Changed out the stock tires off a Suzuki V-Strom 650 that I recently purchased which were almost 9 years old. These new tires feel great, confidence inspiring around corners and dirt roads. Have only clocked in 400 miles or so on the new tires but they feel good so far.

I put these on before a 1000 mile trip on my KLR650. I ride mostly county paved with chopped up paved/dirt backroads between them. Great grip and traction with little wear. Higher speed roads showed little vibration from the tread pattern. Overall excellent value and performance.
Excellent tire for my Adventure Touring V-Strom. Used them before and I will use them again in the future. Front tire lasted me 20 k miles. Rear tire lasted 10k miles for long trips with extra loads (2x22L side cases and one 45L top case).
I am impressed with the off-road ability considering the price point, on road road felt solid .
Took very little weight to balance, I'll buy these again.
Returned wrong size
The proseses went great
I have been riding these tires for 9000 miles so here is my evaluation.
I consider their durability as very good due to my harsh kind of riding.
Braking performance is very good although my VStrom comes with ABS.
Cornering is good. As good as my previous OEM Bridgestones.
My only complaint would be with high speed performance where the bike becomes unstable.
If you ride below triple digits these tires are very good.
I have used them a little bit for off-roading on smooth forest roads where they were capable enough without lowering air pressure.
Overall a good durable tire.
Good tires for the money. They have great traction on the street. Haven't rode much on the dirt yet and don't really plan on it.
Awesome tire. looks good and rides even better
Love this tire! Its great on and off the road also dose well in the rain as well. I will be buying this tire again in the future
I love this tire! It feels good on and off road, provides great traction, and looks great.

The 130 designates the tire's width in millimeters, measured in a straight line through the tire from one edge of the tire's tread to the other. The second number, 70, is a bit trickier to understand. This represents the aspect ratio between the tire's width and its height, or how tall a tire is in relationship to its width. Simply put, the higher this number is, the taller the tire will be. In this case, the tire is 70 percent as tall as its width.
The last number, 17, is the tire's rim diameter expressed in inches.
