After long days in the saddle on the original DL1000 seat I would have shooting pain in my back. I modified the seat and it bought me a little more time in the seat. I wanted more, as in all day. I haven't taken an all day ride on the seat yet but the few two hour rides I've taken in the twisties have me thinking it's not going to be a problem. On the old seat, after about a half hour I'm standing to relieve pressure. Now, I don't even think about it and when I get home, all I can think about is how much fun the ride was, not about the sore spots and tingling nerves in my legs. Love it so far. Taking a ride to Reno this weekend, we'll see how it goes.

Michelin Anakee 3 Tires The replacement for the crowd favorite Anakee 2 tires has arrived! Michelin has vastly improved the Anakee in many ways including wear, feedback and wet weather performance. The Michelin Anakee 3 Tires are a further blend of long tread life, balance and rugged adventure. Features Performance that lasts mile after mile with a new silica tread compound yields even more mileage compared to MICHELIN Anakee 2 tires Innovative tread pattern inhibits irregular wear patterns, while evacuating water, dirt and mud Transverse grooves efficiently evacuate water for dependable wet-weather grip Beveled lateral grooves help shed mud and gravel when riding off-road Enhanced ride qualities and tire architecture engineered for easy maneuverability and precise handling Amazing stability and rider feedback, thanks to a new high-rigidity casing Indented tread grooves help to provide consistent lateral grip even as the tire wears Excellent wet traction and an innovative silica tread compounds offer the best balance between grip and durability Distinctive tread pattern pulls water away from the contact patch Note Anakee 3 tires are Bias Ply unless otherwise noted (e.g. 110/80R19 59H is a Radial Tire). TT indicates Tube Type Tire.

I only have a few hundred miles on them but I've ridden them under all conditions already (minus snow and Ice, we don't get much of that here). Good dirt and gravel tractions, sticks great in the twisties, not loud on the freeway, and good and stable in heavy downpours on surface streets after the first rain in months. I may upgrade the scores later but for now, I've put 4's because something better exists, I just haven't found it yet. Oh, they look great on the bike too.

Michelin Commander 2 Rear Tires Peformance Features Unrivaled tire life Michelin tests with a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Classic prove a rear 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 grip 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 200/55R17 tire is a radial tire.

I put 6000 miles on my bike in the last four months. I've put about 500 miles on these tires since I got them a week ago. Amazing difference the new tires make in cornering and overall control of the bike. Asphalt snakes aren't as scary in the turns anymore for one. We'll see how they wear, I'm hoping for at least 15k. The 20k they are touting would be awesome!
