Fantastic tyre and the best ive used yet on the road. Im quite fanatical when it comes to tyres only because im a knee down junkie and i dont ride for the "open elements taking in the scenery" so i really do need a tyre that sticks....the Bridgestone S20 is that tyre for my 2007 Fireblade!! It allows for quick turning in and allows the bike to be picked up out of the corner with the throttle ever increasing loading up the rear tyre, which handles more than capably the power input to the rear tyre once the throttle is fully opened.
