I bought a set 12 thousand miles ago.
what a great ride, I was on vacation and had to replace the tires. put on a set of Pirelli. going back to Shinko 240 tires. great miles out of them and my 2004 Road King hugs the road way better. and talk about nice stopping!!
Put (2) Shinko 230's on my 82 Suzuki GS750TZ. Cost under $140 for both. Very sticky, confidence inspiring. Bike now really tracks well, hold the line and leans nicely in the twisties. I expect 5000 miles from them, but thats ok. I prefer tires to be changed with sticky rubber rather than pay more for harder rubber that lasts a little longer. If I pay another $140 in the next few years vs paying $300 for a higher mileage tire, I'm okay with that. Don't hesitate if your a vintage UJM owner. These are terrific value for dollar.
I have ran the 777's on two bikes, first was on a 2007 Roadstar 1700 and putting 2 set on a 2013 Yamaha Royal Star Venture S. These tires stick like glue in wet or dry conditions. They are very quiet, very stable, very smooth and VERY responsive!! I can feel the road through the grips with these tires. I am 6'1" and 225 lbs and my wife is 5'7" and 160 lbs. and we are always 2 up, long distance riders and pulling a trailer. I am a very aggressive rider and run ALOT of curves on the Venture. The Venture is also ridden daily for commute. The front I typically get 14,000-18,000 miles and the rear (depending on how much we pull the trailer) can get 6,000-12,000 miles on the PREVIOUS version (non HD) excited to see the mileage on the HD before it starts cupping.
