My review is not about the performance of the tire, but I just bought a set and the rear tire ripped putting it on. My buddy bought these tires for the same bike "2007 ninja 650r" and the tires went on nice and smooth. However, the tire I received didn't even come close to wrapping around the rim before it ripped. I am very upset about what happened. I did not even attempt the front tire in fear of the same thing happening again. I have changed tires for five years on several motorcycles, so I am expirenced with them. I have never had a tire be so tight and bust like this one did. It would nice if I didn't have to repurchase the tire again and have a replacement. Like I said the performance of the tires is good, this tire didn't get to show it:(

I'm on my second set on my R1200GS and IMO there is nothing not to like about these tires. This past fall, I left the west coast on a 10,500 mi adventure and I got 9K (bike fully loaded touring weight) out of the rear and I'm at 11.2K on the front (negligible cupping!) and still going strong. Rain, light snow, off road (hard pack dirt & gravel) no problem and wonderful in the twisties. Just ordered my third set. Amazing mileage. Ran them at 39/44. I've ridden 135,000 mi in the last 6 years on just about every Dual Sport 90/10 out there and these are by far my favorite. Not sure what the prev reviewers cupping issue was about (alignment?) but it has not been an issue at all on my 2009 R1200 GS. Quiet and smooth too.

I have had two come apart. The tread separated from the casings. Just like a big truck tire will do. The vendor took them back (two different occasions) and said he will see what Metzler says. I have went there, called there. It has been over a year! They never prorated, said sorry, nothing. The Metzler people did not care transparently. It could have been worse. Note- these were on a Harley Road King . Never again.

The tire should be good but they sent an old stock tires made in 2013

After 12 years and 22,000 miles I just replaced my ME 880 tires with the new ME 888. I cant wait to ride on the new tires. Im a believer in Metzler tires and my Harley Dyna FXDI looks good wearing them.

I've had these on my Harley for about 6 months and couldn't be happier with them. The Metzler out performs the Dunlop hands down. I WILL BUY THESE AGAIN.
