This is my 2nd rear Michelin Commander II. I average 15,000 miles a year on my bike. It is my only ride. I ride a 2005 Ultra Classic Electraglide. The factory tire was OK, but the mileage sucked. I was told to try the (Name Redacted) and barely got 8k on the tire and the wet weather traction sucked. Doing some research I found the Michelin Commander II and decided to give it a try. Now mind you I ride in Central Florida and haul a lot of weight on the bike, so the weight and the heat bear a factor on the tire wear. I got over 11,000 miles on the tire and the wet weather traction was awesome up to the last bit of tread where it gave me some slippage, but without trad it will do that. I was so impressed I replaced both the front and back in a set this time using the Michelin Commander II. and in 11k to 12k I will return to replace the rear tire again with Michelin.
