I come to the webpage to read various reviews of Dunlop Elite 3 Bias Ply Touring Rear Tire. And what do all the reviews discuss? Radial tires!
If I wanted to read about radials, I would have gone to the radial tire reviews. Are those who submit comments illiterate?
FWIW, Dunlop factory reps claim the GL1800 *must* use the Elite 3 radials and the GL1500 *must* use Elite 3 Bias Ply tires. They have different profiles; they are not interchangeable, and they should never be mixed.
I am considering changing brands and want to read reviews before deciding what I will purchase.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I needed to replace a very old, white, open-faced helmet and very few manufacturers still make open-faced helmets for the rider who is claustrophobic in a full-faced model. Plus, I smoke while I ride my GoldWing, and one cannot do that with a full-faced helmet, no way, no how.
The helmet (size XL) is just a little bit on the large size, as there is a gap in helmet sizes and my head circumference, as instructed to measure -- is in the gap. Ya' might know. Well, better a little too large than a little too small...
Although there are vents for air flow, I always wear a Slik before putting on my helmet, which keeps the sweat off the helmet lining; it's warmer in winter and cooler in summer. But it also prevents any of the airflow from the vents from getting to my scalp.
All in all, I'm quite satisfied with this helmet.
Yes, I recommend this product.
