Got a good long wear from it on I75 in the hill country of Florida they’re some pretty nice curves up there and I would have to slow down cause it felt like it was slipping at speeds above 70 it would hold better when it was warm 75+f

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 THESE!
Only ever had stock OEM tires on any of my bikes, letting the dealership replace the tires under warranty with their own the last time.

This time, decided to try something different, and went with the Metlzer's based on the recommendations of a number of fellow riders. I am very thankful I did! These ride so much better, I don't find road snake tracking to be an issue any longer; they handle bends and cornering like a dream, and they grip the road like glue. Used to be nervous about taking bends at speed, but now?? Not an issue!

I've encountered no issue with wet road surfaces so far, but I only road through 10 miles of drizzles and kept the speed around 50, so not a great test per se.

I've put only about 150 miles on them since they were installed this past weekend, so I have no way of knowing the quality of tread life.

Metzeler ME888
New tread was .312". Put 4500 miles on it so far. Used .100". Looks like it will last for 9,000 miles. Original Dunlop 402 lasted for 11,500 miles. Much softer feeling ride. Works well.

I like!
First time with metzler. been using recommended Dunlops for years on my 2001 harley Ultra classic. I should have switched long ago. I really like the ride. They seem to really grip the road. The only reason i gave the tires a 3 out of 5 on tread life and wet traction is that i havent had them long enough to give a rating. The true test will be to see how long they last. I would only get 8000 to 10k on the dunlops. I heard that the metzlers would give 14k I have not ridden in the rain with them yet. I also like the great prices of these. A lot cheaper than dunlops. I would recommend. Also i ordered by phone and the salesman was very good. He even helped and sent in the rebate that Metzler was offering. Also did a price match with another company. Will definitely work with these guys again! Thanks!

This is my second purchase of ME888's bought a set for my Harley wide glide and now a set for my Indian scout. I can honestly tell you the work fantastic in the Washington rain and do awesome in the dead heat of Texas. I wouldn't go with any other tire for my bikes.
