Bridgestone S22

Finally fitted a set, coming from Dunlop Q3.
After 500km road and 400km track I couldn’t be happier.
Fast to heat up and once off the centre they are very, very sticky.
When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. - HST

I used to run sport tires exclusively on all my bikes but got tired of the short life span of the tires. Mostly Q3's and S21's. I'm sure the s22 are an excellent handling tire too, since they just seem to get better with each newer version. Unfortunately, I was only getting 1800 miles or less on a set of tires before they were toast. For the past two sets of tires on my 990SDR and 990SMT, I have been running Dunlop Roadsmart III. I'm really impressed with the handling and tire wear. I can run them just as hard as a full sport tire and I have been able to get well over 3k miles so far on each set. Of course, for track use I would probably go with a sport tire, but I don't do much track riding these days. Glad to not be in the "tire a month" club anymore.
