DaveO430 used to run Michelin Primacy Alpin RF tires,
and I still do. They were getting hard to find because they are an all season tire, and only stocked in the fall/winter seasons. So, I bought two of them.
I think the 2nd one is going to be out of date before I wear out the one that is on the bike now.
It still looks like new, and has 14,000 miles on it.
It is a great tire, feels similar to the E3 that was on it before....
Except that it wants to stand up in the corners and go straight....
Once you get used to that, you forget what kind of tire is on the bike.
I really enjoy that hydroplaning is a thing of the past, not so with E3 tires. There was an E3 on the rear of my 1800 and it slid out sideways on me at least six times before I took it off. Never again, will I run a so called m/c tire on the rear of an 1800. They are just simply too dangerous IMO for me.
I ride with a hard throttle and the E3 will go sideways doing that...
With the RF Michelin, I can ride around my six acres of wet grass with impunity, not so with the E3 that was on it. It would just dig in and make ruts in the ground.
