I've been riding street bikes for about 23 years and Harleys for the past 5 years. I have always changed out my Dunslops for alternate better gripping tires even if it meant less milage. Safety is my number one priority. I recently got a pair of these Dunlops to replace the same ones on a pre owned 2011 Fat Bob I purchased from a dealership. They split the cost of the new tires with me and recommended these stock tires. I thought I would give them a try. Well after about 500 miles I hate them. The only thing I like about them is the look. They put me all over the road and are very wobbly in turns and twists. Maybe it's because the compound is too hard. I will be looking at Avon Cobra's or Metzeler ME 888's very shortly as those are what I run on my other Hogs and love them. The ONLY Dunlops I've had a good experience with recently are Elite III's which I had put on my Honda Goldwing to replace the old worn out stock Dunlops that came on that bike when I got.it pre owned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by alzpgm29 Wear and traction
First rear tire worn out at 8,000 miles. I don't call that good, and I don't ride or brake hard. Front tire cupped at 10,000 miles, again no hard riding or braking. Tire wears to fast for me to spend that kind of money.
As far as traction, I would have to say good even in wet conditions.
