p6x Posted March 2 Report Share Posted March 2 5 hours ago, docc said: I have switched from my long-loved Pirelli to Battlax tires the last few changes and "like" the T32 very much. I say "like" because motorcycle tire preferences are so much like music and ladies. It's a good thing we don't all "like" the same thing! If I was suspicious, and I am not , why would Bridgestone order a third party evaluation between their main competitors? UTAC does not specify how/who provided the tires. Did Bridgestones supply the tires to UTAC? shall we trust that Bridgestones picked random tires for every brand? I am surprised at the somewhat subdued performance of the Road 5 CT2 in the rain when Michelin has two patents on the new sculpting and design of the Road series for just that.... Obviously, the data of the test seems to indicate they are not as effective than the Battlax. But my experience in heavy rains and poodles and water does not match what the tester seem to allude to: hydroplaning? I think I am going to send an email to Bruno Destoop. Also, no matter how hard I pull on the lever, the ABS never engages on my V11!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
