Fire Ant Haven't had to change the tires yet, though I think that sometime this year I'll have to do it. I have the OEM Bridgestone's on the bike right now, but don't have anything to compare them to. I've heard really good things about those Metzlers...

cliffhusn Metzler for me, I love them, will let you know in a couple years how long they last.

cliffhusn I waited almost 4 weeks for a day above 40 so when it came today we were dressed and out the door as soon as the hand hit 38 degrees... Other than water on the road where the snow melted it was great. I have a messy bike to clean up, but it's worth it. The ride was great!

cliffhusn I was skeptical when I read the threads, but after today I am a believer. My better half and I ride together, she has Harley but I let her ride with me, anyway we buy gas at the same time and reset our odometers, before I put the bigger size tire on the front I was always about 4 tenths of a mile off when we get home. Tonight, when we got home I was a fraction of a tenth off. The 110 size fits perfect and it's a great ride! I didn't want to put the bike away tonight.

Ckiff, what was that about the front tire? i'd like to have that idea please!
