Hi, I too have a beautiful VStar 1100. I need tires for the new season coming. I have been researching and have narrowed it down to Michelin Commander II or staying with a new set of Dunlops. I have ridden on the Dunlops for two years and have no complaints but I am also interested in a tire a little more sticky for better handling. What have you decided on? What did your bike come with? And did you find the ride smooth and trustworthy on your cornering?

Hello Darrell and welcome to the forum. We sure would like to see a picture of your bike.
