Default Re: Bridgestone BT 023

I wanted to try them but they weren't available anywhere I could find. Considering my front BT021 lasted only 5600 miles, not sure 30% better is an appreciable difference. I was happy - in general - with the 021's handling (except in very wet the rear seemed a bit slick).

This time around I opted for Avon Storm Ultra 2's ... after a couple hundred miles they seem to be doing okay. In some reasonable corners yesterday the tires felt secure and responsive.

Front radius is a bit fast for the bike, rear is normal or even a bit slow -- so front will only use 80% of the tread and I expect lower life as a result. Seems like the front tire wants a wider rim. The BT021's 'fit' much better.
