Sadly, the well rated Battle Axe BT-023 Bridgestone tires are unavailable in our size so far.
My K1600GT came with Battle Axe Bridgestone tires. I have about 3500 miles on them and I love the twisties but ride west about 60 miles to get there. They seem to be wearing evenly. I thought I would try the PR3s next. I have kept the air pressure at 42 or slightly higher and the front has no scalap to the feel.

My K16GT was delivered with Bridgestones. The Front tire is defective. Has a vibration @60 mph. My dealer ordered a new one the 2nd of JULY. It turns out the Stones are Not Available. They ordererd me a set of Metzelers, Still waiting. As for Avon Tyres, I had a set on a K1200LT. They lasted less than 5000 miles. Yes, I ran them with the correct tire pressure.
American Motorcycle Tire in Scottsdale, AZ. has good prices!

My GTL cam with a Bridgestone on the rear and a Metzler on the front.... go figure. 2300 miles and no problems but I think I'll match them upon replacement.
