I have them on my RC-51 which I ride on the weekend rides
and they seem to hold the road like glue... though I have seen
them wear in the center much quicker ( on a 12 )than other tires. again, to qualify the above, we are talking about summer months here in Dallas, so the heat and HOT road surfaces have alot to do w. it as well. Excellent Wet weather
tire , as I found out Thursday night on my way home from Working out... got caught in the Rain storm from hell.. I mean w. Hail too... LOL <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT="">
They are Z rated yes but they are a little pricey , any weather any road had them on all summer and as you know I'm preety hard on the poor girl I went through 6 sets of tires if that helps you decide. Like I say I'm much harder on tires than the average person, I have the rs1 compound and will stay with Metzeler now, Dunlop is a good tire don't get me wrong but if you try the Metz I betz you won't go back either. I got caught in the rain a few times and one thing for sure you don't want to be in the rain if your on pilots been there done that and don't like my balls trying to crawl up my but to hide know what I mean? To each there own I say but I like Metz the best.
Easy if you try them you won't go back and they are steel belted also, I know this cause I spun the crap out of one at an exibition just for fun, twice, lucky I'm sponsored by Metz over 800 dollars in about 10 minutes, awesume pics though. Wife thought it was a waste but what does she know about guy stuff anyway hee hee.
NO NO NO dear I wasn't talking about OUCH, i'll be back got ta go to the emerg. ha ha ha.
