Bridgestone's Spitfire S11 is for touring-oriented riders who also enjoy a sporty ride. The 4-ply casing, incorporating insert plies, and a refined belt technology helps keep the tire round and cool even at top speeds. This bias-ply, general purpose replacement tire for large late model cruisers as well as bikes from the 1970's and 1980's.

Comments about Bridgestone Spitfire S11 Motorcycle Tire:
I just put my second one of these on my 1980 Goldwing. I got 9500 miles out of the first one. When I used Dunlop before the Spitfire, I was lucky to get 3000 miles before I had to replace it. I didn't change my driving style to try and get longer life out of it either. The 9500 miles included a 3000 mile trip from Iowa to North Carolina and pulling a trailer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

good choice for the money
from Green Bay, WI
I like this tire alot. I installed it on the front just before a Labor Day camping/tour ride. The tread looks good, plenty of rubber. I was impressed with it right out of the box. I rode into Northen Wisconsin where there are many twisty, hilly county highways curving around numerous lakes, thru small towns. The first 50 miles, I took it easy-no problems at all. Bike was very stable. Then I ran a 50 mile stretch of 4 lane with a 65 mph speed limit, so I throttled the bike up to 65. Still smooth a greased glass. No shimmy or shakes or any frontend movement. When I got into the narrow, 2 lane roads, I progressively leaned further over in the curves and picked up the speed a little each curve, being cautious with the new tire but wanting to see how it would handle. It held perfectly, no problems, at all. I eventually pushed my big touring bike (850# dry, but loaded with tent, sleeping bag and camp gear + me at 200 pounds, likely 1200 total pounds) into the curves as fast as I am comfortable and had NO tire problems. It tracked perfectly, held like on a rail. I put on about 600 miles on that trip and now about another 600 since. Although only 1200 or 1300 miles so far, tire shows NO wear. I am still very pleased. It seems like an excellent tire for the money-a great value.[...]
