I just had these Michelin S83 tires installed front and rear on my wife's 2009 Yamaha Vino 125. These are great compared to the stock Cheng Shin tires it came with. They are a softer rubber compound so they probably won't get the same mileage as the stock tires but who cares its a scooter and it doesn't get more than 500 miles a year put on it. The cornering traction is outstanding wet or dry due to the softer rubber compound and the tread pattern. Those stock tires did not like to lean much before losing their grip on the wet roads. Very happy with these Michelins and will be buying them again when needed...

WOW..... After several weeks of researching and reading different reviews on other tires. I decided to pull the trigger and order both front and rear tires for my 09 kawasaki concours 14. Had bridgestone on before and all I can say that my bike road great before and now feels like a luxury vehicle riding on air. Tires arrived very quickly after ordering and took them to the bike shop to have them installed same day they were delivered. Put a little over 100 miles on first ride. All i can say is that they are everything they promise and I'm still amazed at how much better my ride is. Hoping to get good mileage out of them and can't wait for some warmer weather to do more serious riding!!!!!!!!

Alright, nobody panic! Commander IIs are GREAT tires, but... For some stupid reason (baffled tons of H-D techs), my Commander II (front tire) only got a mere 5,000 miles on it before it was *at NC state minimums [tread depth] for inspections. Yes, you read that correctly: 5k; not 12k or 15k, but 5k. I follow H-D tire psi recommendations to a T (36psi for Fat Boys/Softails) for both tires and my front one wore down F-A-S-T! But when I called Michelin directly, they took care of it for me! They offered to pay half of the cost for a new one so I got a new Commander II and 3-weeks later, I got my check from Michelin. I know this is a good product and I just happened to get a freak tire. No worries. I'm sure my new one will make up the difference... ~Allen

I bought this tire 2 months ago and love it. It feels like a brand new bike. I've been through heavy rain, cold and hot weather and it has rode perfect. I can now rub pegs in the rain with no worries. This is one of the few products in my life I have seen deliver on what they say.I would buy nothing else but the Michelin tires from now on.

These are by far the best tires I been on. I got 3 years of life out of the rear tire. I have not replaced the rear tire yet and it still gets grip in wet and dry.
