    Battlax BT016 on an 1125R
    I've run several different tyre makes on my Buell including the Corsas fitted when the bike was new and though all were great when new, I did noticed a loss of handling and reasurance once they'd got down to half wear. I'm now close to the end with the Battlaxes and they simply haven't missed a beat. Nice to be still using the entire outer edge of a tyre this late in it's life and the few times I found myself comming in too hot on a wet bend , found the did exactly what Bridgestone said they would. My next choice of tyre is already made. I'm using them front and rear and seriously can't recomend them enough.

    Great Tire CBR1000rr
    Great street tire, i have used this tire in the rain/shin/and cold. I will have to say it does take a bit longer than most to warm up. But great feel i have about 4k on both the rear and front, Front is a little past halfway, rear needs to be changed , getting close to a slick. Mainly highway miles on these tires, but would definitely buy again.

    Great track day tyre
    I bought a set of these tyres to use on my track bike. I do ride quite aggressively on the track. I am so impressed with the traction provided by these tyres I am going to put a set on my Benelli R160 road bike. I have previously used Metzeler top of the range track rubber but the wear was unacceptable (one track day). The cost of the Metzelers also was a factor in trying to locate a different but solid performing tyre. I have done 2 track days on the BT016 so far and the rear is about 50% worn and the grip is sensational. When you combine this with the cost of them it is a very good value tyre with excellent performance.

    Good wear and grip.
    I have a KTM Super Duke that I commute on and ride the mountain roads on the weekend. Tire held up great and the center compound held up to daily commuting.

    great tire
    Hade the stock BT-015's on when I bought the bike, got about 2500 miles out of the rear, really unhappy with that. But I decided to give Bridgestone one more shot.

    The BT-016's was way batter, 5500-6000 out of the back tire & front is still good for about 1000 or so.

    I ride really hard in the canyons 100+, and quick on the gas off the lights. I'd buy this tire again.

    Great value. Great tire.
    These tires stick very well for street use and the tread life is very reasonable. Plus, they are cheap!
