New tires from Bridgestone

Seems interesting, but time, price, sizing and someone buying and using them for a year or so will tell.

I wouldn't know what to do if I got anywhere close to 20k on a tire. My Fatboy eats em up at a rate of around 5-7k. I'm hoping my Shark does better than that but no way did I ever figure on getting 18k on a tire. If they stand up that would be amazing to me.

Yeah, the first sizes won't be available for a few months yet, and the rest of the sizes in 2018.

I got around 12,000 on the stock rears on my '14 Super Glide, and I got 18,000 on the rear stock Dunlops on my '15 RGS. Coming up on 25,000 on the front, and it's just about done. Was happy with that, but I think I might go with Commander II's next time, just to give them a try.

I've been real pleased with the stock Dunlopes on my 2015 RGS.
I usually use Metzler's but these Dunlopes are great on the road and in the canyons. The Dunlopes seem to get decent mileage as well.

I always got 17k out of the OEM Dunlops, before I switched to Michelin Commanders. The last set I got 25k on the front & 18k on back before it picked up a screw. Check pressure often. I'd be pissed only getting 7k out of tires.

originals changed out at 14k and just turned 28k and they are needing replacements.will wait until spring.
making those left hand curves and you hear the tire humming,its time to change .by looking at them,they seem ok.
dunlops again will be mounted.
