i have used these tires on my Fatboy for several years. I love the way my bike handles, the comfort and no road noise. hug the road these are the best tires i have ridden on.
Lorraine L on Aug 5, 2019
This will be my 2nd set of these tires, with just a touch over 10k on my current set on my 2013 HD Switchback. These were a massive step up from the stock tires providing excellent stick in the twisties and wet weather traction. I have aftermarket longer than stock shocks allowing for a little bit better lean angle, and ride the Night Dragons to the edge of the tire and have never worried about grip. <br /><br />If you're looking to bring out the sporting capability of your HD, these are the tires.
Ken D on Aug 4, 2019

Just confirming correct fit for 2005 Kingpin?
A shopper on Oct 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I bought my set of Night Dragons for a 2012 Harley Police Electra Glide and they had the correct size for my application. They are an excellent tire with great handling, smooth ride, and wet traction. They are much better than the factory Dunlops. You should be able to find the correct size for your Kingpin as they listed many different sizes for both front and rear tires and had an extensive list of bikes that they can be used on. I hope this helps you.

Charles N on Nov 1, 2019

W hats the difference from radial and bias ply?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! Radial vs Bias in all in the construction of the tire. The plys on a radial tire are just over the contact point of the tire where the plys on a bias tire are from side wall to side wall. The advantage here is the radial will have more flex and the bias can support heavier loads.

We are always more than happy to help.
