2009 dyna fxdc
I would recommend this product highly to anybody as i have so far gotten over 24,000 miles out of my commander 2 rear tire this last riding season and also the fact that this tire is cheaper than the dunlop. I loved how it handled corners greatly even in the rain. It even handled and gripping of the road in colder weather at the end of nvember and early december. i wont ever buy another tire other than a commander 2 which i also has on the front of my fxdc bessie........i am a member of a law enforcement motorcycle club in the midwest and ride all season starting in feb thru dec.........i would highly recommend this product to other bikers......well worth the price

Excellent Tires
Love these tires and from what I hear I will get double the mileage the dunlops were getting...harder tires than the dunlops, but so far they ride nice and they have plenty of meat on them.

Mileage Update
Just bought my second set. I put these on my '09 Dyna two years ago and got more than twice the mileage I put on the Dunlops I had on. I still had some tread left but thought I'd start the year fresh.

08 Superglide
These tires ride so much better than the Dunlop's that were on there. Such a smooth ride. Grips the road very well. I would highly recommend these tire to anyone. Not sure about mileage, only have around 1000 on them. So far I am very happy with this purchase.

So far, so good!
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.

Happy with tire and Dennis Kirk!
I bought the Commander II based on what I've read about it, it should last longer than the stock Dunlop. I'm very happy with the performance so far. It holds it's line in the curves and a short drive in rain the other day was no problem.

I'm very happy with the way Dennis Kirk treated me. I bought the tire online. The following day I got email about a tire sale so I contacted the customer service department through email and got a refund of the difference in just a couple days.

I'm very dissatisfied with the UPS shipping service. I selected standard ground service and was told the tire would arrive in 7 days. Tracking showed that the tire could have been delivered on day 5, but instead it went to a city 50 miles in the wrong direction, not once, but twice!
