Can't say I agree with you at all on this one guy's. Tire's make a huge difference as to the handling of my bike (96FXDLHotRod) and I wouldn't even ride the thing one mile with the factory Dunlops installed when I first bought the damned thing. Way too hard a tire for me to have any confidence in my staying on the road in even perfect riding conditions, and you can forget about riding in rain completely when you run those type's of tire's in my opinion anyway's.
Like either the Metzler highend rubber or Perelli's when I can afford them but usually go with the Avon Super Venom line for all around riding safety and performance. The highend rubber stick's to the road much better than any of the less spendy stuff on the market of course but you really do pay for it firstly in the cost of the tire's and by how little milage you get out of a set before having to replace them again compared to the cheaper one's. Only get about 6000k on the good one's before there done but at least you know you can count on them when you need to and to me that's all important when riding a bike. You don't get many second chances on motorcycle's, and there's little enough rubber on the road at the best of time's. Might as well spend more and make it count.

I voted for Metzeler since this is a single choice poll. The Metzeler ME880 is one of the best tyres for cruiser type bikes. I have also got Michelin Commander on the rear of my Vmax which I also find very good. The front is still the Dunlop Qualifier OEM tyre as it is only recently that the Commander is available in the 110/90 x 18 size so I still have to order the front and have it fitted.
