    Recently spooned on a set of Bridgestone T32 GTs to the Versys.  The stock T31s only lasted 4400 miles.  Hopefully, these GTs will go a little further than the stock tires.

    I'll probably do the same next spring.

    Love to try Road Pilot 5's but they are over a $100 more a set.
    I guess if they last a lot longer it would be worth it though.

    I have done the PR5  twice now, on my second set and they need to replaced in the Spring these have about 9500 km on them = 6000miles ...
    Thing is.. they work well overall and i do some touring two up so that in my mind justifies the second set .

    The T32  GTcould be a great tire and worth trying out at $100 less , I may go that way just to see if i spent the extra wisely  :039: 
    Tires are pretty subjective and what works for some do not for others .

    Just returned from a short 50 mile ride on the new T32 GTs.  Very few things are better than new tires on a bike!  Turn in is, of course, much better now since the new tires aren't squared off like the worn out stockers. The GT front is a little stiff; I can feel the road imperfections a lot more than with the stock T31 front.  The T32s stick like glue; no slippage on my spirited ride through some of the twisty back roads.  Now, let's hope the T32s last a little longer than the stock T31s.  If not, I'll spoon on a set of S22s that I have reserved for the ZRX and gi for grip and not mileage. :756:
