I just bought a 2008 Ultra Classic with 11,000 miles and have put about 4000 on it in the last couple months since I got it. Nice scoot, if a bit underpowered. It has Harley tires on it, and I'm not impressed at all. Still acceptable tread, and I'm sure it's original rubber with miles that low. Anyway, last sunday, I almost bit the dust when I hit a patch of very new blacktop patch when it was raining. Back end came right out, and I recovered. I know the new patchs are a bit slick, but in forty years of riding, I've never had the back end go out that darn quick. So....who made Harley tires in 2008?? I'll need new ones very soon before a trip to AZ in a month. I'll get Metzlers or Avons, I do believe..never had one problem with good tires.
