I dropped into one of our dealers last week and he asked what I thought of my Michelin Commander 2s. I affirmed that they offer more grip than the Kendas did, but not as much as I'd hoped - on greasy roads, I'd still had a couple of minor slides and one occasion when the back wheel spun under acceleration. However, on the way home as I was gently easing passed a car on the exit from a roundabout onto a dual carriageway, I had one of those moments when I realised I was going faster than I'd realised (this Scout 60 is smooth) and I was going to have to bank it right over, at speed, on a damp road - something I've been avoiding doing on this bike; I couldn't believe I'd got myself into this situation. However, the bike went round as if on rails, and I was able to just carry on as normal. I've done 1,200 miles on these Commander 2s and at last I'm gaining confidence in them.
