H-Rated Metzler Tourance
I changed out the stock Bridgestone tyres for H-Rated Metzler Tourance models at 7000 miles. The stock tyres had a discomforting tendency to skid, particularly in the wet :shock: ! It didn't seem to matter whether this was a "straight-up" stop or cornerning in the Scottish Highlands.
I've put 2000 miles on these tyres and the difference is remarkable, the wear so far has been nominal, and the bike is now altogether more enjoyable. The local fitter talked me out of the tyres I had installed on my previous Suzuki Bandit, suggesting Tourance tyres are stock on BMW touring bikes. I need to go back and tell him he was right.
