Dunlop D207 / D208 Tires
The previous tire had some wash in tight corners. This one does not. I would purchase this tire again.

These might be okay for a cruiser but not for a super sport. These were installed on my zzr 600 when I purchased the bike. They have slipped out on me a few times but I have not downed the bike. Two times I was into a corner a bit too much when they were cold so my fault. I have also been to a track three times with them and they were decent when you drop the pressure. They warm up fine and grip okay but are not confidence inspiring. I have used all the back tire though. I wore through these in 2000 miles which is pretty fast. I know I was on a track but I was not pushing all that hard (breaking, accelerating). I find them quite slippery in rain and don't try to lean at all with grit on the road. I have replaced them with a set of Q3's which I love so far.

Great grip, great ride, terrible wear
These tires came stock on my VRod Muscle. I use the bike for both casual rides as well as teaching the BRC and other track-related events. I use the bike as an example to sport bike riders and cruisers alike that it's the rider, not the bike. The Dunlops were a perfect fit for the performance side of the setup. Never lost grip, even under fill power at 30 plus degrees of lean angle. Great ride. Put 3000 miles on them on Hawaii, in the rain with nothing but confidence. BUT....... At 3000 miles, both front and rear tires were completely bald. I am leaving this review as I am shopping to buy another replacement set. The second set of D208's lasted 3,500 miles. I am going to take the bike on a coast to coast trip in a couple weeks, and I'm purchasing a set of the Michelin Commander II to stick on there for the long ride. I'll post a review of them as well after the ride at the beginning of June.

Great looking tire and function.
I put about 4500 miles on this tire in Alaska and it needs a replacement already. I know that our roads are rough, but I am disappointed in its longevity. I have ridden in lots of rain and the tire performs very well. I would just like it to last longer.

I'm really satisfied with this tire.
I have only gotten 250 miles on this tire in the last week, and I'm really impressed with it. The ride is much better than the last tire I had on my bike, all so a Dunlop but a different style. I haven't got caught it the rain yet so I can't say about wet traction. Tread life will have to wait too. If I don't like the tread life I'll try a different tire.
