I would definitely like to check out your setup and get a little advice. Always good to meet another local forum member too.
Sunday is looking good, you gonna be riding? First beer is on me.

I'm always up for a ride. Sunday would be fine with me. Let's keep an eye on the weather. You know how new England weather can be

I'd like to know what kind of mileage you end up getting out of these. They are a pretty nice looking tire. They are coming stock on the new Indian Challenger, first place I saw them.

only have 2200 on them so far so not really showing any wear but I'll post mileage as I go. Don't get to ride as much as some of you guys so might take a while. I really don't expect more then the normal 12 - 14000 out of the rear but we will see.

I’ve had Metzlers twice because the came with the custom wheels I had. I certainly hope the new tire is better than the 888, I didn’t get good mileage and wouldn’t brag about the handling. I’m really happy with Dunlop.
