I bought a set of these trying to find something that will work well on a 1998 Honda Goldwing Se. This tire did very well. My one complaint was on stability. I could feel the tire wobble when I hit road imperfections and snapped the bike into curves. It wasn't bad but is wasn't as stable as a five ply tire. It wasn't as expensive either. I can't post mileage on the tire because I had a valve stem tear and had to ride the bike for more than twenty miles on the flat tire. It never came off the rime. That speaks well of it. I might try another one.
I have not yet come to shoot more than 300 miles. but I like this tire behaves. It has good grip on the pavement although I have not tried in the rain. Vulcan 1700 classic have a more stable and do not want to 100 mph with my wife passing. I decided to buy it because I have seen other friends have it mounted on their bikes and have done well with this tire. Besides having a spectacular price. I save a little money. Now I also buy the front. 100% recommend this tire.
I have had many shinko tires. This is my first bad one. My local Harley shop,tried for an hour to mount this 16" tire to my 16" roadking rim. They could NOT get the tire on the rim. I am returning the tire. I will now find out if Motorcycle Superstore will stand behind its product, and credit my account.
