    cant tell you about the tyres performance but I contacted Bridgestone's tech dept and had a good email conversion with their chap.Its always good to be able to actually talk to someone technical rather that the sales office!

    Even if they pay me that price i will not install Bridgestones on my bikes.
    They where fitted on my XTZ and they slided more on asphalt than the knobby Anakee Wild i run now. Glad i got rid of them even though they where not even halve way.
    My friend crashed his GSA without any reason on a small wet spot on a set of AX41, just lost his rear at low speed. I drove in front of him with Anakee Wilds on the Crosstourer at that moment.
    Cheap tyres can end up more costly.

    Had them installed at VFR800X as OEM tires, was really happy when changed them for Metzeler 01. If I was you, would look for different model.

    Looks like a blinding deal to me. I have had these on my CT since bought from Honda dealer used. They supplied these tyres new as part of the sale. Been very happy with them.

    when I talked to "Mr Bridgestone" he said dont buy the original spec ones  (listed in the handbook)-buy the ones listed in this deal. So I got a new front-to match the hardly worn rear .
    as mentioned its a VERY good price -wnder why?
