    I had a couple sets of Metzler 880 on the sporty and liked them. Last set got some cracking I didn't like the looks of. I went with the Dunlop American Elite at a good price and MADE IN USA. Like them so far. I think they ride softer than the 880s. They did fine down on the dragon, but so did the 88os. No trouble in the rain with either. I really just went for MADE IN USA and have not been disappointed.

    On the Buell I put Michelin Pilot Powers on. They were nice but didn't last long. I didn't expect them to though. The front cupped but I am not sure the cause. I was looking at PR4s as a replacement, but may opt for Dunlops for the Buell as well. Made in USA means a lot to me.

    I went with the stock Dunlop again never had complaints about them. I got it at the beginning of the season had 15k on them the front was fine and the dealer had them for $197 installed. I really wanted to keep the same tire on front and back so may consider Michilin next time.

    No it was Brighton but that was a few months ago. I do think Motor City just ran a similar deal.
