Too dangerous
The tire treads are pointed the wrong direction for indicated rotation which makes it bad in the rain. The tire would vibrate on bends in the road I thought I had a bearing problem but it was just tire

good feel / short life
I like the feel of these tires on the road wet or dry. I ran then a few pounds low and the tread just wore away very fast. Talked with a teck at the Goldwing meet in 2016 tool me to run a pound or two over bike chart.that should help, 6000 showed heavy ware at 8000 was done.

Replaced OEM's with These
I don't know if it was the condition that I left my old tires (OEM) but these Metzeler's seem much more sure-footed and responsive. I don't know what the tread life will be like as they have only been on the bike a month now and winter is coming, but I do like how they feel.

LOVE THEM!!
Same comments as for the rear tires in this model:

They handle corners and bends unbelievably compared to OEM tires. The ride is so much smoother, and I don't find road snake tracking to be an issue any longer. They handled just fine in the 10 miles of drizzle that I rode through, though I kept the speed to around 50mph.

Only have 150 miles on them so far, so tread life is not something I could speak to

Alaska round trip and beyond
These were mounted for a Utah to Alaska round trip. That trip was 3 years ago and they are still going with over 14k on the clock. I pulled a small trailer that was well loaded. They worked fine on street, gravel and at times mud!

So far great. Ride from Los Angels CA to Denver CO. Then a week later rode to Hobbs NM. In extreme weather. Major rain (down pour) over 100 degree, riding over 80 miles per hour for hours. I'm very happy

if 42 psi is max what should every day riding psi be set at?
Steve W on Nov 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Your first point of reference should be your motorcycle's owner's manual. The max rating on the side of the tire is simply that... the max rating of the tire. However, some manufacturers will suggest a low pressure to improve ride, which doesn't necessarily mean the best wear or handling. I suggest you start at your motorcycle manu's pressure, then vary a little 'till you find the handling you like the best. As an example: my Nomad's manual says 28psi for the front. Waayyy too soft for good handling, though it gives a smoother ride. I run mine at 36psi for the best handling and wear.
