Great fit on '88-'07 Ninja 250
I bought these as a replacement for the OEM Dunlops that came with the previous generation kawasaki ninja ex250's. I got mine 130/90/16 in the rear and 100/90/16 in the front, and they fit just fine. It's a very comfortable tire, and has really good grip for the twisties, and it seems like I can get a good amount of life out of them. Definitely a good all around tire, even for commuting.

Great tire for the Ninja 250
There really aren't that many tires available for the ninja250 so it was really either these or the Sport Demons. I chose the bridge stone because they had a little harder compound than the SDs and I am glad I went with this tire. I sold my bike with these tires on it and at the time of sale I was coming on 4k miles on the tires and they were still going strong. I am a pretty spirited rider and also ride on the track some and these are great tires for both! They did not wear quickly and they grip great. I would highly suggest these if you are looking for an alternative for the pirelli sport demon.

Great Tires for Klassic K biikes
If you want great grip and handeling for your Klassic K bike can't go wrong. I get about 10K miles on a front and 5K on the rear. As always YMMV

Great aggressive-commuting tire!
The tire arrived very quickly and was exactly what I expected. I have a few hundred miles of fast/aggressive commuting and weekend riding on it in the dry and wet. It has performed very well and I will replace it with the same when it is time. ( I have this on my 1985 Kawasaki zx600a not my xt350)

Good Tires for almost any situation
Bought a set of these puppies for my '79 cbx, so as far as their "at the limit ability" I'll probably never know but I can say they take long sweepers at 95-100 with no problems and I haven't ever managed to even get them close to slipping so buy with confidence. Only took 3 days from click to delivery!

great tire so far
does not follow the CA rain grooves, had Metzeler lasertec before and they were all over the place. Also seams to ride smoother. Do not have a lot of miles on them yet but hope the dual compound tire last longer.

These tires are sexy
I really love the look of these tires. They are great quality, what else can you expect from bridgestone? They look great, now if i could only get my bike on the road to ride them. Bring on spring. :)

Through prior personal experience I've seen that these tires perform well for the riding my bike will see, daily commuting and a few long trips on highways.
