    i had Battlax's on my Busa they wore out too quick imho....i move to Michelin Pilot Road 2's they are a dual compound tire so basically you could get double the mileage out of them...if you want a sticky tire you need to stay with a single compound tire

    I concur with the Pilot Road 2s...Hard center compound for commuting/normal riding and stickier outside edges for better twisty performance.
    I LOVE Bridgestone tires-but I had the same problem with the Battlaxs..Wore down quick. I do use Bridgestone BT-00X (I guess they will be 003s) for the track when I go.

    I've had the Battleaxes for a year now, and love them. Very grippy, and confidence inspiring. i think you'll be happy with your purchase.
