Just replaced the rear with a new original spec Dunlop and I am amazed what a difference it made to the handling. With the old tire she hated white lines, scratches in the direction of travel (like rain grooves) and seams between pavement slabs. She would shake her head and twitch around all over the place. Old tire was >>ten years old by the date code and just about on the wear markers, guess it was a little harder than the new one!

I will be the first to say this, but not likely the last..

ANY motorcycle tire more than 6 yrs from manufacture is playing russian roulette.. when (not if) the pop, you go down. Just glad you got rid of it before it did
