I trust you Osco. I just mounted new whitewalls 2 weeks ago so it'll be 8-9k before I'll be tire shopping. The two Dunlop whitewalls I have cost me a total of nadda due to parts sales, and that's hard to NOT make ya wanna run them.

I've always liked Continental tires. I just ordered a new rear, a K112 for the old-time look.

I put Avon's on my bike and I hated them. My bike turned OK, but hated going straight at any speed. Avon's were also slippery, wet or dry. Front would slide out and the rear was always breaking loose. I put Dunlop's back on. They do everything I need a tire to do.

My E3's are okay on the pavement. But they're pretty tricky on wet grass or mud.

Just surpassed 2300 miles on the Michelin CEIIs and they handle way better to me than the stock Dunlops. Had some issues with wet weather handling, but I am running 42 psi front and rear and it seems to have gotten better (please note that I ride an FLHTK.)
