Dunlop Roadsmart II Front Tires Sport-touring riders constitute a very experienced and savvy sector of the motorcycling scene, and they continue to place a premium on multiple tire expectations Outstanding wet-weather performance, linear and responsive handling traits, traction characteristics on par with sport tires and extended tread life - all in one tire. All of these qualities were present in the popular first-generation Roadsmart, and now these virtues have been elevated in the new Roadsmart II to create a higher level of performance for the long-haul crowd. Immediately evident is the new tread pattern on both front and rear Roadsmart II tires. The front tire still incorporates Dunlops readily recognized cosecant-curve groove pattern. The shape and placement of these grooves are newly designed to promote even tire wear up front, and they also stiffen the pattern for reduced tire squirm and extended tire life. Additional grooves also help improve wet-weather performance thanks to a greater sea-to-land ratio that helps promote water dispersion. Features New tread rubber compounds include silica to help deliver impressive performance in wet conditions while also extending wear New cosecant-curve tread pattern helps promote even tire wear and stiffens the pattern for reduced tire squirm and extended tire longevity Increased tread depth further promotes water channeling while also extending tire mileage Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) intuitively allows greater latitude in line choice while cornering and provides remarkably linear steering at various lean angles, and puts down a bigger footprint at extreme lean angles, for enhanced grip and handling

Got 6000 miles on the last set. Not great but about average for me. Good traction and good ride. I like the even wear. Not much flat spotting in the center even with a fair amount of slab miles.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Was considering the smh10. Very glad i stumbled on this unit. Smaller size, lower price, and still excellent sound quality. I tired a model 10 that a friend had first. This unit is much less obtrusive. Don't even know it is there. Have listened to music, taken and made phone calls, and used intercom both passenger and bike to bike. All very easy to use and worked flawlessly.
Highly recommend.
Yes, I recommend this product.
