After 2 sets of BT010'S I tried Perelli Diablo's. These did last for about 3500 miles including a flat out blast through France, Italy and Switzerland.By flat out I mean every day in excess of 160mph for as long as poss. I can only say the Bridgestones dont last as long and give much better grip. It might cost more to replace the tyres when they dont last as long but its better to replace the tyres than have to shell out for a fairing etc., coz the tyres let go! Back on Bridgestones BT012SS.
