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!

Confident I get my first bite 2001 BMW F650GS with Metzeler Tourance on. I find the tires already having ganwen. But I still keep riding for 3,000 miles due to the tight budget. They still give me confidence in leaning and cornering. Because the rain season is coming and decide to change this new pair BW 501 and 502 (front and rear). After running for 100 miles, they definitely show me they are more accurate in leaning. No regret to use this excellent brand January 11, 2014
Good performance and high mileage This is my second set of Bridgestone Battlewings. I'm pleased with how they handle in the twisties and the mileage is really good. I changed my first set at around 10,000 miles. With this set I replaced the rear at 11K and the front is at 12K and still hasn't hit the wear bars. A good return on my money as far as I am concerned.

Good grip all-around Grippier than the trailwing it replaced under all street conditions. It does fine on hard dirt for what it is. The only slippage I've felt was on algae covered stone 6" under the river, then again my feet couldn't grip it either. Seems to grip better than the battlewing I have mounted on rear. Running stock pressure 35/41 on a DL1000K4. June 25, 2013
Would and did buy again! I use these tires on my Yamaha Super Tenere and I ride all year. I was able to put 10000 miles in a year and a half, mostly suburban street, city and highway driving. I ride 90-100 regularly on the highways and these tires held up very well. I lean pretty aggressively when ever possible figure there is tread on the sides I try to use it. I did develop a flat center when I reached around 10000, even though they still have plenty of traction left it changed the handling characteristics enough I am replacing them. June 16, 2013
Great handling and longevity I got 20,000 miles out of the BattleWing front tire on my 1200GS. It handles beautifully on the road and gets by off road. June 11, 2013
Great tire for the money Bought the Bridgestone BattleWing to replace the factory Bridgestone TrailWing; great tire for the dollar! Only put a few hundred miles on them so far, but the tracking, wet road handling and loss of front end wobble is a major improvement over the TrailWing. On a 2012 DL1000 Adventure. May 13, 2013
