As a rule of thumb I'm a michelin pilot road III fan but, were talking cruiser tires. When I bought my Vulcan 1600 classic 6 months ago; I never knew how much fun it would be to ride a cruiser. I own four bikes (Kawasaki zx-14, cbr 1100, & a Suzuki bandit 1200. All of which ride on the aformentioned tires. Now cruisers are a whole new world to me and I figured let me go with the oem tires. Well what a great choice & what a great value for the combo. I just bought a set of tires for the price of one rear sport touring tire and I'm pleased to say that the tires far exceeded my expectations. The bike rides better than when I bought the bike (with 302 miles) and shows all the signs of getting better gas mileage and, tire wear. Any one looking for a good tire at a great price needs to look at the bridgestone exedra. You won't be disappointed.
