Commander II
Could not believe the difference in ride and handling. Thought it was all hype made by the company but was I pleasantly suprised. If you own a touring "hog" replace the OEM with the commander II. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!

Great Tire !!
I have a 06 Road King and almost always pull 2 up and a lot of weight !! I have been through just about every Tire Out There !! My Bike has just over 68,000 miles on it !! And None of them can get better then 6500 miles before they need replacing !! This is my second MICHELIN COMMANDER on the Rear and the one I just replaced had a Good 12,000 miles on it !!! That's Double from all the Rest !! This Tire Handles and Rides Great even in Heavy Down Pour Rain !! This is the Tire to put on any Bagger !! You wouldn't be Sorry !!!

Awesome Tire
These are the best motorcycle tires I have ever ridden on. I have 105,000 miles on my 03 Electra Glide. I have pretty much tried every major motorcycle tire mfg out there, Dunlop, Metzler, Pirelli and Avon. The Michlellin Commander II tires put them to shame. This tire is a big improvement over the Commander I tires as well. They ride great, handle great and are excellent in the rain as well. Do yourself a favor, put a set of these Michellin Commander II's on your motorcycle. If these tires get the claimed milage they are saying, Wow.. I put a set of tires on my Glide every summer, I will be alble to get almost two riding seasons out of these. Talk about saving some money? 2000 miles on them so far, so far no measurable wear, so we'll see.

EXCELLENT handling even in Rain!!
I LOVE this tire! It sticks to the road great in the rain and in corners. I get the mot mileage out of this tire from any other I've bought. I do a lot of pulling and the tire handles anything I throw at it like a champ. I could be a sales rep for this tire I like it that much!

So far so good.
I was recommended this tire and so far no complaints. I was running factory Harley Dunlops on my CVO Ultra before I got these. So far everything is perfect and the one thing that stands out is how they handle in the 70 to 80 mph Freeway riding. Very sturdy, gives a positive feeling where the Dunlops were not so much. In defense of the Dunlops I purchased my bike used so they may have been fine with new tread. The installer did say fitment of the rear was tight, they charged me an extra .4 in time because of it. I could not tell you if this is relevant but thought I would share.
