I replaced my rear roadsmart with BT016 on my SV... That new stone has a totally different character over the Dunlop.
The 016 just loves to be sporty quick to lean, as if my bike is not nimble enough already. The dunlop is tamer and requires a tad more effort to lean.
I will probably miss the 10k miles, and solid feel of the Roadsmart.
However moving over to the Bridgestone will allow my riding techniques to be further enhanced. The new tire does feel softer and in turns it feels like it is sliding just a tad, I just have to get used to the soft sides is all.
I was spoiled to the solid planted feeling of the roadsmart.
All in all I love this new 016 tire so far.

cool. Thanks for the input.
I have a set of BT016's on the way. I'll update after having scrubbed them in.
