The Metzlers that came on the bike had been squared off by the previous owner. He also included a new set of the same.
Does anyone have experience with dual compound tires? Supposedly, (I think) Avon and Bridgestone (?) make tires that give better mileage (less sticky) on the crown for "gettin' there" and stickier stuff on the sides for "playing" once you arrive.
I've used quite a few different tires over the years, and my favorite so far has been the Metzeler ME-1, I found it to be a very predictable tire that gives you alot of confidence in radical lean angles. A couple years ago I high sided my RF900R on Sportmax's because I could'nt "feel" the tire getting loose- Less feed back to the rider, were as the ME-1 gives you a little notice, or a little wiggle - better feed back, Thats my thoughts on it,
