Good to hear...I'm coming from a 180 on the Honda....the used JP I test rode at Randys a couple months back had a Metzeler on it and didn't seem bad in the turns....haven't heard much good about the Dunlops....I've already started pricing Metz's online.....which leads me to a question for the locals...anyone have a good place you trust to demount/mount and balance tires on these chrome wheels....I'm paranoid about getting it back scratched.

Doesn't Randy do that? If not he might be able to recommend someone. I think I'll be pricing the Metz next year. let me know if you find a good price.

Why not send this to the top...

I'm on the NW side of Chicago riding on a black 10' XR with blue pinstripes. I spend an awful lot of time in southern Wis. and in the Elkhorn area. A+ Powersport are my go to folks since I'm near them most of the summer. Don't be afraid to say hi if you see me.

One tip for riding in Wisconsin. Follow those brown "Rustic Road" signs that pepper the state. They're quite fun!

2015 XCT - Flying lounge chair
ATS +4 and Lloydz filter. More mods to come.

2010 XR - Road toy
PCV, VM1-DR cams, ATS +4, Lloydz filter, and Freedom True Dual exhaust - traded

At the AVR 2012, I heard that Victory has built 88,000 cycles. Take out the ones on dealership showrooms and the ones in the junkyards, there's not that many out there on the streets. Harley, by comparison, builds over 88,000 cycles/year.
