    Question 1 -Noticed that I’m showing. Going to replace both. I’m sure it’s a common subject but what are the best all around tires. It’s got 12K and I recently put 5k on in the last 4 months. I’m sure they’re the OG’s. I’m in NC so all year riding including lots of twisties and 2ups. Question 2-...

    So, I had new E3 tires put on my bike last summer. I thought the performance and mileage were okay, but recently noticed the rear tire was at the wear bars. I thought, What is that? 15,000 miles? That's okay. When I did the math, I found the rear wore out at 6,800 miles. The front is near the...

    I ordered my tires on line. Got the Bridgestone set. Called to find someone to change them. Got a price of $275 from Mountain Motorsports. Yes I asked again to make sure. Did not use them, duh. I found this small shop close to my home in Powder Springs. Walk-er-Ride Motorcycles. They changed...

    I'm on my third set of tires on my 2012 Wing. Trying a Dunlop E3 in the back and like the faster steering. But soon I'll need a front tire. The current front Bridgestone feels good with the E3. Just wonder if I should buy another Stone, or try the full E3 experience. I usually ride within 10...

    Just got back from three days of riding and camping with a bunch of BMW GS riders. We rode on roads with names like, The Rattler, The Back of the Dragon, The Snake and one just called The Crooked Road. No problem keeping up with the Beamers and had a great time! It rained on and off but it did...

    Sorry if this is a repeat post - can scarcely believe it hasn't been discussed, but didn't find a thread with a forum search. I have 10k on the first set of OEM 'Stones on my 2012 Wing and will need to replace at least the rear tire before too many more thousand miles. This is my fourth Wing...

    Due to misfortune, so I thought, I was forced to put a Harley Davidson tire D407 on the rear wheel after my E3 separated. HD dealer was only place open in remote mountain area at the time. However, the tire has lasted 29,000 miles - far past the E3's I have put on my bike. The width is slightly...

    I'm having another set of Bridgestone tires put on my 2012. They lasted me about 8,000 miles. The front was down to the wear bars. The rear was almost there. My question is, how do you scrub in the tires? Last year, I took the Ride Like a Pro Course as a way to get used to the bike and scrub...

    I had new tires put on before my trip to Texas and some local riding. Upon leaving for the AGWA rally in Springfield, MO I had about 2K on the tires (Bridgestone G709 front @ 28psi and a PA3 in the rear @ 32psi). This part of the trip was me and a Neosho 19 trailer (loaded with wife's stuff)...

    Hey folks... I'm in need of some experienced advice. I just switched to a new set of Bridgestone Exedras for the wing. I switched from a throughly worn out set of Elite 3s (~18K miles) and also went from a 70 series to a 60 series rear. OMG! This feels like a completely different bike...

    Presently I am running a G709 on the front and the 180/70R-16 (77V) Bridgestone Exedra Max on the rear. Here is a description I found of the Exedra Max: "The specific rubber compound on Bridgestone's Exedra Max Cruiser and Touring tire lasts for miles and miles. The tire profile's unique wide...

    How many people change both tires at the same time? I had a 2005 and changed both tires out (e3s) every 15,500 miles. I put a total 85,000 miles on it. Now I'm wondering if that's necessary.
