I've been riding for decades and have put hundreds of thousands of miles on my bikes. In the last few years, I put a Dunlop Elite 3 tire on my 1993 Goldwing, and noticed right away that it seems a little unstable in the rain, or quick stops. I was riding on a beautiful summer day, with no rain or anything else that could have affected the road, when I started down a hill in a town, at 30 kph. I saw the traffic was pretty thick at the bottom so I touched my brakes and, before I knew what was happening, I found the back tire had swung around and was almost in front of me, before I even had a chance to react to it. Trying to get control of the bike, I got thrown off, and slid, on my back down the hill till I hit the curb with my shoulder. I was grabbed almost immediately by an off duty peramedic who figured my neck was broken and wouldn't let me up. I was paralized on my left side for over six weeks because of this accident and I had just taken collision off the bike less than a week earlier, so I couldn't even put a claim into my insurance. Since a Goldwing has a warning sticker inside the trunk that says not to let your Center Tread wear down below .06 mm deep, or the tire becomes a danger on the road, I was wondering why, since Goodyear bought Dunlop, they would make a tire that has no center tread on it? The Dunlop Elite 3 tires is basically running a slick on pavement and tends to wander when it's going down the road. I did try to get a recall done on those tires but a man from the M.T.O. actually told me over the phone that if it was a car or truck tire, they would have reacted on it right away, but because it was a motorcycle tire, it was, "Buyer Beware." They don't police motorcycle tires the same way they do cars and trucks so he literally told me that it was too bad my bike got totalled but they wouldn't even look at the tire to see if it was a danger on the road. I have driven hundreds of thousands of miles on my bikes, and even helped to start the GWTA in Barrie Ontario. I couldn't believe I got this reaction from the M.T.O. but I did, and I lost my bike, along with the ability to ride again because my hips were screwed as well. I recently go a new hip put in so I bought a 1982 Goldwing, and ride a lot again. I'm writing this question to try to warn other bikers about these tires, but have hit a brick wall from a lot of bikers, because they haven't had an accident yet, with those tires, so they call me a liar and tell me it must have been my fault that the bike did that. I am known as one of the safest riders in the GWTA when I was in it, and really get annoyed at these riders who don't know what they are talking about, but yet, they have the warning signs in their own bikes that say these tires are a hazard.
