Ok I never wright anything like this. But this might help a few out there. I have a 2009 CVO Springer that corners like a concrete truck. I switched to the Metzelers and the bike has improved greatly. My two cents.

Awesome looking wide tire, completely changed the rear look of the bike. DK had the best price by far ($50 cheaper than anyone). Fast free shipping also. Will definitely buy from them again.

Wears a bit too fast
I'm 5K into this tire and it's already almost shot. No burn-outs, no stupid stuff - just riding one-up. I'm going with the Dunlop Elite 3 as a replacement on my FXSB.

This tire was exceptional for the first 4k miles then developed a wear pattern that made the bike very unstable in corners. Will not use this tire again.

Good tire
I am on my second 240VR-18 and have been getting 8,000 miles out of it. With a 113 ci motor against it and the coarse texture roads we have, it is all I could expect for mileage. Handling has been good.
