I use these on my 2006 V-Strom 650. The original Bridgestone Trailwing was good, lasting 12,000 miles. The Battlewing has lasted close to 16,000 miles on the front, and slightly over 10,000 miles on the rear. They have excellent all weather traction and long life. I ride 100% street, all weather, all year. South Texas so I don't see any snow or ice, but plenty rain and plenty heat.
