Sure do! And it don't matter what you're riding.

Michelin Commander II's.

You can't go wrong!

For my '98 Sidecar rig I just got Bridgestone 709 for the front and Austone Taxi tire for the rear. FYI Bridgestone is offering a rebate which expires this week.

When I bought my GL1500 used it had Dunlop E2s on it. I've used E3s and my last replacement on the front is an E4. My last rear tire lasted 30,000 miles. I see no reason to change. True these tires whine when you lean the bike but so do millenials when they have an outdated iPhone. The whine never bothered me and I'm content to stay with the Dunlop elites.

I had put an Avon AV26 rear tire on the front of mine before the deer hit me. The rear was a dunlop E3. They were doing well. I was planning on a Taxi tire for the rear when the Donlop wore out.

I have Dunlop E4s on my GL1500 And I am pushing around 14k miles on the front and rear and they both look like and tread depth is exceptional. They handle very well on wet pavement too.

I can confirm the wobble on my GL1500 with a Metzeler in front and a Dunlop rear. Didn't had this issues with Dunlop F and R.
Now I put Avon on it, and it's a great ride - with the some miles I did so far this year.
