Replaced the OEM Pirelli's on a Tiger 800 ABS. Much better handling and feel in my opinion. Never could get comfortable with the Pirelli's and they were slick in the wet. The A41's are smooth, sticky, and handling is light and predictable...bike doesn't feel like it starts falling midway thru a curve. They seem to do well with a light off-pavement use and did fine with one wide creek crossing. Probably don't want to tackle greasy mud with these though. Unsure of the mileage as I've only put a 1,000 miles on them to date but look good so far. Plus the pair was almost a $100 cheaper than a set of Metzeler Tourance Nexts. If they wear well, will probably be my go to tire for the Triumph.
I have only used the tire on asphalt so far and very neutral feeling right away, lots of confidence from day one, ecen on wet road it gave me a safety feeling, I hope longevity is good, so far I recommend it.
This is the new benchmark for big adv bikes used primarily on road, best grip, stability and wet performance in the category, another step forward from the scorpion trail 2 and the tourance next.
There have been no questions asked about the Bridgestone Battlax Adventure A41 Rear Tire.
