I'm happy with them so far.
One minor complaint: At about 50 mph and up to about 60 mph, they sing a bit. Any slight leaning, like minor stearing corrections, the singing stops. Definitely a strait line thing. If I wear
Try raising the front tire pressure a couple of pounds.

larry31,
I always run and suggest to others, always run 2 psi More in the skinny front tire than the wider rear tire. At least up to the maximum load limits and air pressures listed on the tire sidewalls.

Some are just totally amazed how much difference it makes in the handling characteristics, for the better!
Maybe it will do the same for road noise.

I kind of like a little road 'music' from my tires. Tho I will admit I do prefer to hear them in the corners. A riding buddy/customer had a Dunlop 606 Rear tire that was totally 'Obnoxious' if it was anywhere near me! And I wear ear plugs!!!

First ride 2016

80 mile ride, March 9, 2016. Ya' Hoo !!

New install of Eagle Mike's front fork brace, and lowering the OEM fender down on top of the brace, makes bike much stiffer.
Tight turning is better, highway speeds track nice and straight.
Didn't get chance to try in high winds, I'm quite happy I put it on.

I don't think I'll mount the AcerBis fender I bought. Any one want one?
