First Impression of the Battle Wings
Hello GS rider
Here in Denmark, Scandinavia, it is now autumn, but still the weather allows motocycle riding. I primerly ride on-road, and my ridingstyle is sporty.
My 2005 R1200GS came originally with Michelin Anakee Tyres. After 15,633 km (We use the metric system here in Europe), and after a short testride on a pair of Metzler Tourance, I wanted to try the new Bridgestone BattleWing 501/501.
My impression after 1,500 km ride is absolutly positive. Compaired with the other tires I have tried, they have a better grip and contact feeling with the road. The stifness of the tyres allows a more sporty driving style, and the tyres are stabile both on dry and wet asphalt.
The biggest Europain motocycle magasin "German Motorrad" are also very satisfyed with the Battlewings.
