Put this on my 2011 FLHTK. First ride on the tire 300 miles. Ride is better than the Dunlop's. Tire does not seem to follow the road snakes. Thirty MPH cross wind's and seems to hold the road fine. Did not notice any more road noise than other tires. Will see how they wear and ride in the rain. Would buy again.

Good tires, will know more when I see how they hold up

A ton of grip. Makes me feel confident in the handling of the bike. Now i lean a little more and accelerate a little harder. Great service as allways and fast shipping. Thanks J&P.

Great tire for the price. Hold the road nicely.

I am on my second set of these. I put 26,000 miles on and only used 2/3 of the tread. I only changed them due to a trip of 6,000 miles and changing summer temps. I am sure I could have gotten 36k. don't think I will be switching to any other tires.

We ride a lot. We do a lot of camping, so there is extra weight on the rear tire. We've gone from Dunlops and Bridgestones to ME880's and ME888's. I'd try the Michelins because friends say they are great, but I really like the 888's, so why switch?? Maybe I can get a second bike.. My wife has the same tires on her bike, and on a really hot Kansas day when I'm behind her I can see the hard rubber stripe in the center of the tire. I like the cornering traction, but mostly I like that the tire profile stays round longer through its life. The bike leans over easy corner even with 7,000 miles on the tire.
