Ride a 2009 V-Star 1100 in Colorado foot hills and mountains. Very happy with the tire except for wear life. Rides great on mountain passes and highway. Good traction - never had a slip except due to spring gravel on road. Tread wears too quick- less than 5k miles (in 3 years) and have to replace both tires.
I own several bikes and run Commander II's (Michelin) on all but the touring bike (Road Glide). I found that the traction (wet/dry), wear, and stability is superb on this tire for the touring bike. I changed both tires at 15K but easily had another 1K+ on front and 500+miles on rear - and I'm a fairly aggressive rider. This same tire on my cruisers were worn out at 9K on rear and 11K on front and didn't feel as "tight" in the twisties, especially in damp conditions, so I went to the Commanders for those bikes. But for a touring bike, I have not ridden a better tire.
Back in 1920, Dunlop was the first company to use Kevlar belts in the manufacture of motorcycle tires. Since then, Dunlop tires has introduced one innovation after another. From 1920 to today, Dunlop tires is known for delivering on performance and reliability.
