Well I am going on a week long trip down the Appalachians . I think we may do up to 2000 which would have my old BT023 bald so we changed it now.

Philosophically I don't believe adventure tires do anything for gravel and dirt. Maybe tk80's or heidenaurs are real things and if I was Alaska bound I would have Scouts. I have used my sport touring BT023 on dirt and sport like pavement with NO problem or seeming loss of anything. They have been delivering 20% more mileage then stock or Anakees

These were a set of T30's Revzilla $222 delivered (cheap)

So putting the spot on the rims heavy spot they balanced with a 1/4 oz rear and 1/2 ox front.

The old tires were not shot cupped a little up front and evenly warn rear not squared off.

The new tires turn in very easy and make the bike feel like a giant dirt bike again. The ride is smooth and seemed to track great

So far So Good may further review in a month after the trip

T30 is Bridgestone's update for their BT023. The T30 has been getting good reviews in the cycle mags. Under BS's new system of designation, T is for Touring.

Installed one on rear 2 months ago. Did not ride very much in the rain, but overall I like it as much as PR3, for about 50$ less. It now have 12,000 km, and I will install a new one next week.

My t30 rear is near to being replaced at only 6500 miles, it wore quicker than the bt023 it only got 8000 like every other tire i,ve tried.Didn,t notice any diference betwene the two,pavement only.Your tip elimanates the Anakee,don,t know what to try next, just something inexpensive.
