Harley Long-Rider 13’s Story

Tire Rating: 
Tires: MICHELIN® Scorcher®
Motorcycle: Harley-Davidson® Street Glide, Ultra Classic, Springer Softail and Dyna Super Wide Glide
Annual Mileage: 10,000+
Location: Springfield, Louisiana

I have been riding for over 40 years and have used just about every brand of street tire available. I currently own 4 Harleys and use Michelin tires on all of them. They all have performance upgrades with the Street Glide dyno’ing at over 104hp. I’m usually lucky to get 5k miles out of a back tire. I do ride HARD and FAST so that is to be expected. I recently installed a Scorcher on the front and rear of my Glide and am extremely happy with the performance and wear. I’ve got over 2500 miles on the tires and they are both wearing very slowly. I think I might get over 8k on the rear tire which in my book is outstanding. Here in Louisiana the weather changes in a heartbeat and these tires grip the road in all conditions. I highly recommend these tires. You definitely get what you pay for.

    Tires: MICHELIN® Commander® II
    Motorcycle: Yamaha 1100 Star
    Annual Mileage: <1,000
    Location: Riverside, California

    Put a Commander II on the front of the heavy Yamaha 1100 start classic, wow night and day
 diff. Cornering, freeway stable. But of course it replaced an old Pirelli, I don’t recall the
 model. But best money I spent on tires with Michelin.

    I have had no issues with the Anakee III, would buy them again.
 Drove my bike from Ontario to the BMW Rally in Utah Salt Lake City and they handled great on and off road.

    Tires: MICHELIN® POWER RS
    Motorcycle: Kawasaki ZX6R
    Annual Mileage: <1,000
    Location: Selma, Texas

    I have been running the Michelin Power RS on my zx6r since December and loved every moment I’ve had on them. Recently I have been only doing track days at a local track called Harris Hill (H2R) and have noticed a big difference in my lap time dropping, and the difference in front end feel I’m getting going into the corner. All I can say is you have to try out these tires if you haven’t already!
