Dunlop RS3 impression
Although I haven’t put too many miles on my Dunlop RS3 tires yet, I really like how they feel. They balanced without using hardly any weights and the are real smooth at highway speed. Of course I recommend purchasing at RockyMountain for the best price and great service

Very Good Tires
I've had these on for he past couple thousand miles and they are very good so far. Minimal tread wear so far but I do mainly highway driving commuting to and from work. Handling and grip are excellent, but have not tried them in the rain yet. They seem to tip over much quicker than the Contimotions I had on previously but have much better grip. I will definitely purchase these again.

Feel Great So Far
Just have about 500 miles on these so far, but so far they are doing great on my 2009 FZ6. Previous tires have been Michelin PR2s and Pirelli Angel GTs, and these RS IIIs feel at least as good as either of those. I haven't ridden them in wet conditions yet, and with only 500 miles can't speak to how they will last, so I'm holding back the 5th star due to those unknowns. Here's what I can say about them though:

My daily commute is over 100 miles a day, about 30% country roads in the Sierra Foothills, about 30% crosstown traffic, and about 40% freeway. The RS IIIs run really smooth everywhere, smoothest feeling tire I've had on this bike.

Living in the Sierra Foothills, I get to ride the twisties every day, and so far these RS IIIs have been great. I feel completely confident they will hold any lean angle I am able to put them to. Braking and acceleration are solid, with no surprises.

These are replacing Pirelli Angel GTs, which were the best tires I have had on this bike, and so far, these RS IIIs are at least as good. Hopefully they will live up to Dunlop's claims of long life, and performance that doesn't fall off as the tires wear.

Great Tires for Sport Touring!
This is my second set of RS III’s that I’ve had on my Yamaha FJR1300. I just returned from a 1,300-mile trip where I got to, again, put the tires to a test on a variety of surfaces/conditions. I am impressed with the consistency of grip and road-feel on these tires! I did a lot of technical twisties on this trip along with high-speed sweepers and straights in triples. I always felt confident in these situations; the RS III’s are a great tire!

3rd set
This is my third set of these tires and I can't say enough good about them. They are every bit as good as the higher priced tires & work extremely well with better over all life expectancy

Perfect Tire for Large Sport Touring Bikes
Just installed a pair of these tires on my 2003 ST1300 while riding around the Pacific North West. Logged somewhere around 4000 miles on them so far.

We all know the ST is a large, and heavy (by anyone's standards) sport touring bike. These tires felt amazing at 41+PSI, below that the front just fell into corners and felt unstable.

The dry grip is superb, where the old RoadSmart 2 tires would feel vague right at the limit of traction, these just stick.

Wet grip is on par with the Pr4's, not sure if I would say it's better, but it is on par. Which is saying a lot!

Tread life, not as much as I had expected, probably 1000 miles or so more than the previous set of Rs2's I had on the bike, same load, riding style (very aggressive) etc. I expect these tires to go somewhere around 5500 miles before needing replacement. The Rs2's needed to be replaced at 4500 miles, they were on the carcass rubber. The ST was loaded with camping gear, tools etc for a 1.5 month trip.

All in all, a better tire than the Rs2's, and the wet grip is now on par with a Pilot Road 4.

Excellent buy in my book!
Will be purchasing again!
