What an improvement over the stock size Dunlop and Bridgestone. I've had both the Dunlop and Bridgestone on my bike and was very unhappy with the life span of the tires. Both were worn out in around 5000 miles. I've got 5000 miles on this tire now, and by the looks of the tread, I'll put at least another 5000. I have had no problem with traction, even in the rain. There is some wallowing on grooved pavement, but both other rear tires I've had did that also. This does rub ever so slightly if you bottom the shocks out due to the slightly wider than stock size. But it's not enough to worry about. The only reason I know this is that I had to re-route my turn signal wires very carefully, as I noticed there was some abrasion on the insulation. I will probably always use this tire for future changes. Liked it enough to buy a front one to match.
