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.
