    Macadam

    These are the best tires I have run on my BMW R80RT. They have excellent traction and several sets lasted 12k miles each. Lasertecs lasted only 6k. Bridgestones lasted 18k, but lacked traction.

    several sets

    I have run several sets of these (6 rears & 4 fronts?) and they work VERY well. Take a few miles to warm up and soften up a bit but last TWICE as long as Lasertecs and handle just as well. For about two years I has running thru a rear every 3-4 months and ended up with laser tecs but ONLY ONCE as they burned out in 5000 miles for a rear and 8000 in the front. I get 10000 from a Macadam rear and around 18000 from a front.

    Very pleased with the Mac 50's

    Stumbled into a deal on the Mac 50 rear 17", and a Commander front 21". Got 11K from the stock Dunnies on my Wide Glide, and just replaced the Mich's at 14K. Found a screamin' deal on the rear at JakeWilson.com for $64. Bought two to get over the free shipping threshold; mounted one, and one in reserve. Very happy with these.

    Just recently replaced a stock rear tire on ‘09 Dyna,10243 miles on it. Sure hope I get as many miles on this too. 2nd day out for a ride . Through some pretty winding back roads up to the Allegheny river. Then on the return we used interstate 80. This tire never gave me any reason not to buy another.

    Michelin - Macadam M50 Sport Touring Rear Tire

    Same as the front! I have used almost all brands in the last 250,000 miles on my three Honda ST1100. These are the best of all of them for all five categories. Please do not discontinue selling them.

    M 50 rear

    using this tire on the front of a Goldwing (1500) trike. This is my third M 50. Trike is set up to use both front calipers with front brake lever. I use front brake 80 or 90 percent the time, consequently, only get 11 or 12K of mileage from it, most others will get as many as 20K. Being 80 series instead of the original 70, it corrects the speedometer (front wheel driven) to just about right on. hope this will be helpful.

    m50 macadam touring tire

    I use this tire as a front tire on my trike (gl1800) and I will get 25000 miles or more with this tire. The stock front tire will wear out in less than one year on a trike.

    Macadam on ST1100

    Note that this is a non-radial tire, so the cornering is no comparison to a radial. When I first put them on after running radials, it felt like the bike wanted to go straight rather than turn. I've gotten more used to them since but I'll go back to radials after this set. I got less than 7k miles on the back and will get about double that on the front. So, not the greatest mileage on the back. However, this is a quality tire as you would expect from Michelin. Very stable and great traction.

    Good Tire

    I ordered the Michelin Macadams for my 90s Honda Nighthawk 750 because they offered the best quality and longevity for the price. My decision was based on having these tires before and getting some 13K miles out of them, nearly twice what I got from other brands I had on the bike. Motorcycle Superstore had the best price once you figured in free shipping. The tires were delivered promptly and I've been happy with them so far.

    Michelin Macadam M50 Sport touring rear tire

    Put on a '79 BMW R100RS. An excellent tire for riding corners (old bike, sport touring-not a crotch rocket). Handles well. Predictable traction. A little wobble in rain grooves. Second or third one on the bike. Relatively good mileage.(5-8k). Tough to find bias ply tires let alone 100% aspect ratio (Softer ride, more ground clearance). Good enough traction to allow me to drag pegs. Great service from Motorcycle Superstore. Arrived within a week. Best price I saw. Will Buy Again.

    This is my fourth M50 tire and have averaged 9000 to 9500 miles per tire. I ride a 1995 R100RT and am not an aggressive rider. I consider this a good tire at an affordable price.

    Great service!

    This tire was delivered promptly to my doorstep at a price that even after paying $25 to have it mounted and balanced was still less than I could buy the tire for locally. Also important to me was the tire was fresh, I believe less than 6 months from manufacture. Since I've only had these tires a few hundred miles, I base my rating on the Mac 50s I just took off.
