Rated 2.1 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not bad First year on my wide glide I put 13000 on this tire with no complaints. The second year I tried the Perelli night dragon and it was horrible, the front weather checked within months and chopped horribly and the rear started to chop as well. So this 3rd I went back the the Michelins. A little pricy but a good tire. Good grip in all riding conditions. May 27, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by tire seems fine to me i ride a 2013 wide glide. it came with this tire and the scorcher on the front too. i'm puzzled by all the reviews claiming that these tires don't last: mine have about 16,000 miles on them and the tread is still good. the wear bars are still nowhere near the surface; the tires haven't slipped out from under me, and i have not been sucked into a groove, or had them "stick" to tar strips. they'll probably get replaced this winter, but so far these tires have held up quite well. and i ride pretty much every day i can, on streets and highway. daily riding, and those 500-1500 mile trips when the weather's real nice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed for a Michelin I replaced @ 7000 mile with another brand "Pirelli". The ride is better and the tire is much quieter when leaning into a turn. September 29, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Michelin wallet scorcher Im on a 2015 wide glide. Ive got just under 7000 miles this summer so far and the tire is about shot. I have nothing posotive to say about this tire. Im not in to burnouts and such but do ride hard. Tire already needs to be changed. Does not brake well. The roads were damp from a previous rain today and the tire got slippery under light acceleration. Slides easily when braking in wet conditions. I have been put in the ditch because of these cheapily made tires this year. The price because of the H-D stamp on the side is ridiculously over the top. The tire sticks to tar strips and is easily grabbed by the grooves in the road. Tread wear is poor. For the cost of this rear tire I can get 2 much better tires and have them mounted and balanced with money to spare. I will not recommended this tire to anyone. July 26, 2015
