...
I bought an old K100 RT to commute into London on. It came with Roadriders fitted. I've now done over 10,000 miles with a mixture of dual carrageway speeds and heavy traffic filtering, all with lashings of rain. Initially i had a slow wobble at speed which i put down to the tyres but, after investigation, it turned out the forks were slightly bent! Once this was fixed the wobble reduced considerably, though has not disappeared completely. I wasn't sure about the Roadriders but they have worn very well and been great in the wet. I am going to replace them with the same.
I have had 3 failures with my Road Riders. The bottom of the tread grooves cracked through to the casing. This has all happend this last year. I advise all users to check carefully. This defect is not obvious at casual inspection.
Back to Bridgestone for me.
