Kevin B on Aug 18, 2019
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
I have a set of Night Dragons on my FXDC and they work great.
Richard L on Aug 1, 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.
Putting 240 radial on back, 90/90 bias on front. 2007 Vegas Jackpot. No radial for front, is this going to be a problem?
A shopper on Jun 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for the question. This depends on the machine. Many manufactures run a mixed set up from factory, so you should be completely fine. When there is a mix, the bias ply is in the front, 9 times out of 10. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll-free at 1-888-339-3888. We are always more than happy to help.
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. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll-free at 1-888-339-3888. We are always more than happy to help.

alan s on May 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question Alan! The V stands for speed rating of the tire, the speed rating V is 149 mph. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll free at 1-888-339-3888.

Like I was on a different bike. Only have 500 miles on them so I can't comment on how well they hold up with wear.
The ride is such a drastic improvement that I will buy these again even if I only get half the miles compared to the Dunlop tires that came on my 2011 Street Glide.

So far GREAT!
I'm in agreement with the other reviews i've read regarding these tires. An amazing upgrade. Maybe it's because my other tire was old, maybe it's the quality of this one. There is a huge improvement in handling and grip. i scrape floorboards now more than i ever have because i get such a great grip with this tire. i've put about 600 miles on it so far and have zero complaints.

Awesome Tires!
I mounted these tires on a set of enforcer rims then put them on a 2015 Road King. The difference between the original Dunlops and the Night Dragons is like night and day. The bike used to twitch back and forth on the freeway rain grooves and catch on every crack where the freeway has been added onto. Now you don't even know they are there!! The handling in corners is also fantastic, it just leans over as smooth as glass and sticks to the road. Don,t know about the mileage yet but if its not as long its worth it.

I can corner like a demon with these. In my entire life I have never felt the difference in a tire change like this one. Night and day. And if you are a cornering speed freak like me, you will love them. No more fight my Vrod through a corner. Bad to the bone!
