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.

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.

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.
