Just got home with the new Bridgestone S22s fitted. Will write about them once the weather lets me to scrub them in.
While i'm aware those tires are good, may be better in the cold and rain but 35+ celsius degrees summer days on track with tarmac hot as **** is where they will surely overheat and im planning to do a trackday in the summer every weekend if possible. Im also not really concerned about mileage and price is roughly the same for those ST tires. I'm not trying to convince anyone to buy sport tires but i will share my experience with them.Just got home with the new Bridgestone S22s fitted.

Sorry, I do not understand. What makes you think, that you need a Sport or Hyper Sport tire for your XSR700? Is it your tremendous riding skill? The high performance, which needs to be brought to the tarmac with every beat of the engine?
With the todays experience, you only need an actual touring tire, which will cover all your needs and will handle all your demands. Just to understand my little world of tires, here is a write up from last year's experience: https://www.xsr700forums.com/forum/83798-post30.html
Some ideas and types. But first of all, you need to define your personal needs. Refer to the thread starter, he only thinks about Michelin Pilot...
...but what does this mean? Pilot Road, Pilot Power, who knows?
I DeYo,Dones anyone know how are those mt60rs handling on normal road? Is it smart going for them if I wouldn’t be doing any off road? (Choosing between Michelin road 5 and Pirelli’s)
Getting the STRs fitted tomorrow so hopefully will be able to offer up an opinion and some photos this week.Interesting - I wonder how the MT60RS compares with the Scorpion Rally STR that is fitted to the Desert Sled? It's good to hear that you find the MT60RS comfortable on the road.
