29,000-30,000 miles on my last set of E3's
I love these tires, after over 29,000 of mostly 2 up riding last year the rear held up great. I will admit that it did cup at the end but what can you say for that many miles on a m.c tire. Tire code dates have always been good from Dennis Kirk, not old stock like some.

Get rids of the classic Voyager low speed wobble.
I have been buying Dunlop Elites since the original 291 Elites were introduced 30 years ago.

The Elite 3 is another great tire from Dunlop. I have been using them on my '86 Kawasaki Voyager and made nearly 18,000 high speed miles on my last rear, replaced March 2011, and I think around 30,000 on my last front. This is the best mileage I have seen on this bike. I don't even remember what I ran before the E3s came out.

Plus, the E3 front does a great job of eliminating most, if not all, of the classic Voyager 1200 low speed steering shake.

Good handling, good traction, and good mileage. Exactly what I look for in a tire.

I recommend them!

Well Worth It
This is the second Touring Bike I've changed to the Elite 3 and what a difference. You get to "ride" the bike instead of having to "drive" it. Smooth and Quiet. No tracking or pulling, JUST RIDING ...... and if you know CT roads ! ! !

Great Buy
The Dunlap Elite 3 tires have always performed very well on my GL1200 Goldwing. The price, fast & FREE shipping were bonuses. I get about 14,000 miles on the rear tire.
