I am glad to hear about the BT-021s. I have similar experience with the
BT-020s doing rides from Montreal-Los Angeles-Montreal, I can do it with one
set and use them afterwards in town. Once I did this trip with a BT-010 in
the front, it turned qucker but I was glad just to make it home. Please keep
us posted about them.

I recently replaced the BT-020's on my '99 R1100RS after 17,000
miles. About half of those miles on a very short urban commute and
half on two-up touring. The tires were great in the rain and had
plenty of tread left. The rear took a roofing nail, and the front had
just started cupping. I'm on the BT-021's now, only about 1,000
miles, so, too soon to say much, but the rain performance is as good
or better. Fast warm-up and dry grip are good too - I park in a
university lot with a mess of CBRs, Ninjas and GSX-Rs - and my 021
rear is the one with near-zero chicken strip :-)
