Road 2CTs.

The rear 2CT on my '89 GSXR 750 lasted 6300 miles of mostly straight. The front has another 2000 left.

I recently changed the rear to a Bridgestone BT023, brand new tire, and it feels fantastic. I think I love the way it feels more than the Road 2, but I don't know how long it'll last.

Sure it was a Road 2CT? Not a Power 2CT?

i too just put a set of bt-023's on my SV650. i went and carved up the local mountain tonight and my mind was just blown at how well these tires stick, they put my old shinkos to absolute shame. I've had them for about 24 hours and put 150 miles on them, the last 50 of quite spirited riding too.

The rear BT023 has been amazing sofar. Turn in is so good, and the feeling is very linear and there's no surprises. No sudden drop, just so.. flat and confidencey. I might be putting a front on soon.
