I bought this set to replace my Dunlop 491s that came on my Goldwing. Being cost wary, I shopped a few other sites before I settled here. These tires have a different shape than the Dunlops I had. The Curvature is sharper, meaning the lean geometry changed. The first few curves had me overly cautious, but between the ride and the handling it didn't take long for me to start liking them. They ride smooth and, as long as they are lined up correctly, you won't need to rebalance your wheels. I'm pleased with the performance aspect - they seem to hold more securely ( It could be due to the age of my old tires). The Highways here are a bit chewed up so I was pleased at the way my old Wing handled the roughness with these installed.. A nice deal - at a nice price!!
