After a few thousand miles, Metzler Z6 good purchase
After putting a few thousands miles on my ST1100 with the Metzler Z6 tires I have been out in the cold, the heat, and the rain. Not once have I felt the bike lose traction unexpectedly. This was a solid purchase. Thanks Revzilla for putting this tire in your recommendation list for sport tourers like me.

Metzeler Roadtec Z6 Sport and Touring
A sport touring bike should have just the right combination of features to get you somewhere far away comfortable and make the ride getting there exciting and interesting. The Metzeler Roadtec Z6 allows you to ride in a sportbike style while providing a good deal of durability so you arrive at your destination ready to attack some twisties on both dry and wet pavement.

long life!
I purchased a Brand New BMW 800st in 2012, equiped with Metzler z-6 tires. I only recently changed my tires as they lasted a solid 15,000 miles! I was shocked. Granted the bike is not a super heavy sport touring bike, and I rarely ride 2 up, and 80% of my riding is highspeed highways ( 65-80 mph) Still, I was thrilled with the longevity. I did feel there were times when the wet grip on cornering was a bit missing, but not enough to shy away from buying a new pair , ( now z-8). I have 3,000 on the z-8 and feel a bit less traction on accelerating into corners... They feel a tad less sticky than my z-6's Still they feel great on my highway jaunts

Back to Metzeler
When I purchased my R1100RSL a year ago, within twenty four hours I punctured the rear Z6 and had to get new tires. I went with the Michelin Pilot Road 3's and they were excellent tires. However after getting a drill bit in the fairly new rear tire, and finally needing to replace the front, I decided to go back to the Z6's. So far, I have found the Metzelers to be as good as the Michelins. I have yet to see how they will hold up life wise, but they should get me in the same ballpark as the Michelin line. I also own a 1200GS with Tourances on it and they are holding the road fantastically with good tread life. With the Metzelers running a little bit less cost wise, they are an excellent choice when you have budgetary concerns.

Very good high speed stability
I used to fit the Z4 to my ST1100 for years until they were replaced by the Z6. I use my bike for daily commuting to work as well as road trips couple of times a year, and these tires give me confidence to go fast even during a downpour. However, I have encountered uneven wear for the rear tire which prompted pre-mature tire change. No such problem for the front. Otherwise would have rated it a 5 stars.

Just started riding on them
Just got a pair of these put on and compared to a pretty worn rear tire combined with a different brand and style of the front tire, the Z6's have been a PHENOMENAL change for me. They make the ride feel so much more comfortable because you can feel all the grip you have and that adds a ton of confidence. I haven't rode these in the rain or put a ton of miles on them so I can't speak on behalf of those two. Also I bought these on a rebate special which is why I rated 5/5 on BFTB.

TL;DR Loving the new tires so far!

Great tire for the money
I just installed the Metzlers so I am not sure about wear or grip in the rain. But they feel great in the twisties.. As always the people at Revzilla are the best to work with. Thanks to Rafael and Allison. My wife and I ride our FJR two-up and we ride pretty hard in the mountains.

Great Sport Touring Tire
I can't comment on tread life as I've only had them for about 800 miles. Otherwise these tires are really excellent. Wet weather grip is astoundingly good.

Another reviewer complained that the tires are made in China but mine are clearly marked "Made in Germany". If it matters to you.

In 1995 this was standard equipment on the BMW R1100RSL. Overall a really great handling tire. German technology, need I say more?
Toby B on Mar 29, 2014
Its a fine tire for commuting. Predictable handling in wet or dry, and longer miles than I've gotten from other models. I buy the same kind over and over because I like knowing what to expect.
Michael M on Nov 14, 2013
Reviews and my matching front is new. Rear is great shape but 2006 manufacture date and too old for me to trust.

2010 k1300gt which tire ? not sure what the "K"or "C" means
A shopper on May 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The "K" tire is what is recommended for your particular bike. The K vs C rating has to do with the stiffness of the sidewall. This affects how much load the tire can carry and how comfortable or sporty the ride is. I believe both tires will fit though. The C version is used on my R1100RT sport touring model.
What is the difference between G, K and U in regard to the tire size?
A shopper on Dec 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is a great deal of information in Metzler's on line databook. Check it out.

You will have to search for it as I can not post the link here.

The G, K, U grades look to be different rubber construction.
