Amen Bro. Bought my EN500C w/only 1700 mi on bike. Dunlops front & rear. Both wore out at 5k-6k miles.

In God we trust. All others pay cash.

I recommend Bridgestones, specifically 100/90-19 Exedra G721 for the front, and 150/90-15 Exedra G526 for the rear. I have gotten 20,000+ miles out of these tires. I had two rear Metzeler ME880 rear tires fail after only a few thousand miles when a large chunk of rubber came off the tread. I just bought a set of these tires for my recently acquired 1997 VN750.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
