Metzeler Tourance Front Tire
Just purchased my second Tourance front (from revzilla, of course) for my 2011 GS Adventure. The first one provided excellent grip for a little over 13,000 miles! I ran it at 36 psi - no cupping. The tire comes off the rim easy, and goes back on easy (NoMar changer).
As to revzilla customer service: ordered one day, tire arrived the very next day. Ordering took ....half a minute, maybe?

A good choice!
I'm very pleased with the Metzler Tourance tires - great both on the road and the limited amount off-road riding I've done. I've never had a tire mounted that didn't require some weight somewhere to balance it out... but that was the case with this tire... My friend video taped it when he went to balance it - knowing I wouldn't believe it...

Great tire for a GSA
The best tire I've ever run on a heavy, loaded up GSA, always get 14K to 16K miles out of the tire, 2 thumbs up !!!

Great all-round tire
I ride a big trailie (Triumph Tiger). The Tourance does a great job on any sort of road, good traction, wet or dry, long life.

I've used several brands and models of tires on my V-Strom and these are by far the best tires out there. I didn't give them 5 stars for tire life because they are a relatively soft compound so you will not get the mileage from these that you may from harder compound tires. The grip in the dry and wet more than compensates in my opinion.

Outstanding value. I will buy this tire again.
I installed this tire in early May 2011 and rode my BMW R12GS from New Orleans to RawHyde Offroad Academy in SoCal. Did a lot of off-roading over the 10,000-mile round trip. Some of it two-up. I now have just over 19,000 miles on the front tire and am ready to replace it soon. There's still decent tread on it and minor cupping. I have no complaints on wet streets with ABS.

Like the tire so far. Haven't had a chance to test it in wet conditions and don't know how the tread life will be. Other than that, the tire is great.

Great, long lasting tire that works well on road and mild off
Had these as original OEM and decided to stick with them as they are long lasting (mine had over 10K on them and still had some 2k in them, but were replaced because of a long trip than was coming up).
RevZila price was best I found on-line.
Delivery was very quick...and for free!
