thanks. do you know the difference between the s20 and s20 evo?The Dunlop Q3s just won motorcycle USA's tire test
I personally prefer the Bridgestone S20s, I think they offer equal grip as the Q3 with more front tire feel.
Hearing very good things about the Bridgestone RS10s except that they wear really fast.
Note that all 3 of these tires wear out fast. You can lengthen the life by increasing your tire pressures when you know your only going to be cruising around town. But expect quite possibly less than 3000 miles on these types of tires. The good thing is with the rebates, they are fairly cheap and can usually be found for around $200 except for the RS10s which are a little more expensive.
As I interpreted bridge stones explanation on their website, the tire does a little better on tire wear. I assume this is at the cost of grip so I have not tried it yet. But Bridgestone says it improves in all areas except wet road performance. We'll see I guess.thanks. do you know the difference between the s20 and s20 evo?
I wish that they used a professional rider instead of Adam for that test. Some of the tires required more adaptation than others, requiring a little longer time to get the most out of them, which I think skewed the results a little, but still not bad.thanks for the video!

How much life do you get out of PP3s?
yeah i would really appreciate it if you translated it! thanks. Also thanks for your personal data. gives me a better perspective!The image posted earlier (I believe) is millage statistics with tread depth. I can annotate the image with English translations if you like.
My personal data:
I have 1,000 miles and 1 track day on mine. I still have consistent 4.5 mm before I get to the wear indicator. I can't imagine I started with more than 5.5 mm anyone with new q3's can tell for sure.
My bike won't be on the streets again, at least not in the foreseeable future. So I won't have real road numbers, and intend to use them aggressively.
For the street miles on it:
Almost all commuting, with ~300 miles in the mountains.
I'm fairly slow. No knee dragging occurred.
I would expect that the way I ride on the streets I could get 3,500-4,000 maybe more out of a set.
