Pirelli Angel ST rated 83% while driving a Suzuki Bandit 1250 SA
Driving on mostly country roads for 5800 spirited miles
I ride the Adelaide Hills on a Suzuki Bandit 1250, a rather heavy sports tourer. My riding style is brisk, but nearly always legal. My priorities are overall stability, light and neutral steering (meaning that no effort is needed to maintain a line through a corner), long life, and of course, price. With the Angel STs, I think I made an excellent choice. The dry grip is very good (no slides or surprises) but then again, I do not ride like a Casey Stoner wannabe. I cannot comment on wet grip because I try hard to avoid rain and on the rare occasion I do get caught on wet roads, I ride like Casey's grandmother. Both front and rear need replacing after approximately 9000km which is a bit less than I had hoped for, but it is a heavy bike. When I first got them new, I was very impressed by how light and precise the steering became, like the bike lost 50 Kg instantly. When new(ish), the Angel STs track corners effortlessly and do not stand up if front brakes are applied while leaned over. The degree of wear is about the same front and rear, but the treads has retained their shape even after 9000+ kms, so the steering is still quite good, although they're a bit reluctant on initial turn-in when compared to new. Nevertheless, they perform much better than the Dunlop Roadsmarts they replaced, which were nearly unrideable at their wear limit. Stability has never suffered regardless of wear and they deal with bumpy roads pretty well, comfort- and grip-wise, which is good because we have a lot of crap roads. The Angel STs really suit the Bandit 1250. If the price is right, I would buy them again.

Dunlop ScootSmart rated 41% while driving a
Driving on mostly town for 15000 easy going miles
I bought a pair years ago, despite mediocre reviews. They instantly felt slippery on various surfaces and conditions, especially in curves. Totally plastic in cold weather and dangerous on wet.
Still, considering the fact I'm just a commuter, I didn't take my opinion too seriously.
Recently I bought just the rear one because they had it in stock. It is even worse!
Nobody should waste their money on this dangerous piece od plastic.

Bridgestone BATTLAX SPORT TOURING T30 rated 71% while driving a Honda CB900F Hornet
Driving on mostly country roads for 4700 average miles
These were on the bike when I bought it and were almost new. No major issues in wet or dry, steering a little slow and steady, very stable on brakes. Reasonable mileage - rear worn to TWI bar, front would still have gone further but was losing shape. Replaced with T32's

Metzeler Roadtec 01 SE rated 64% while driving a Ducati Multistrada 1200
Driving on mostly motorways for 6500 spirited miles
Fitted brand new Roadtec on my Miltistrada 1200s. Handling on dry was just perfect, sharp corners, fast coreners, feedback from the road just perfect. But, terrible grip on wet or dusty or any other non-pure-tarmac road. Lasted for about 10k km, with agressive style, 180km/h speeds, wheelie etc. But than, having around 1mm yet to wear started to get wholes in tyre from any small piece of stone on road. Had 4 wholes during my last trip in mountains, and had to swap imeediately in the middle of nowhere.
Overall nice tyre, for perfect roads only. Wouldn't sugest for those who plan to have long trips.

Michelin Pilot Road 4 rated 76% while driving a Yamaha YZF 600r
Driving on mostly country roads for 8000 average miles
Pilot Road 4 know to wiggle and slip somethimes before and in the corner on 10-20 degree lean angle or,when you cross the road white line and similar situations and this is something that you must accept and adapt. Wet grip and dry grip is decent but,on trackday if you are slow or medium slow driver,anything faster above that will cause rear wheel to slip. Response is okay,they biggest advantage is longevity and its good for touring and commuting. You can enjoy in the curves but easy on the throttle. Someting i notice is that they wear nice and gradualy from 100% to 30% and they can run for about 12.000km like that, after they reach 30% of tread they wear faster so i think they maximum is about 14.000km. The price is pretty high so i dont recommend it just beacause,there are similar tires with identical characteristic that are cheaper. I ride my motorcycle in Europe where climate is not harsh,mostly during summer and i tryed this tyres in all situations,they said Road 4 is multi purpose tire,i said " For casualy riding,touring and commuting,not so sporty" One more thing,on hot summer day like 30degree outside this tires know to slip when you accelerate,not always but somethimes when you want to lauch the rocket on the straight line,you know what i mean and this dissapoints me a little bit. If the touring and longevity is important to you then consider this tire.

Bridgestone Exedra Max rated 87% while driving a Honda 1.6 I DTEC
Driving on a combination of roads for 11000 average miles
18,000 km so far on current set and still more than 4mm depth of tread remaining. The only reason that I am replacing this set now is that I have an upcoming trip of around 4,500-5,000km and I would most likely need to replace on the road (at a much higher cost than my local supplier).

Bridgestone Battlax BT 023 rated 74% while driving a Yamaha Aprilia rsv4 factory
Driving on mostly motorways for 10500 average miles
These tires came fitted as standard on my Yamaha FJR. I noted in 2023 these tires are not the latest in technology but nevertheless quite impressed with it. I frequently use the bike on commutes of up to 200km a day and most of that commute on a highway. Even when the weather gets rough, it has proven to be a capable tire. Took it on several long tours and after about 12,000km, it started to become more wobbly. Especially bad when you have one hand on the wheel. It would regain its composure after having 2 hands on the handle.

After 10 months, 16,837km, later the rear tires were well worn to the point I can see wires. This is not bad considering it is not a GT spec. I felt it was more wobbly than ever just before the end of its life. I decided to replace them with Michelin Road 6 GTs. Boy, those are a whole new level. Initial impressions were it felt stickier in corners and more keen to carve corners.

Overall, I rated the Bridgestones highly but knowing T32s are out there, my money would be going to the T32s over BT023.

Michelin City Grip 2 rated 83% while driving a Yamaha Aprilia rsv4 factory
Driving on for 12000 miles
So , its third time when im replaying tyre
First set of stock tyres was awful, I replaced them with city grip 2 after a month .
So tyres in front made around 13k miles , front of tricity is quite heavy due to suspension so they wear out quicker
Rear around 17k

Im daily driving with 30kg of tools so this may have a small impact but maybe 10% more.

They need 5min to warm up to be super sticky,
In wet its good not great, i can only comare them with stock ..
