Amazing wear! I put a Battlewing front on my DL650 Vstrom 15,000 miles ago. They show zero cupping and minimal wear. My riding is mostly 2 lane pavement carrying crash bar panniers and tank bag. If I didn't know how many miles were on them, I'd keep them on for my Newfy trip this summer. The Anakee 3 I replaced it with was done at 10k miles. I will replace this tire before heading north. The $110. is worth the peace of mind and I will have gotten more mileage out of them than any tire in the past. The miles I put on before July I will consider a bonus. I suspect the tire could last another 5k miles before hitting the wear bars. (I don't normally write reviews.) December 13, 2014
Great tire This is my second run on this tire and the first one has held up great. And believe me when I say that I push my tires to their limit ;) The only thing I think is BS is the whole 'slick the first couple miles' thing. All motorcycle tires have though that and nowadays I think this is just because the customer likes to see shiny... Well sorry but not me, I rather have safe... But again, that is not just this tire but that's in general. November 24, 2014
Great Tires I have run many tires on my 2007 DL650 and by far these have been the best value. I am getting 9500-10,000 miles per set. I do not use these off-road as i don't consider the DL a dirt bike but a light touring road bike. November 11, 2014
Good tire, fair price Good 90/10 tire for large dual sport/adventure touring bikes. I have been getting about 10k on a set. Good traction in the wet, but they get a little squirrelly when completely leaned over (dry or wet). On gravel roads they are fine. I have not had any experience in mud or sand. October 15, 2014
great buy! Excellent traction Awesome buy, great traction, in wet or dry terrain. oe tire on my tenere,got 10000 miles on them. June 30, 2014
Excellent all around tire for my Super Tenere These were original equipment on my '12 Tenere and lasted over 13K miles. I've got Tourances now but bought these to replace them. The Battlewing provides excellent all weather traction for the pavement while giving me good stability on dirt and gravel roads. May 12, 2014
Excellent tire for the price, great street tire for Big Traillies! Excellent tire for the price, great street tire for Big Traillies! January 27, 2014
excellent value, some bumps across the tire when aging 2009 R1200GS Adventure I liked this tire, do not treat it as a sporty tour tire I rode about 17k miles with it and it was really good Some anecdote to share is riding across a bridge in the highway with strong wing, the heavy R12Adv did change to the left lane (this happened to me 3-4 times), not sure if its due to low grip but it hasn't happened to me again with the conti trail attacks. Cons: uneven aging, some little bumps form across the tread (hypothesis: due to R12GSA suspension whose first section of travel is always moving and jumping) went out with 1 day riding of 400 miles but did look weird. In the last stage it did tend to puncture more and some little holes like if made with a needle made it loose pressure, that's when I decided to replace the tire, even 10-20% of tread pattern was still there. Very homogeneous aging of tread (I tend to wear front tires more through sides than center) Good balance between durability, on road traction and fire-road riding. Excellent bang for the buck!

Fred B: Felt it was the best tire for my riding style. Apr 25, 2015
David M: "Great tire, lasts long (17K miles on my R1200GSA) even wear, value for money (one of the cheapest compatible for my bike) bad points: it puntures a lot compared to the Conti Trail Attack (maybe its coincidence). " Dec 8, 2014
G R: Have ~ 8000 on current BattleWings on my super tenere with 3/32's left on front and rear. Only replacing them because I have a 4000 mile road trip coming up and don't want to stop to replace tires. Its good on road, and been acceptable on gravel and dirt roads while fully loaded. Good 90/10 tire in my opinion. Jul 15, 2014
Richard S: A great tire, wears well and plenty of traction on road and on dry dirt and gravel. Jul 6, 2014
