Just done a reasonably good deal on a pair...@ 189 delivered...will be interesting to see if any of the bollocks stack up....

Anyone else have any experience (good or bad) with THIS tyre ??

roadsmarts are one of the best sport touring tires out there. The road 2's and bt016's are also very good

there are two of us, i have qualifiers on, they seem alright, they are good once warmed up, i did prefer the rennsports that came from the factory but i'm not sure what the rennsports are like in the rain, the qualifiers have more treads in them

ps i have a mate with an 06 T who is uncathchable on a twisty road and he swears by the qualifiers; ie plenty of warning when slipsy starts

Sportsmax Quali's are excellent tyres imho, these are just an updated version eh?. Good grip in ALL conditions. 3500 miles and still life in the rear even with 'spirited' riding.

Half the battle with tyres is in the mind. I had a few scarey moments when on Dunlops some years back so don't use them anymore, bit unfair on the tyre maybe because it could just have been my fault or the road conditions but when you're in to three figures on the clock on damp roads you don't want to be thinking **wonder if these tyres will grip**

Nobist and lot's of other riders seem to like them, me, I'm a Bridgestone fan me sen....:worship:

Thought I'd give you a mention there Nobist so you'll feel like one of the AF1family....:p:

Cheers Windy lad. I feel loved and honoured. Gotta say though I lurvs me Bridgstones too. What them Bt010 ers called now ?
Mmmm, never liked Pirellis but this Dragon's taking some stick and surviving well. Never had so much snot on the sides of me tyres so I must getting it over a fair bit more than usual, OR is it the Tuono confidence effect ?.
Nah, Dunlops next.
