We sent Boothy over to Morocco to see if Bridgestone’s new sports touring tyre can roll with his punches…
Orange and green should never be seen.

Who says that when your saddlebags are stacked to the brim with pants, socks and johnnies, and you’re on an umpteenhundred mile expedition to a land far, far away you have to ride as slow as Pretty Boy? Not us. And not Bridgestone either. They have just launched their new Battlax Sport Touring T31 tyre so we flew over to Morocco to see exactly what they had to offer.

The T31 (T for touring) replaces the T30evo and, according to the bods at Bridgestone, gives the rider more feel and more grip without affecting wear rate. I know what you’re thinking and you’re right – that’s a pretty standard claim for a manufacturer launching a new tyre. Specifically, though, Bridgestone reckon they’ve worked hard to improve wet grip, particularly in low temperatures, with a tread pattern that disperses water more efficiently by increasing the ‘sea:land’ ratio on the shoulder of the tyre.
