    T32GT Report

    Thought to give some info on a set of T32 GT Bridgestone tires that I have on my 2015 Versys .
    The rear is almost down to the wear bars and the front is close as well at 9900 km / 6151 miles
    38 PSI front 43 rear...
    The tires have performed very well ,great in the wet and dry ..great feedback in the corners and never any indication of movement when well heeled over .
    Hot weather riding for the most part , some two up with gear and a lot of continuous 120 to 140kph  slab riding on the way to the corners .
    I will buy them again .
    Cheers

    Great to hear.

    I have just put them on my bike, chose them over the Michelin 6. I was pretty happy the the T31's that came with the bike, plus they were about $50 cheaper than the Michelin's

    I had used the PR5 GT on the bike previously , they were a good tire but i did find they went off ( spongey feeling and the front cupped ) when they were getting on in life. The tire life was not as good as the T32GT as well .
    Price was about $150.00 higher than the T32GT here in Canada as well.

    Keener, thanks for your recent experience with Bridgestone tires. I will go with T32 for sure when my current tires will need replacement. Thanks!!

    The guy at Kawasaki gave me the option of both, had both in stock but recommended the Bridgestone over the Michelin on the Versys. He seemed to feel that the Bridgstone lasted longer and was more suited on the touring bikes. I found the Micheline was great on my sports bikes, but just didnt last long.

    After the original set of T31 and 1 set of T32, I started to but Road Smart series on the Big V. I thought T32 were good  :whistle:

    Last pair of RS IV are as performing as the the set of RS III, just a bit noisier.

    Michelin are out for me. PR4 ona V-Strom were horrible and got them change after two weeks of riding. On my wife's Tracer 700, PR4 were as precise as a donkey in curvy roads. Lest say they will keep their PR5 on the shelves.

    So finally got out on the bike to put some good km's on it over two days (975km). The tire's feel really good also seemed to take away the high speed weave that my bike had when I was pushing it through fast long sweeping corners. It feels a lot more stable.

    Got another big ride in a few weeks so hopefully will test a little more.

    Regards

    Just removed the original Bridgestones from my 21 bike at 6310 miles, could have done a bit more but I have a pair of Angel GT with the 190 rear now fitted, had them in “stock” in my loft.

    So far so good, I had similar on my Ducati and thought they were good so thought I would try the same again.

    I got 6100 out of both my stock tires on the Versys. I thought that sucked after getting 8K(rear) and 12K(front) on my Super Tenere.
    Both bikes were ridden exactly the same way. I hope the Michelin Road 6's I got will do better.
