    just looking at a few threads on tyres after spening a couple of weeks in the Alps last month trying to work out why the front end of the @ was wanting to part company with the road so regularly ! Looks like it was the stock Trailwings ! What's the opinion or views on the Tourance or...

Up until around four days ago i had never ridden a bike fitted with Metzler,s , And did not know what to expect on Sunday the...

    Went today to Honda/BMW dealer near me and found diferent Tourance front tyres on various models... why? A few 1200/1100GS and a VStrom 1000 had a pair like this: but all the F650 (single) present had a front pattern exactly like the rear (and this one was made in Brasil)... why...

    It'll soon be time for another set of tyres. I see Metzler have got a new tyre called a Tourance EXP. From the pix, it's a more road biased tyre. Has anyone tried these? If so what are they like both for grip, and wear?

    Anybody using these on an @,how you find em ?? I switched over to these on my Dommie and have drove through the winter ,found them great. :thumbup:

    Just fitted another pair of Metzeler Tourance's to my TA. Last pair did 17,000 miles:D I will post some pictures when I find my camera cable coz off the bike the wear is amazing - the weirdest profile. I am surprised I could corner at all:rolleyes: Anyway, main point is I wrote to...

    There seems to be quite a range of Metz Tourances fitting the TA, but which one is appropriate?
  14. Africa Twin
    Is £155 fitted about right for a pair of Metzeler Tourance on an @?
  15. Transalp
    Hi everyone. On a social visit to the guys that put me through my direct access, I had a nosy round their bikes. They are all bm's 1150/1200 gs's. Now I know they do a shedload of mileage, and probably dont get to do much hard riding though when they do the marks on the boot protectors show...

    Hi I need a new pair of tyres for my AT, so i thought that i would go for a pair of tourances. My local bike shop quoted me £175 for a pair fitted and balanced. Is this the usual price, or are there better deals? Cheers. Stuart.
  17. Africa Twin
    Howdy all. At the moment I've got Trailwings on, the back is fine and good for yonks, but I suspect the front is still the original as it's well shagged. As a replacement I've finally just received my Tourances which I'd ordered several weeks ago. The thing is, I'd kinda expected these to...
  18. Africa Twin
    Perhaps the perfect tyre isn't? My front Tourance has started to perish, all the way round the centreline between the tread blocks. It's not been run under inflated (by more than about 1psi anyway) and the bike hasn't been stood up for more than a week or so - it gets used nearly every day...

    I got a pair for my TA for £110....Watling Tyres!
  20. Transalp
    I fitted a pair in October 2003 after all the rave reviews I'd read on net. People spoke of very high mileage, the best grip, blah de-blah. The 90/90-S21 & 120/90-S17 (the standard fitment) seem to be very cool running which was a surpise when running the standard pressures of 29 psi. Maybe it...
