Just finished six states and 1,972 miles in the Smoky Mountains on the Back of the Dragon, Tail of the Dragon, Cherolholla Sky way and Blue Ridge Parkway. Had several hours in the rain and lots of aggressive peg scraping twisties on my K1200LT. These tires handled magnificently way better than the Metzler bias plys. Stuck like glue on rails in the corners even handled some gravel well in the Georgia Six Gap runs we did but had a howling sound around 60-65 MPH. I'll put up with the noise to get the grip turn initialization and wet stability.

Most excellent tire - well designed.

For the money, great tire. I feel because it is a vintage tire the tread life is extremely low, because most are not driven that often. My old air-head beemer wore this tire down in about 12,000 miles. Still a good deal as it is easy to change yourself. will buy another!

It's a good tire, it's OEM so I keep using them but wish I could get more wear out of them. Great tires just don't last long. Got 16000 out of the last rear tire.

I out them on my Kawasaki W650 about 4,400 miles ago. The back tire is almost down to hex wear strips, and the front is similar. So wear isn't wonderful, but you have to remember you sacrifice wear for performance. These tires have made my bike a stellar performer. (It's a retro version of a 1970 triumph bonneville). This bike doesn't have super suspension, but the original tires really held it back. I spooned the Dunlops on and it completely changed how the bike handles. I have little or no chicken strips on the back, and the dude stand has been heavily scraped. I didn't ride it like I stole it all the time, but it's great to know the tires will let it handle almost like a sport bike. Wet weather performance is excellent too. I've had the tires start to slide two up on a cold wet day, but only because I was pushing it a bit hard. I highly recommend these tires. I will be installing another set soon. Price wise they are economical too! I figure I'll get about 5,000 miles out of these in this bike.

On my V rod this tire spun like crazy when new. Even rolling onto the throttle in second gear the tire would spin. Reviews said good mileage, up to 9,000 miles. Not the case for me, I got about 2500 and the P.O.S is worn in the center. Time for a new one already. Guess these tires aren't rated for triple digit speeds very often. Won't buy another one of these!
