Gl1200 what tyres???

Post by banditman87 » Sun May 26, 2013 9:00 am

Ho guys

Cant find much in forum so lets discuss

My 12 is fitted with bridgestone excedra g703's. there a few year old and yesterday my rear developed a bump/lump!

These tyres seem good, handle well in the dry, at speed too. Never leaned much in the wet but u've not dropped it so id assume there ok lol

Just looking for experiences to see what tyres you've tried n tested or are the excedras pretty much top notch?

Tires are like oil every one has their own opinion. I myself dislike the Dunlop and continental. I like the Pirelli (route 66) and Michelin (commander II). Sorry never tried the Bridgestone.
Enjoy the ride. They are all good, just some better than others.

When I got my Goldwing on the road I went with Dunlop E3's. I got 20,000 miles out of them and put on another set at the beginning of this year. Never a problem! I ride about 10,000 miles a year so I can say they are durable.
