Works great on gravel/forest roads. Noise level gets increases as tire wears, also seems change with speed as it wears. Louder at higher speeds. Ear plugs are needed. Tread wear okay, at 4500 miles with another 1-2k left. About 1/2 the typical Anakee 3 mileage I have gotten.
The performance both on and off road is very good, tread life is about 1/2 the typical Anakee 3 mileage I have gotten. This makes it a poor choice for a long trip. 2.5k was end of tread life for me on a 4k trip, mostly asphalt but 25% gravel/forest roads. Wild front and Anakee 3 rear got me home.
Theses are the only tires I ever use on my BMW R1200RT I have not tried the PR 4 tires yet but I have gone through many sets or 2s and 3s and you can't get any better combination of performance and tread ware.
I quit running Dunlop on my Roadglide due to the fact that I was using two sets of tires per riding season. I will admit Dunlop makes a good tire, I just don't get the same miles out of them as I do the Michelins. I ride the cycle rather aggressively and have never felt uneasy in corners as some reviews state. With that said, it does seem like there is a break-in period of 300-500 miles on the Commander 2s. I will take an extra 5000 miles on a set of tires any day. This is why Michelin Commander 2's have been my choice of tire for several years.
