a tour tire to research and consider is Dunlop Elite 3 tour tire. dual compound. came stock on my 14 injun. am at 16k and the rear still looks good as though it has at least 1 more safe 4k road trip left on it. Tires do go fast toward the end, so I will be watching it close next month fall trip. but 20k out of rear tire is almost car like? ponchoI have almost 10k on my MCII's. Looking great still. Rough guess by looking and measuring tread is another 10k left?
After reading so much about the Michelin commander II's I decided that I wanted to put them on my 2011 Nomad 1700 ! I can find the front tire, but cannot find the right size for the rear. Where are you finding them, or are you just using the front?
count yor blessing yor not riding one thos hardley paint shakers.. but then you would not be here?Man, the subject of tires, oil and filters can really ruffle some feathers. Funny how everyone's are the best and your an idiot if you don't use the ones I do. I'd be happy if they didn't have the manufacturers name molded into or stamped on the sides. Then you could just say "yup I use those too". But then these forums would be boring, so, never mind.
