After 12k miles I replaced the tires on my wife's CTX1300. I did not go back with the same for $600 from Honda.
Front: Dunlop Elite 3, 130/70-18
Rear: Dunlop D220, 200/50 ZR 17
It made an improvement digging deep into a corner when the old back tire seem to be crawling out a little. Front tire has no seam in the center and does not track grooves in the road.
Much better ride.
If you have seen the video "CTX1300 chased by Goldwing" you will see why the first set did not last long.

12k miles isn't too bad. I always did much better on my GW and a little better on my ST. Though many ST owners didn't get that good. My Burgman would go about that on rubber.

After look at the mileage, the Dunlop D220 tread came off at 2,800 miles. J&P Cycles just said TUFF LUCK BUDDY.
