Has anyone tried the Bridgestone Battlecruise H50 on the superlow yet?
They claim much longer life. They are also $50 dearer than the genuine Scorcher 11's.

Need tyres shortly and its a two horse race due to unusual sizing on that model bike.
Other manufacturers make the size for front and rear but not as matched pairs and the sizes they do make they have told me are unsuitable for that bike due to weight and riding style.

Any feedback is welcomed.

Cheers!

Yep, very impressed. I had Michelin Commander IIs on for about five-years and liked them. I fancied a change.
The H50s are even better IMHO. The front tyre is much more profiled, so the bike leans much better and steering
is intuitive. They are a VERY smooth ride and yet feel more precise. They are even less sensitive to road surfaces
than the Michelins. I don't know about wear yet but grip and feel are exceptional - confidence inspiring. They also
mount and balance very precisely with barely any weights. Bridgestones' are still made in the one factory.
Highly recommended!
