Quick Review: Bridgestone Battleax BT016 Tires

April 29, 2010

The one line review of my new tires is: Going in a straight line is boring. Okay, maybe not boring, but extremely unfulfilling.

The longer, but still short, review: The new tires make me want to hit the corners, because they are so responsive. The ride to work this morning was immediately and notably smoother than on my hardened, fifteen-year-old tires. I’ll be excited to test my Battleaxes this weekend when I head down to Santa Rosa BMW’s Open House and Swap Meet in Windsor, Ca.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. It is wonderful to find other women riding motorcycles – the encouragement is fantastic! I will definitely be a regular reader here so I can learn from your experience!
    Have a wonder-filled day,

      Pam, I completely agree with you on the encouragement factor. I appreciate your blog and am enjoying reading about your process as you take steps to become a motorcyclist.

      Thanks, Chris. I meant to email you in answer to your question about the tires (weeks ago), but I have gotten very busy. Big congrats to your wife on her new bike! (I’ll stop by your blog and comment there when I get a chance.) I’m looking forward to hearing more!
