I put these on my full fairing-ed 1978 Honda GL 1000 touring bike. I was unsure about them as I had always been a Dunlop guy. The Elite 2 were on it before and lasted a really long time. Unlike the Elite 2's these Bridgestone's have really good cornering ability. This is mostly due to the more round nature of the tire as opposed to the more flat Elite series. Definitely recommend as long as they last!
