I bought the h50 to run as a pair to a bridgestone g704 on my Indian Roadmaster. Wet and dry traction are exceptional, planted and stable straight line and curves, and effortless turn in on curves. Very little if any noise at all through curves compared to stock Dunlop e3s, and does not seem to be effected by tar snakes at all. The battlecruise h50 seems to have the same tread pattern found on the g709 bridgestone which makes this a near perfect match to the bridgestone g704 that I love running on the rear. I will be using this tire again in the future on my Indian.
