Another prefers the Pirelli Night Dragon to the Dunlop Elite 3, handles in wet better, feedback amazing. On a 2006 Dyna, on third set, work well in wet and dry, great grip, get 12-15k miles per set. On a 2013 FXDB, expect to get 10-11k miles, awesome grip, rate wet handling 8 of 10. Another prefers over the Screaming Eagle Dunlop on 2006 HD Street Bob, much cheaper, traction is excellent.
