Nuthin Like New Skins

Just installed another new set of Bridgestone S-21's. Got 3800 miles out of the last set and I ride pretty hard.

Man I love these tires. After running many other brands I think these have become my favorite. Plus they are the most affordable to boot. Definitely a win win.

They track like on rails and with great feedback. I never feel them squirm or follow imperfections in the road. Just like a Boy Scout they are always strait and true.

Plus from time to time Bridgestone offers rebates of $20 to $25 per tire. My last set was a combo special from Dennis Kirk at $220 delivered, minus the $40 rebate for a grand total of just a buck 80. You would pay that for just a rear on many brands.

Praise the Lord and pass the biscuits. One happy camper here.

Just checked with Rocky Mountain ATV. Current price for a set is $182. Free shipping and no tax. That's a hell of a deal. Man if the rebate was still going the price would be $142 for the pair. My hair is on fire!!!

Good mileage from a sport bike street/track day tire.

I ran PR 3's and 4's on my FZ09. I could burn off the rear in about 1500 to 1800 miles.

Of course my Versys has only about half the horse power but I am pretty happy getting 3800 miles.
