    Good enough for Honda, Good enough for me.

    Exceptional tire life with Dunlop. This is an OEM replacement. I got a little over 10,000 miles with the original and that’s excellent for an almost 800lb VTX1800R. Natural road (slope) wear on left side finally down to the wear bar, right side still had some life. Back tire (D251 rear) still going strong, probably another 1,000 or 2 left in it. Hope this model never becomes discontinued.

    Good enough for Honda, good enough for me.

    Bottom line: Dunlop makes great tires. Original (2003) front tire gave me just over 10,000 miles before replacing (left side worn flush with the wear bar- normal slope road wear and as a right hander, harder leans on left turns). Still riding on the original rear (wearing evenly) probably another 1,000 or 2 left in it. 10,000 miles and 11 years (2014) - That's fantastic tire life for an almost 800lb Honda VTX-1800R.

    Tires on Yamaha Stratoliner S

    I am on my third set of these tires on the Stratoliner S. I like the feel cornering and their is great grip. The mileage wear is commensurate with other quality tires. I am running them a little harder and using bead balancers and am getting 10 miles on a set.

    Looks Good, So Far

    Got 11k miles from the first set, then tried Metzeler's. Did not get quite the mileage from the Metzeler that I did from the Dunlop, but it was a little cheaper. This time the Dunlop had the better price, so I'm back to it. Rides and handles well, and we'll see about the mileage. I think I prefer the Dunlop.

    2009 Stratoliner

    Great handling tire - but with most great handling tires, they wear out quick. Although I have gotten about 12k miles off the front tire, the rear only lasted about 8k miles. But hey, that might be my fault cause I like to twist the throttle.

    So Far I'm Impressed

    I've only had them on for a couple of weeks. I haven't ridden in the rain yet. However, right away I noticed a significant difference in handling.

    Deeper tread, please?

    Bought one of these for the front of my VTX-1800, since it was the OEM recommended. Rides well, but I was more than a little disappointed with the tread depth. Brand new, it would barely pass the Lincoln's head penny test. As expensive as these things are, it would be nice to have a little more rubber and a bit longer tread life. Good price and excellent service from MCSS, though!

    Very good stability...

    Replacing both the front and rear gave my bike an exceptional handling feel. The tires were the same as the original equipment tires which had about 8,000 miles; I truly expected to get more mileage. I received the tires really quickly and was very satisfied.

    New Tires

    I have a 2008 Kawasaki Vulcan 2000, and it came with Metzler tires. I was a little displeased with the handling, and cornering abilities. Then I changed to these Dunlop tires, and it was like getting a new bike, with the problem solved.

    Honda Rune D251 OEM Replacement Front Tire

    I received my front tire in only 3 days and best of all the build date was 1810, only 3 months old. So fresh it was still warm! I'm very happy with the service from this site.

    seems ok , hoping to get little better mileage out of this one - going to change driving habits and tire pressure.

    Re-tired

    Have purchased both front and rear tires from Motorcycle Superstore recently. Very pleased with purchases. Prices are good, and service is great. Had good communications on delivery, which was very quick; usually quicker than they said it would be. Would definitely do business with them again.

    Great Tires for the Honda VTX1800R

    We got over 10K miles on our first set of these tires. The new set arrived for Motrocycle Superstore and my mechanic told that the rear tire balnced out perfectly with "zero" weight required. The front tire required a tiny weight. Great tires for a VTX1800R.

    Dunlop

    My new bike came with Metzler tires, and the only complaint I had with the bike, was its cornering ability. I replaced both tires with 500 miles on the bike, with Dunlop, and it cured that cornering problem. I can't believe the difference.
