    373 reviews, 4.6 of 5 stars.  On a 1983 Honda Magna, has 12,000 miles and still going strong, handles well in rain, plan to buy another pair.  Another got 12,000 miles, switched to BT-45 for more grip, didn’t like the handling and grip, felt the compound was too hard.  Another has had 3 sets, cupping as the tire starts to wear, get 8,000 miles where other tires get 14,000 miles.  Another got just 4,000 miles.  Another prefers the Pirelli MT66 over the D404.  On a 2009 Vulcan 900 Custom, got 6,200 miles will gentle use on light bike.
