    I happen to like the Dunlop Elite 3's. I got 14,000 out of my last rear tire running a MU90/B16. I have never got more than 9-10,000 before with others. They handle all types of pavement including grooved very well and handle rain very well too. Do an internet search on them and you will find people saying a lot of good things about them.

    I have a 09 FLHR bought new for me and now 19500 miles on it. The stock wide tire and front tire are doing good enough Yet so I don't know how many more miles left on them but each time I look,,,,,,,Still Lots of safe rubber left..

    I don't do a lot of Freeway and very seldom much over 60... I do ride 2 up about 1/4 of the miles and mostly on older two lanes but occasional freeway..

    I never had a rear tire go so long as this one,,, Stock on harley...

    I will replace them with the same tires and hopefully get the same Good mileage out of the New ones...

    My 08 Road Glide got 18500 on the first rear tire and a little over 16000 on the second and still had a little left. The second had a 6800 mile trip to the west coast and back, 2 up and pulling a trailer.

    I got a Michelin Commander from Jake Wilson on sale and am running that now. It seems to be holding up good.
