Joe,

Just installed them front and back on my FLHS before going to Daytona. After riding over 1300 miles I will say these tires are great! The handeling is much smoother, much less steering effort. I talked to a guy in Oregon who has put over 6000 miles on with no visible wear. They are definatly worth it. Finally got out again this past weekend and really noticed the handling difference with all the hills and turns. So far I haven't found anything as good. I searched for about 3 months before getting them and other than a few poly tires theymake the only good radial.

I'd really like to hear more about these tires, but can't find any information. Could you maybe post a link to some info?

Thanx

Hi Joe,

I took your advice and installed the Liberty triple trees and they worked great. Thanks for the help.

Last week I also installed three of the Twin Tires on my 2003 FLHTCUI. I know it is hard to believe but the tires did make a big difference in how the bike rides and steers. It has a much smoother ride. They also reduce the steering effort although not nearly as much as the Liberty triple trees. One major improvement is how the bike handles on grooved concrete. The front end does not seem to wonder all over, it’s much more stable. The only down side is that it is much harder to do figure eights while flying the chair. I think this is because the sidewalls are a lot more flexible than the original Dunlop tires.

Jim
