I put these on my BMW R1100S. Prior to using these I was experiencing very uneven wear on dual compound tires from another manufacturer. So I wanted to stay away from dual compound. Although these tires are recommended for heavy touring models I chose these for my boxer cup replica since it is a pretty heavy bike. I love them! Cornering and swooping turns are very smooth and grippy. There's a smooth roll when you transition to the sidewall and back up straight again. I highly recommend them, and dealing with Motosport was a pleasure.

This is a great tire and a great buy. The price and ease of the website is unmatched. Super fast shipping. Will absolutly do business again with Motosport.com
My son told me about these tires, smooth riding excellent tread pattern and are wearing very well. I have almost 70,000 miles on my 2003 Honda Shadow Ace and wanted a tire I wouldn't need to change every season, it looks like I finally found it.
these tires are great bought 2 sets for both my bikes performance is outstanding
Best price I found anywhere. Arrived on time. Customer service was excellent with questions I had. Will definatley buy from again.
After reading many reviews on this tire, I had to make a purchase. The tire performs very well, the rough, grooved roads don't yank the bike as the old tires did. The tire performs with its brother in the rear very well on strong cross winds, don't need as much lean. The wet weather use is minimal, the bike did perform well though. I highly recommend the tire.
We have been running 880's on my 2008 BMW K1200 GT and my wife 2006 Yamaha FJR 1300 for longer roads trips (7-10,000 miles) to avoid costly tire changes on the road.
The harder compound of the 880 has reduced road punctures to one in well over 200,000 miles and when we are running a more performance orientated tires we definitely get more road debris punctures.
I began running bias belt 880's on my 2001 BMW 1150 GS for Long distance events and have been satisfied with them.
