    I've been hoping for another bonus at work for a while now to offset my motorcycle spending.
    Yesterday, my wish came true. I got an extra $300 (that will be more like $225 after taxes) and that's about right for the Metzler M-3's I'm wanting to try out. I can get them for $255 shipped and just may be ordering them today to have a set ready for the track day on July 24th.

    My current Pilot Power's have a bit over 3000 miles and can easily do another 1000 miles before hitting the wear bars but I don't want to hit the track on a questionable tire and then seriously regret it later. The number of miles I put on this week will determine if I swap the tires before or after the track day.
     
  2. Sounds like you need spare rims. I suggest BST or Dymag. Get a pair for me while you're at it, please.
     

  3. i knew you couldnt hold out till the fall, they last longer if you dont if you dont roast down maple grove at 135 mph

    Just placed the order.
    Metzeler M-3's coming next week.
    Good price too. $247.91 shipped for a 180/55/17 and a 120/70/17.
    Much better than the CycleGear price of $304.48 ($289.98 + $14.50) tax in town. I'm sure MotoOne could get close but I'm impatient and wanted them ordered up now.
