It's my opinion of your opinion, so it's just as valid as your opinion on Bridgestone tyres. Try and out-logic that.

All my yamis from 10 years had OEM Bridgestones and they were bad, that's my experience.

You simply could have said "I don't agree I like Bridgestone tires, with maybe arguments and
models" and I would have been delighted to talk, but no you said  my opinion is crap, closing
all discussion basically.

I'm not going to continue such childish games, I'll be on my way and play nice  :492: goodnight !

My experience has been completely different to yours. I've had Bridgestones on assorted bikes over the last 25 years and probably more, and not had any problems with them. The only ones I've had issues with have been Metz Tourance Next (I had not-Next Tourances on a Tiger 900 steamer with no problems) and a Conti one which I can't remember, I think it was a Conti tour. I used a fair number of different tyres on that Tiger 900 in the 100,000 miles I did on it, including assorted Bridgestones, and I've used Bridgestones on other Hinckley triples and a Hinckley 4.

Seeing as you said "Most Bridgestone tyres are crap" with no further details of models, reasons, etc, giving no sign of wanting a discussion but just making a closed statement, then this is very much the pot calling the kettle black.

I've been running Shinko 705's on my Tiger for 2yrs now & have done many freeway miles at 85mph for long periods in hot temps & also taken them offroad for gravel & light rock & stream crossings.
No complaints & the price is right!

Off-road tyres
Got chatting with a boy riding BMW's take on the Tiger800 yesterday at Lake Bala, this boy really did ride this bike on proper trails, he knew the Peak District BOAT's. His bike did have the battle scars to prove it.

Rarely see a big weighty bike with tyres capable of more than a gravel track, he'd previously had a Vstrom & KTM990, surprisingly he said the Vstrom was handy off-road with low C of G.

Current bikes Tiger800 XRx, Tiger Sport 1050, Ariel FH 650, Yam Serow 225.

tauzero and Djairouks - Are you guys 12 year olds ? If not then please stop acting like it.   :151:

Cut out this stupid bickering, you are ruining your credibility (and this topic), so your "opinion" is now worthless to other readers.

Thanks man, that's all I asked, good discussion, if you loved them that's great, unfortunately tire wise seems to me only continental are good, every time is change for something else I'm disappointed.

I kind of like the T31 though on my yami, but wet you have to be careful and only 8'000km and they are toast, so mixed feelings.

This all reminded me of a saying we have in my region, opinions are like buttholes, everyone got one  :008:, no
so discussion are good.

Am going to put Dunlop Trailmax Meridian on the Super Tenere soon.  Got a Trailmax on the rear and it's got about 6000 on it and it's nearly done.
