Has any one tried the Michelin Commander? This whole wobble/tire business has got me jumpy. I’ve use Michelin and Cooper tires for years, never had a problem……on cars anyway.

Unfortunately the Michelin Tire is not manufactured for the 1800. I have been searching for the best tire for my bike for the last 5 months......I have went this way and that way.......looked at this tire and that tire.....they even have some fancy new modern technology out there. But the engineers have dropped the ball on load ratings......a lot to consider with a tire........

Everything I find.......the tire with the least of problems.......the the time tested and true tire......always seems to bring me back to Bridgestones.......yes some people and occasional one gets a bad set of these......but overall.........seems to be the tire of choice for many good reasons.......

I am going to order a set next week myself.......set them on the shelf in my garage.....my dunflops are really starting to cup.....will they last me though the Calhoun Run.........maybe......I think they will.......but right after that .....they will be changed.


The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike. A crotch rocket with storage bags.............As for oil I use the slick kind, and I like round tires, but as of late I have found square ones work best on the rear. Pirelli Eufori 195/55/16 @ 32 PSI
