Hey, I got Elite IIIs, he's talking about IIs. I notice he's using Metzelers not Bridgestones.Jack Joyce wrote:Hey Jack Joyce :waving: You better tell exavid that. :weightlifter:1500 with Metzelers 880s front and back and get about 20,000 miles on each one. I had Dunlop Elites on it before and got 24,000, but I didn't like the way they behaved.
Sorry, this poor old befuddled geezer got Chris' and Jack Joyce's posts confused. However in defence of EIIIs I've now ridden 800 miles on mine, rain and shine, and am happy with them. Around these parts we have many draw bridges, railroad tracks (they especially like to put tracks in the middle of curves in the road) and a lot of grooved and rutted pavement. I haven't had anything but satisfaction with the new Dunlops so far.Jack Joyce wrote:Hey Jack Joyce :stumped: Will you try and explain that to exavid the "Senior Guru" He seems to think that your talking about Elite "2" :doh:My Dunlop E IIIs felt really squirrely on scarified pavement.
Yep you're right, I'm typing this on my wireless keyboard attached to my handlbars. I don't work but this week I managed to mow my 3/4 acre with a push mower, haul my daughter's household goods from her apartment to my shop for temporary storeage, replace the alternator on my truck, overhaul a neighbor's furnace, and pour a couple yards of concrete for another neighbor. Oh yeah, managed to ride my Wing too! I think you're right, I'm going to have to go back to work to get some rest.exavid wrote:Hey exavid :leprechaun: I dont know where you get the time to put 800 miles on those tyres, :stumped: because your never off this forum. :clapper:Have you no work to go to. :stumped:I know your 62 but you should still be working untill your at least 75. :weightlifter:However in defence of EIIIs I've now ridden 800 miles on mine, rain and shine, and am happy with them.
