Dunlop Elite 3 Bias Touring Front Tire
Very Bad Cupping
Had these on my 93 Goldwing. They felt good on the road. Never had any issue with them feeling like they might slip. No problems wet or dry. I did get very bad cupping on the front. The rear also had cupping. Along with that came some pretty hard headshake. It is slightly the nature of the beast, but I felt like it started a whole lot sooner than it should have. I didn't know until I changed them out for Bridgestone G701 and G702's that they had terrible road noise. Now I can actually hear the radio again. Talking with my local Honda dealer, he said he rides with the Bridgestones and a lot of the headshake should go away with these tires. So far so good. It feels like a brand new bike running with the Bridgestones. I don't think I'd ever put them on my bike again.

Best MC tire in the business for touring.
I have ran these tires before on multiple bikes and found them to be the best touring tire in the business.
Neutral steering which leads to effortless cornering due to its rounder shape of the overall tire tread. Very well mannered in handling and very predictable results on varied asphalt terrain, grooved roads and bridges. Exceptional control in wet weather conditions and excellent tread life. I would recommend this tire to anyone who loves to travel long distance or just daily local commutes. It can do it all. Price could be lower but then again you are buying a good quality MC tire.

Reliable and dependable
I have worn out 2 E3s on my 99 Victory Classic Cruiser, so just bought the 3rd from Revzilla. The tread life has been better than the original equipment Dunlop, and the handling is better with the E3. I have ridden in about every kind of weather, and until the tread is about gone, traction is solid.
This tire also has the highest load rating in its size. That is also important to me.

Great balance of mileage and performance
This is my 5th consecutive set of Dunlop Elite 3's on my HD Ultra Classic in the last 4 years. I ride daily as well as tour and have put 76k miles in all kinds of weather and riding conditions on Elite 3's in that time. They provide the best balance of performance and mileage I've found.

could tell a big difference in ride and traction
on the corners and seemed to hold a straight line easier.

High milage, great grip, great wet handling
This tire has good grip and lasted me OVER 16,000mi even though i ride aggressively. I was caught in the rain many times and each time the tire handled great. Revzilla sells it at the cheapest price. My honda dealer and a few other of my local stores were going to charge me over $170 for it.

Best Harley tire for the money
This is my second time purchasing this tire. The first one lasted about 18,000 miles and the gripped better than the stock Dunlops, by far. I doubt you'll beat Revzilla's price for this tire shipped to your door, but if you do, you risk the customer service that often comes with discount parts. It's hard to beat Revzilla.

Great Tires 23K from my last set!
Great tires for lots of riding time between changes. These tires have been all over the USA. They have rode in the snow of Colorado and the hot summer heat in Florida.
