Default Interesting fact

I was looking at tires to replace my rear tire after it picked up a nail. What I found out is, the Dunlop D401 with the Harley script on the sidewall was roughly $130.00, the Dunlop D404 is the exact same tire minus the Harley script on the sidewall price= $60.00. Just thought i'd post and maybe save somebody a few $$.

Jim I have seen the sticky and have bought from him, never had any problems, I know others have though. I wasn't posting ACM specifically, just giving a heads up so maybe when you go to your local tire place to get a tire you can inquire about the D404, and maybe save yourself a few greenbacks.

That must be my problem!!! I stripped everything off of my bike that says HD, I like a nice clean looking ride without advertising for HD. I love HD's, but just not into plastering HD all over my ride, some people do and that's cool also.
