Just Ordered 1 Front and 2 Rear Metzeler Tourances
Well after a lot, actually a very lot of listening and asking a few questions of folks, I have decided on Tourances for the DL1000K6. I just ordered a front and two rears. Hope to get them in in about a week.
The bike now has 5100 miles on it, both front and rear tires are looking quite good. Brought the bike home on June 13th - that's 51 days ago. H'mm, the average is kind of easy to figure out! I ride it every day and run about 100 miles - not counting little 'excursions' here and there.
Decided on the Tourances as I intend to be riding some gravel roads up in North Carolina in October. Didn't think the 880's would fare too well in that environment.
I'll let you know how they work.
Must say the 'Strom is the most enjoyable bike I've ever owner. Comfortable, stable and very agile in traffic. About the only gripe is that a rider must be wary of the throttle. You can be going way over the legal limit without even working hard! Kind of nice to have!
