Anyone on here running them? Thoughts?
You dont say for what bike. The Kawi?
Anyway, never ran them, never will.
They last a long time on metric bikes but seem to have their share of issues, more or less seems to be some kind of compromise in getting the tires to last as long as they do on metric bikes, which we know eat tires like a kid eats popcorn in a movie theater and some report good results on metrics with them, others get weird vibrations etc.
Its all in the forums.
For my current Harley, I actually am very happy with the HD branded tires (dunlops) and no reason to switch. Now over 20,000 miles on the front tire. I did replace the back tire at around 14,000 miles, seemed to be getting time, also was getting slight cupping.
With this type of mileage, no reason for me to switch, I also have much faith in these tires after a harrowing 2up trip to Myrtle Beach with my wife 2 summers ago, rode through FIVE hours of rain, heavy wind and thunderstorms, maybe even a funnel cloud, mostly all fast moving interstate type roads no less.
I didnt plan it, we left home early afternoon, and it just seemed the storms were forming the entire trip, never got past them, forming as we rode, we kept thinking, we are almost past it but we never got past the storms..
