I was searching online last night for front and rear for my 06 VRSCA. After reading all the reviews on the ME888's and I couldn't seem to find much of anything.

My local bike guy swears by those Michelins, I put one on the back last year and love it so far.

Great selection and prices. Living in South Florida we have many dealers, motorcycle shops, etc. I know several of the owners and no one can touch their prices. I ship directly to the shop and then pay for the mounting. Been using them for over 10 years now.

fitted a bridgestone h50 120/70/19 12 months ago. 17000 kms,(most kms i have ever got out of a tyre!!) might get another 1000 if i'm lucky. good tyre, no scares, even when wet. will get another and will try a rear 180/55/18 next as the dunlop D207 has only done 5000 and it wont last much longer.

Okay, since I've used Bridgestone Excedras with success for several years now; that Bridgestone Battlecruise H50 tire interests me.

I looked it up (here) and the 180/55-18 rear,(for my "R"), is an H rated Bias ply tire.

I'm not one to mix bias & radial tires.

Damned shame, it seems my quest for a reasonably priced, longer mileage tire continues.

Their front tire 120/70-19 and the 240/40-18 rear tire for VRod fitment are radials.
