I would imagine that the rear is the:
Bridgestone TW152 Trail Wing Dual Sport Rear Tire
150/70VR-17 or are they 150/70R-17

& the front is:
Bridgestone TW101 Trail Wing Dual Sport Front Tire
110/80VR-19 or are they 110/80R-19

What is the difference between r & vr?

thx

How many miles did you put on that rear tire?
I'm just short of 12,000 km or 7,200 miles. I ordered the tire today but I would not be able to get it installed until the first Monday in June so I'll probably have another 2,000 km (1200 miles) by then. The original stock tire on my 2006 was replaced at about 16,000 km or 10,000 miles so it looks like I'll be a little short of that. My 2012 has seen much harder riding than my 2006 did when it was new. I run about 42 psi in it like I did on my Tourance's. (Which typically gave me 19,000 to 21,000 km for the rear.)

does the 'max load' include the weight of the bike as well? Or is that the load that can be added on top of the bike?

Logic would dictate that a max load on a tire would be the total the tire is designed to handle since it doesn't know on which bike it will be mounted.

I have had good luck with my traiblazers, currently over 20000 miles on first set
WOW, that is impressive! My Anakee3's have around 10K and are completely squared off. Just received some TKC-70's to try out. If they don't fit the bill I'll try PR4's.

Where did you see the VR?

59V is the load index and speed rating for these tires on an '03 R1150GS, but will work fine on a strom. 59H is the strom spec.
TRAILWING (Non Popular Size) | Products | Motorcycle Tires | Bridgestone Corporation

Anyway, there are better tires out there. Bridgestone's new A40 is one good possibility.
http://www.bridgestone.com/products/motorcycle_tires/products/battlax/a40.html

Certain makes and models of motorcycle tires have the designation ZR. This indicates a zero degree radial belt. Michelin's description: "Michelin® BAZ Technology™ uses spiral-wrapped nylon strips applied in the tread area atop the steel belts at zero degrees. BAZ Technology™ opposes centripetal forces that can cause tire distortion at high speeds1. BAZ Technology™ optimizes high-speed handling and durability."

i am over 22,000 miles, getting close to changing tires
WTF, how do get 22K miles on a pair of tyres?
My back tyre has just clicked over 10K kilometres and it's finished.
Less than 1mm to wear indicators and squared off after 1 5K trip and 2 1K weekenders, with the remainder just fart assing around.

I can't see even 15k miles possible on a tire and don't think it's safe to be riding around on that. I'm pretty sure you now have racing slicks.

Went to purchase a new front tire last week and looked at the OEM tire. The book says DL650 2004-2013 is 110/80R19BW TL TW101J (Part 300580), which is discontinued. I was told that Bridgestone recommends a Bridgestone A40. I ended up ordering a 110/80R19 TW101 (Part 300570), which is for the DL650 2014.

Barry's Tire Tech

The link above describes auto original equipment tires. It appears some motorcycle tires are the same way--unique tires even when the same make and model are in the tire maker's catalog.
