I suppose that anyone who has used the Metzeler tourance can give an answer to this question?
And yes Wilbur I agree it would be handy that everone would have his bike model/year below his name.
And no I can't answer the question as they don't make them for my motorbike. But as far as I read in all the tests its a superb tyre but it doesn't last as long as others.

Hello again Ton.

I got em for touring with a teeny bit of offroad. They're pretty good. For offroad drop them to 15psi ish and they're grand for firetrails. For touring fully loaded add about 5 psi to the reccommended bmw full pressure. I've still got half inch chicken strips so I guess I'm not in any hurry but they seem to hold fine, wet or dry. Just starting to show signs of wear at 6 thousand miles.

HI Mony Tourances will be fine I've done 10+k on mine without compliant.
As for a route, I guessed at starting from Carlisle after getting up Englandshire,
and ending in Newcastle, with a mix of roads and some
good scenery about 1,000 miles up country (east-ish then west and to the north
then back catching some of the "must sees" but the there is
plenty of room for deviation (a trip to Skye is worthwhile). ..
half the fun is finding your own route. :)

Hopefully by the power that is Google: (and a long URL)

Have fun

Hi Gar
I would fit them if I had a Funduro but I am not going to swap rims to be able to fit them.
