Default pirelli tires

Well after a great 16 thousand miles it is now time to say goodbye to the dunlops and try out some night dragons. They will be delivered Monday. Little excited can't wait to see how the bike will handle

Cool more options! I like the Bridgestones but they were a little faster than the E3's so I thought about the Michelin Commanders until I heard they suck in the rain. If your results are good I'll probably go the Pirelli route next since I've only got about 6000 left to go on my current stones (hopefully that will get me into summer).

I don't know who told you the commanders suck in the rain, I put a set on the wife's old Shadow and the on my XC. They handle great in the rain, much better than the stock E3's, and being from the great northwet believe me when I say I've been caught in a few rain storms.

Default night dragons yes!

put a set on my 13 hammer, 240 out back, totally transformed the handling, highly recommended! do not expect them to last even driving conservatively. steering is easier + bike loves to turn!

I'm still on my stock Dunlop but plan to use the Night Dragon when the time comes. I have them on my other bikes and love how they handle. Much more feedback, great grip and easier turn in. They last almost as long as the Dunlops.

Set of night dragons on my 2011 Kingpin. Radial rear and biased front. SUPER pleased, wet and dry. Oh, when changing.... drop the weights and go with dyna beads. Cannot beat them for high speed stability.

Maybe I should have changed the tires sooner?
