Came on my 2010 F650GS, so I don't have any experience with other brands, but I have been very impressed, especially on wet pavement and dirt roads. Got a nail at just over 5K miles, but it didn't look worn at all.
R1200GS & Tourance EXP
September 21, 2012(Columbus, OH)
Have tried two sets of Tourance EXPs. Absolutely outstanding tires (wet, dry, gravel, packed dirt, road), except for wear (7,000 each set - 95% pavement, balance gravel & packed dirt). Tire pressure always maintained. Guess either expectations are too high or I have a twisting malfunction in my right wrist. Thought I'd give the Michelin Anakee 2's a try this time. MSS offers outstanding service and prices.
Tourance EXP on R1200GS

Used Metzelers for 10+ yrs & been pleased. Purchased after discussing (Tourance vs. Tourance EXP) with MSS associate. Mostly touring, but ride with folks who can turn off onto gravel. 500+ miles & pleased with performance.
Metzeler Tourance EXP Rear Tire
January 05, 2011(Bear, DE)
After roughly 60K miles with the "regular" (non-EXP) Tourance tires on my 1150 GS, I decided to try the EXP as most of my riding is on-road. I had been getting 8 - 10K on my rear tires typically, so I am curious as to how much of a boost in mileage the EXPs will provide. I think the Metzeler is a very well made tire and performs as advertised. Motorcycle Superstore got me the tire very quickly at a great price! I will continue shopping online with them in the future.

This is a great rear tire for the GS. Good on the road, good on gravel and dry dirt also.

This tire makes for a very controlled feeling. It is quieter and sticks quite well to the road. The bike is very sure feeling now as compared to stock. I always have used Metzlers as replacements.

This is my 2nd Tourance EXP. I got a little over 10,000 miles on my first EXP. The higher mileage came as a bonus. The tire is superb in every category. Try a set and see what you think.

This is my second set of Metzeler - Tourances on both the front and back of my Suzuki DL650 (WeeStrom). The first set lasted about 10000 miles, which is pretty good. They make the bike feel very stable in both wet/dry conditions. These run well on my type of bike and I would definitely recommend them.
Sticky, deep tread

Huge improvement over the OEM Bridgestones on my V-Strom. Hopefully they'll last awhile. The soft tread is infinitely better than the Bridgestones but I doubt they'll match the 8500 miles they lasted.

I have used several of these tires on my GS and have been pleased with the performance. I only wish the tread life was longer but I am willing to trade tread life for traction. The shipping speed of Motorcycle Superstore is absolutely great. I am pleased with all aspects of my purchase.
