I have run Shinko tires for years, on several different bikes. Never any issues. They are not "cheap", but they are about 1/2 the price of Dunlops, Metzlers, Michelins, etc. They are very well made, on Japanese equipment, formally Yokahama in Korea.
For a big HD touring bike, you want the 777HDs. Run the front at 36 psi, the rear at 44 psi. You will get about 6K miles out of a rear. Why? They are a softer compound, stick like glue, and are great in the wet. Handling is great. The price you pay is decreased mileage.ma,
