Battlax BT 23 vs Conti RA II's

Got over 1000 miles on the new BT 23's after taking off the well worn priceier Road Attack II. These tires are a lot less expensive and in my experience the better tire. I can run in the 90 mph range on extended highway trips without the wobbly feel I got from the Conti tires at this speed. I have ran several hours in the rain and so far they have been excellent. They are less twitchy in the curves as well. I ride the Blue Ridge Pway and love to hit the twisty roads that cross it. I also ride 2 up with gear.

I beleive you would be VERY hard pressed to find a better sport tourer tire than these and especially their prices. They stick like glue, great wet performance, and very good high speed stability ! My rear Conti got about 6k miles and the rear bt23 is allready at 5 and in better shape.

That is very good to hear. I have a set in the garage waiting to go on. I think they get high recommendations from all that use them.
