Re: New Bridgestone T31 Tyres

Well I've had the T30s on the last bike - S1000 XR - and the current bike - a K13S - and they tick the boxes for me - good grip in the wet, predictable handle and decent tyre life.

So if the T31 is a step up then they stand every chance of being my next set.

Re: New Bridgestone T31 Tyres

I've just bought a set of T31 GT spec for the K1300. I haven't had them fitted yet so I can't report on them. Was running S21's. A great tyre but only getting 4500km out of them. I'm only going to use the K for 2 up riding from now on so I figure that I won't be riding as spirited anymore.
Hopefully they live up to all the hype. Will post once I've done a few runs.
