Same  :thumbsup I have had the 2 & 4 and presently running the 3's
Still got a bit of meat left so by the time they are worn out the 5's will be well and truly tested out

The company's webpage is mighty impressive.  They're huge!  I can't see any reason to try other tyres (although I have in the past used Metzellers and Conti Angels).  The V-Strom came with Bridgestones that seem to be wearing OK and perform OK, but the Strom isn't asked to do the work I expect from the ST.
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott
