Any thoughts on Michelin Commander II?

I see these come in stock size, and claim to have long tread life. Anyone ever try these?

That's a heavy cruiser tire. I think when you lay into the throttle the traction control will be working hard to keep it from melting in a dangerous way. I like Michelin but I'll do PP or 2CT max on this bike. I did PR2's on my 14 and they were squirrely but OK for commuting. If you do try em might want to turn up TC to match the traction you'll get.

...this guy seems to love em :-)

Yeah I noticed that afterwards. I ordered the Diablo Rosso Corsas. I was hoping to get the Rosso II's but they don't come in the stock size.

I have mentioned these tyres previously Metzler M7RR are a good fit for the H2.Well I like them ,have done 1,500 ks on them and solid as ,also look like I will get some decent ks out of them.Not that that worries me stability and feel ,traction are my main concerns and so far so good.
