I don't have them on a V-Strom, but my Fazer 8 is currently Running a T30 on the rear, and a T30 EVO (increased wet grip, supposedly) on the front.
I haven't done a lot of riding in the wet in them, and the roads around here are typically as greasy as goose shit when it rains, so I can't say much about their wet grip (i.e. I don't push very hard in the wet).
The rear has worn really nice and evenly, and provides excellent grip IMO. I've managed to spin it up now and then on a corner exit, but only when using heavy throttle on slightly slippery surfaces (like polished pavement). Totally predictable.
I know some people think Bridgestones are crap, but I've had good experience with their sport-touring tires. Used to run the BT-020s on my ZRX back in the early 2,000s, and they worked nicely, too.
