Just from my own experience, there are MUCH better tires out there for most motorcycles than Bridgestone offers. One other sure indicator is that so many Japanese makers equip their motorcycles with them and that is solely a financial decision (taking into consideration the big name reputation). You'll almost never get a top of the line tire on a new bike. Not necessarily to be confused with a top Name-Brand, which may reflect market share rather than quality/performance.
But, then again, the BT45 may be exactly what will make YOU happiest on YOUR bike.
We run Bridgestone Ecopia's on the wife's car and they have been excellent. At 175k miles we've replaced the tires several times and I believe these may be the one's I'm the most satisfied with.
