Metzeler Tourance Front Tire
I just completed a 3300 mile trip. The tires performed flawlessly. I don't know about tread life yet.

Still the best
There are a number of good tires available for big "dual sport" bikes like my R1150GS but for the vast majority of us, these bikes are used primarily onroad. For mostly road use with the occasional gravel or hard packed dirt road, I think this tire is still the best option. Great road manners, grip in the wet and long life are the reason I continue to use this tire.

Luv the Metz Tourance
I've been running the Metzeler Tourance tires on my 1150GS for years. I get more mileage out of them than I did with the Mich Anakees. I love the Metzelers. And, RevZilla always has the best price or certainly comprable to others. I choose RevZilla!

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.
