I ordered these before I joined the Forum.
I didn't get a chance to ask you guys.
Did I do good or will I be sorry? :notworth:

For those who don't zoom in on the picture.

Metzeler ME 880 Marathon front and rear.

Metzlers are far better than the Dunlops!

I'll hold my initial thoughts since at first glance it looked like you had a wide white wall tire there.

Mount them and ride it.

Bicep,

If you haven't mounted your tires yet, give RAM cycles in San Jose a call (off of Monterey Blvd). He mounted and balanced my Avons for $60/each. Much better than the stealer price.

I don't know what I was thinking. Bernard is an old co-worker. We worked as Machinists together before he started his business. I should go see him.

Ouch.
I just got off the phone with Road Rider. $20.00 each to mount and balance.
even the 240 x 40 x 18

Maybe i'll just go by and say hi.

Not trying to thread jack here, but I bought an extended road hazard for the Dunlops when I bought my bike back in July. If I switch to Metzelers will the road hazard apply to them? I really like the tread pattern of the Marathons.

Bicep,

$20 each at road rider, now thats a good deal. Small world, Bernard is a great guy to deal with. I'm also in manufacturing, so I make all of my own stuff also (my main job is solid modeling, CAD\CAM, and programming cnc lasers).

Jeff, Good point. So I looked at my papers. I got the extended service plan from Harley.

It came with a booklet. Page 2 states:

Tire and wheel coverage
We will pay for the COSTS to repair or replace the original equipment or like replacement tire and/or wheels of YOUR MOTORCYCLE that fail due to contact with a road hazard (pot hole or debris on the road surface such as nail, rock or tree limb).

It goes on , but the "or like replacement tire and /or wheels" I think covers our Metzelers.

I will come and see you for a job if I get laid off. I am a lead man in the machine shop for a defence contractor. I program with Mastercam X4 and run Haas CNC mills. I use Pro-E .IGES files to program from.
