if you aren't in a big hurry, you could try revzilla.  if you buy one tire, for every $100 you spend, you get $5 in 'zilla bucks'.  so a back tire would get you $10.  they are credited to your account when it ships.  you could then order a front tire, and have that $10 applied to your order.  (if you're gonna go this route, make sure you aren't missing out on a manufacturers rebate.  i got $60 back from avon).

they ship very quickly, and free over $39 too.  i ordered my tires on a thurs. and had them by the next tues.

Guys around here seem to all be buying Dunlop's from Amazon. 2 Day shipping and depending on where you live no tax. The last time I bought tires the local guy here mounted and balanced them for $20 each. I carried the wheels and tires in after removing them myself.

Check out jpcycles.com too.

It pays to really compare. Sometimes Michelins on one site are more expensive than another, yet the Dunlops run cheaper. I've found some helmets on JP less expensive than Revzilla. Same with tires. I'm not sure why that is.

I don't know from personal experience about the performance between the 2 but I seem to get a couple thousand miles more wear out of the Dunlop/Harley 407 & 408s with zero performance issues, than my friends (3 of them) that use Michelin Commander II's. We have similar bikes, weight and riding styles. When it's all said and done I'm about $650 after my dealers discount including mounting and balancing and taxes, and shop rates around here are over $120 an hr. I've had really good luck with the OE tires (other than a couple of nails) and easily average 16 to 18k with them.

Hope this helps,

Kelly

Man I must really be pushing the hell out of my tires on my 2015 CVOSG as I am on my 2nd set of OEM tires at 15K Miles and the back tire is already feathered badly like the first tire.  I swear it is the large block pattern of the OEM rear that can not withstand the stress that is causing the feathering. I check the air before every ride so I know it is not air pressure.
