Best I've ever had!
This tire rocks! When I first took off after the installation, the tires were grabbing all the loose gravel/rocks and spitting them up unto my fenders of my 2009 Street Glide, which startled the heck out of me until I realized what it was, drove another block, then all was quiet and smooth. The tire grips better than any other tire I've ever bought for this or any other bike that I've owned. I was recommended to purchase this tire for my bike by my mechanic, and I'd like to pay it forward by recommending the purchase of this tire.

Great tire!
Just rode this tire 1,500 miles. Ran the Dragon and Cherohala Skyway. Stuck really good, wet and dry. Got caught in a "monsoon" on the way home, and the tire showed excellent wet weather traction. Hoping the mileage is better than stock, but time will tell.

Best tires ever
Needed a rear on my 2012 Ultra and I just purchased front tire for special rebate from Dunlop if two tires were purchased. My front has only 12,000 mi. on it , the orig. equip.front Dunlop got 32,000 so i figure another 20K or so. The American Elite gets super mileage and great handling

These tires are great!

Decent Replacement Tires
Good replacement as far as costs versus HD dealer. Tread design similar to HD stock tire, (I both F&R, I didn't want to mismatch tread designs), I haven't put many miles on these tires yet to fully review the performance. But for $330 for 2, I saved $200 over Dealer price, + another Dunlop promo of $50.

A real road hugger
recently purchased this american eagle elite and for the short time i've had it on my 11 ultra limited i can honestly say "wow, this baby really grabs the road' i thought something was wrong with the bike at first, but as i kept riding i realized this is just one great tire. totally happy. and it works in unison with the american eagle elite i recently put on the rear. and not for nuttin, it's a lot cheaper than the harley version
