I needed a rear tire for my CTX1300. Found a Michelin Commander II on Amazon for$171. When I went to order it the price was $200(200/55/17)
Found a (175/55/R17) for $56. Couldn't resist. Got it today and I like what I see. Will update in a few months.

Looks like the price is rising.

The gl1800 group have posted getting 24k-40k miles with good handling at 1/4 the price. I got 8k on my OEM back tire. Already replaced front $208 installed. Thought I'd be the test pilot.

Finally had to replace factory tires at 6000 miles. The car tire definitely handles differently. you have to muscle the bike over in a turn. hope i get used to it soon.

Achilles ATR-k Economist All-season Radial 175/55-17 Amazon about $$48
I let the tire pressure slip down to about 30lbs and the ride and cornering improved. Went back to 40lbs. Now, when the ride and cornering improve I know to add air. Happy so far.
