Good review! I'd love to hear about wet performance as soon as you have enough experience in those conditions on the Q3's. I'm fairly certain the Roadsmart II's are going to be the right tires for me, but I'd like to know more about the Q3's from the perspective of a real CBR500R rider.

S20 and S20 evo don't, but the S21 have our size in the size chats... i am actually considering taking these (S21) when the time comes ... not that it would be anywhere close yet, based on the time i have for riding and style of my riding, i guess that will be sometime next year maybe ... and until then, there will be other options, so we will see ...

I suppose when these d222 tires wear out I'll resort to the Bridgestone BT-023 sport tourer tires.
I've used them on heavier much more powerful bikes and I would be surprised if I got less than 10-12,000 miles on the CB.
Being sport touring tires they will not be as grippy as a pure sport tire but the 023 ain't bad. I've never had a problem with them when pushed hard. They are also much cheaper than all the others.

Great tire review TTZ.

You're right, just had another look at the Bridgestone website.
There's so many options.

I need recommendations for a split / two compound tyre ( harder Centre with soft sides) as I do 1400klm weekend touring rides and scrape pegs on on my favorite road......... if your passsing through south east NSW Tathra to Bermagui coast road is a must people !!!!

That would be your BT 023.

The PP3 were a good dual compound, that served commuting and corners well. Is recommend them, though haven't tried other tyres excluded from the review. My praise for the Q3 is because it suits my personal riding attributes.

Our 500s doesn't have enough power to warm-up hypersport tires sufficiently that is why I would stick with Touring tires on these motorcycles. But thats just me.

That's about how I feel about it. Putting an expensive all out sport tire on this bike about like putting lipstick on a pig. Waste of money.
