Quiet, comfortable, I got exactly what I needed in these tires. Make no mistake that these are not, and I repeat, not, intended for spirited driving, as I found out the last time I entered a corner at the same speed that I used to when I had some Bridgestones on. These tire will under-steer, badly. Turn in under normal driving is just fine, but I got a shock when I had to back off the throttle to get the nose to turn in. If you want touring tires that are quiet, comfortable and intended for cruising around, these are great, but don't get childish, you'll crash. Grip isn't great.
