Comments about Dunlop K70 Vintage Motorcycle Tire:
These tires replaced the Avon Skid Masters on my Royal Enfield G5. Everything improved, Ride, Steering, Handling (the push was gone), Traction, Off Road, everything but tread life. The rear tire is good for about 4000 miles. The front lasts a lot longer. But for the price, they are well worth it. I'm on my third set and still loving them.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Perfect for Classics
I have a '64 Triumph Bonneville and Dunlop K70s are perfect for that "period look". These were replacements for a previous set of K70s (those were made in Japan). Yes, these are made in Indonesia but I have Michelins made in Thailand too. Go figure. At any rate the price was right and shipping was incredibly fast. The only complaint is with the overall appearance of the tires. I understand appearance is down the list of important tire qualities, but on a classic appearance carries a bit more weight. As mentioned by a previous reviewer there were a lot of "whiskers" left over from the production process. Not just on the tread where they'll quickly get worn off, but along the sidewalls as well. Also there was some kind of residue from production that was almost impossible to clean off. Minor points, true enough, but they might be important to you.
Fantastic tire for a vintage motorcycle
I put these tires on a 1970 Honda SL175 and they look fantastic. I don't use the bike off road; it's a vintage motorcycle that I only ride on the street to vintage motorcycle shows and club meetings and running around town and occasionally to work. The profile is a little higher than the original knobbies that were standard on the bike but they make the little enduro look tough and the tread pattern is very retro/ vintage. Very good handling and ride. They look true to period and are acceptable for a 1970 enduro. Very happy with these tires on my old motorcycle.

They go very well with the look of the bike, the ride is very smooth, great in the rain and in a couple more months I will tell you how they do in the snow :-) will add pics later
