I did a 300 mile ride yesterday on my 2011 XC with new Michelin Commander II's and JTD lower fairing.
OH my gosh what a ride! the tires are better than I could have thought, much better than the OEM Dunlaps tires.
The JTD lowers are awesome, no more wind buffet.
Leaving on a 5 day trip on Saturday on the XC , can't wait.
