Comments about Bridgestone Battlax BT023 Motorcycle Tire:
I only have about 1000 miles on the tire (BT023) so far but it seems to be great, I expect no less from Bridgestone. I eagerly awaited the release of the BT023 after talking with Bridgestone directly about how the BT021 did not have the wet weather traction of the BT020. I'm an everyday Florida Rider, I own no cages and it rains down here frequently. The BT023 is to provide the wet weather (stunning) traction of the BT020 with the improved mileage offered by the BT021's (the BT020's are no slouch mileage wise either). If I find out that they've missed the mark I'll update my review but I'd bet against it. It won't take long as I use them on my 02 Kawasaki ZRX1200R (Great Bike!!!) daily. The reason I'm writing this report however is to give kudo's to Bike Bandit[...]They beat other advertised prices by as much as almost $100 for a company that was charging full retail[...]they'll never do business with me again. My Bike isn't a toy even though I love to Ride it, it's my wheels[...]
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

great tire for sport touring bike
from northeastern PA
i have a 09 bandit 1250s and the factory dunlap(excellent tire, but not for me)lasted 1400 miles.most of my riding is commuting but i do like to carve it up a bit.the bridgestone i put on only has a couple hundred miles on it so far, but had more thread on it than the dunlap did new, and seems to be wearing good so far.i would recommend this tire to someone looking to ride a sportbike more than race it.the tire has excellent wet traction and a good ride.i would also recommend bikebandit to supply you with your bike needs. i have dealt with them before and their prices [...] cannot be beat. thank you bikebandit!

from Cleveland, OH
I put this tire on and then took a trip from Cleveland to Atlanta spending most of the week in the TN/NC border area on the Dragon's Tail and associated roads. I've put about 3,000 miles on this tire varying from scraping pegs to highway cruising and it has performed well. The tire wear is phenomenal so far. Based on what I've seen I expect to easily get 8K - 10K miles from it. Much better than the 3K I was getting on my Qualifiers.

Put on a new set of these bridgstones and was very suprised at how much better they are than the last set of of the BT021's that I ran before changing to pirelli diablo strada's. I think the BT023 are even better than the pirelli's. The bridgstones are very good in the corners and grip good under hard braking as well. Also, I am suprised at how well the tires grip when crossing over a patch of loose gravel, or running a strech of dirt road for a bit, or hitting a curve that normally has some stones. I can be confident to still lean the bike, when other tires can feel like ridding on marbles. I havent had a chance to try them in really wet conditions yet, but I just clicked 1000 on them and I am impressed so far with the performance of these tires.
