I installed this tire on my ST1300 and drove it 834 miles in sun and rain. Smooth, steady, and great in the rain! While I don't have a real sense of actual tread life, there was zero wear on my first 834 miles. I love this tire.

My husband just loves these tires, hug the mountain roads great, not sure on tread life yet just got them but will let you know. He is very pleased so far if we can get good miles out of them they will definitely be the tires we put on our 2004 BMW R1100R for the rest of the time we own the bike, Thanks for making a great tire.
A Good Choice

I'm on a BMW 2004 K1200RS with all the bags mounted and love these tires. They just don't waver in the wet. I'm watching the tread wear closely and keep the pressure exact. Seems some Michelin's wear better still than the Z8's. I will continue to use the Z8's as I like the confidence they instill in all weather. Pricing/shipping is good through this store too!

Overall very nice tires. Smooth compliant, sticky in the twists and good on wet pavement. Only disappointment, they seem to wear quicker yet than the old Z6 Metzlers which so far are a favorite.

Makes my Ducati like new again. Don't try cheap tires because it will just waste your money.

I took a trip to paonia, colorado, this summer. I came back by way of Pikes Peak
and the ride up and down was great. Dispite the rain, sleet and hale and lightning that was happening on the way down. Highway 24 coming east from Pikes
Peak is pretty curvy and it was no issue in the rain storm. I am putting a second
pair Z8 on my bike when the super store gets some more rear tires for it.
These are the best tires that I have had in alot of years.
Great tires, superb price, shipped instantly for free

I am sold on these tires. I have tried the Z6, Z6 hybrid and now the Z8. All corner well out the the edge of the chicken strip where you scrape pegs and boots with confidence.
Z6s fore Z8s

Riding the back roads of Napa county on BMW K 1200 rs the Z6's went sour in 4000 miles. So time to try the Z8's. Stability, cornering seems fine - traction too, tread life unknown. My only peeve is that it seems a bit iffy on tar snakes on hot days. Motorcycle Superstore has the best price & shipping from boots to tires.

I have had the Z8's on my bike(bmw k1300GT) for 6,000 miles now, and I love these tires. I still have tread on them, and expect to get another 1000 miles or so more! Previously I have had only the z6's, and there is no comparison between the two. The z8's out perform the z6's in every catagory by a considersble margin! I was going to try the P2's, but after reading some other reviews i'm gonna stick (pun intended) with the Z8's.
