Understand that you folks do not know me, but, when I share information it is the facts. The only thing I have done by service departments is to have tires removed/replaced. Recently purchased tire changing equipment, and will begin doing them myself soon. The place that I take my Victory, documents all the pertinate information! The last pair of Metzlers did not do so well, they had 20,165 miles on them. Since 2005, I have been using Destination Motorcycles in Kerrville, TX. They are amazed as-well! The highest mileage documented on a set of Metzler's was on my 2006 Yamaha Roadstar, 32,000 miles.
Have read all the reviews over the Metzler's and I am glad that I have never had an issue.
This is my first set of Bridgstone Excedra's, have read all good nothing bad? I will have to see!
p.s. 2011 Victory Cross Country - 36,800 miles
2006 Yamaha Roadstar - 98,500 miles
Stay Safe and Live long,
2011 Cross Country
