Replaced my Dunlop's with these on my '09 Dyna and I couldn't believe the difference in the handling. It's like a totally different bike. Doesn't jump when I cross the grooves between lanes and they really stick in the corners. Don't know what kind of mileage I'll get from them yet but anything over the 11K I got on the rear will be better. Great service from DK too. Ordered them on Friday and received them on Monday.
I can say without a doubt these (front & rear) Commander II's are the best tires I have ever owned. My Harley-Davidson FXDC handles and rides like it's on rails. Far superior to the stock Dunlop's that came on the bike.
Put this tire along with the matching rear Michelin just prior to a 700 mile trip to southern Missouri and northern Arkansas. Riding the winding two lane roads in that area was a real joy and this tire was awesome. Very precise in the corners and confidence inspiring even in the rain. Some of the roads in Missouri have grooves cut in the direction of travel for wet road traction for cars. The previous Dunlop always wanted to follow those edge traps, but this Michelin all but ignored them. Superior handling in all the conditions I've encountered this far. Best. Tire. Ever!!!
2009 Harley Davidson FXD Super Glide. Southeast Florida. I've only got about 700 miles on these Michelins so far, but they are performing well. Florida roads are famous for being real slick in the rain but I've had no issues with traction so far, and I'm pretty fussy about it. The handling is quick and nimble. Two local shops here have been installing these tires on touring models with much success so I thought I'd give them a try.
I ordered this and a rear tire for a road trip later this spring. I am in Wichita KS and there is a foot of snow on the ground. It may be a little bit before I get these put on the bike. But Dennis Kirk's shipping and service is excellent in my opinion. Still rated the tires at 5. Will revise if it gets any different.
I bought this Commander II front tire along with the rear tire for my 2001 Harley Davidson Dyna LowRider to replace the stock brand that I was running. WOW... this is by far the best tire I have ever purchased. The Commander II has the smoothest ride, and it handles excellent on wet and dry roads. I highly recommend this tire for your motorcycle. I will definitely return to buy another set when the time comes.
Will look here first for all my other biking needs. They must stand behind their products as thy are genuinely concerned about my satisfaction and value me as a customer , even though this is my first time purchasing from them. M. Armour
