Top of the line
One of the best tires you can buy for your bike in my opinion. I own a bike shop and I put alot of tires on and I also ride alot. I have tried almost every other brand of tire but always come back to the 888.

Not just a great touring tire, its a great tire!
I have run through a couple sets of 888 marathons, they are a great tire for a big cruiser/touring bike. I have been thoroughly impressed with the wet handling and grip they have, even better the commander 2 tires I had. The rear tires have been giving me over 10K miles on my HD Road King, which I have been really happy with. (Heavy bike, heavy rider, heavy throttle hand)

ME888 Whitewall
I've been looking for a Wide Whitewall replacement for the factory Dunlops on my 2015 Harley Heritage. I've only gotten a little over 10k miles from my first two factory Dunlop rear tires and I'm NOT an aggressive rider. Since I am only replacing the rear tire at this time, I was very concerned the width of the whitewall on the 888 would be noticeable different than my factory front tire. I was very happy when I received the tire and the whitewalls measured exactly the same. I bought this tire based on reviews suggesting I should get much longer wear than my prior experiences. At this point, this review is based on cosmetics and RM's service and pricing... "fingers crossed" for a long wearing tire.

Ultra rear tire
Just put full set of ultra 888 on my bike. The rear tire is much more round on the tread for better handling than my stock Dunlap s . I run loaded very heavy so I keep my rear tire at 40 psi. I had no problems with the high winds and rain with a trip to Nevada from Colorado and back. Outside temps varied from the 40's to 90's with ground temps being much higher.

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.
