Michelin Commander 2 Front Tires Peformance Features Unrivaled tire life Michelin tests with a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Classic prove a Michelin Commander II is capable of covering up to 40,000 kilometers (Almost 25,000 miles). The Michelin Commander II creates a new standard in regards to durability, without making compromises in wet weather grip, maneuverability or stability Silica Rain Technology integrates silica into the compound of the tire tread in order to prevent all forms of uneven wear The exclusive architecture of the Michelin Commander II brings both maneuverability and stability. The tires rigid, high-density carcass improves maneuverability, while the aramid fiber crown ply of the rear tire enhances resistance and lightness for impeccable stability, even at high speeds Numerous longitudinal grooves of the new tire's tread pattern optimize water dispersal for outstanding wet weather gri Independent tests show that the Michelin Commander II rear tire lasts almost twice as long its main competitors, the Metzeler ME 880 and the Dunlop D407/408. Technological Features Amplified Density Technology A highly dense, more-rigid tire casing, which helps deliver excellent feedback and handling Aramid tread plies on the rear tire resist centrifugal growth, reduce weight and provide excellent stability All-new rubber compounds for remarkable wet grip, without compromising durability Square bead wires improve casing rigidity, handling and ease of installation Styling Features Unique tread pattern for head-turning looks Premium sidewall treatment complements cruiser styling Please Note Check your manufacturer's specifications for required load ratings when replacing OE Tires. Please Note 140/75R17 size is a radial tire. Please Note 130/90/B16 is not suitable for fitment to rear wheels.

Michelin claims almost twice the treadlife with the Commander II tires. I only have about 1800 miles on these new tires so far, so I can't comment on that yet. If I even get the same treadlife I did with my original Dunlop tires, I will be very happy. They grip the road much better than the stock Harley-Davidson/ Dunlop D427 OEM tires on my Fat Bob. They also lean into turns much easier and don't follow rain grooves or tar snakes. Great handling and responsiveness! I run the rear at about 41psi and the front at 40psi.

After being caught in a few downpours, I had been looking for some rain gear but the Harley stuff is very pricey. I'm also a bit of a difficult fit, usually requiring a large in the pants and an XL to fit my chest and shoulders, so matched 2-piece sets don't usually work well for me. I went down to the RevZilla Philly showroom and the staff was extremely helpful and informative. I had heard good things about Tourmaster gear, so I was pretty focused on that brand, but the first one piece I tried on was a good fit for me. I rated it only 4 for protection and durability, but that's only because I haven't owned it long enough or had to use it often enough yet to verify it's durability. Protection is great though. Later that same day that I bought it, I got caught in the rain. I quickly pulled over, under cover and threw on my new suit. It kept me dry and comfortable the rest of the way home. Very pleased with my purchase and thankful to the RevZilla staff. They really do go the extra mile to make sure customers are happy and satisfied with their purchase.

I had been wearing a Bell Star Carbon, which I loved with the exception of it being a noisy helmet. I went down to the Philadelphia showroom with the intent on buying some rain gear and also ended up with the Schuberth C3. I wore a Medium in the Bell Star and also ended up in a Medium with the Schuberth. The Schuberth is more of a snug fit, however, not uncomfortably so. It is a very comfortable and QUIET helmet. NOTE: On the first ride, once up to highway speeds, I thought that all the hype about it being so quiet was overrated. I was hearing wind noise similar to what I had experienced with the Bell Star (although not quite as loud). Then I realized that the visor was in the "city" position. To close the visor properly for highway speeds, you need to push down and you will hear/feel a positive click that locks the visor into position. This eliminates any lingering wind noise. Air flow is good, but I rated it a 3 because it does not feel quite as good as the Bell Star. Pinlock visor seems to work well and I didn't experience any fogging. I've read some people commenting about the chin strap being uncomfortable. You can adjust the chin strap and once I did, it eliminated what minor discomfort I was experiencing.
Another important note is that the staff at Revzilla are extremely pleasant and helpful. They are very well informed and knowledgeable and go the extra mile to ensure you are getting a product that fits your needs and will be happy with. In this day and age, good customer service is difficult to come by, but at Revzilla, it is alive and well!
