    Default First ride on new Bridgestone BT016

    Put new skins on the bike and the first initial ride they feel really good. I am looking forward to putting them through the paces on the WSL and the track to see what they are really made of. It was a suggestion of a friend and I didn't have much luck with the last set of Michelins and these tires get very high ratings so figured it was time to switch. Based on motogp technology with 2 compound front and 3 compound rear. Pretty amazing all the technology built into a tire:

    Love the "FIST" pic! I went for a ride one day over to Belle Isle and thought about taking that pic with my bike, but chickened out. Took one under the Tiger at Comerica Park instead.

    Yes I was running Pilot Powers before and in the near future (for reasons yet to be released) Dunlop qualifiers which I hopefully can switch out to BT016s again. The truth shall reveal itself in due time. There is a lot of red ass involved and some hurt feelings. I went and took the picture on Easter Sunday so it was easy to get the fist picture. Otherwise might be difficult. But remember the Detroit cops are really not going to give a shit if you snap a quick picture.
