Make handling the bike a dream.......
When I purchased my 2003 Honda VTX1800C four years ago, it had the Metzeler ME880 on the front and rear. Before the purchase of the Motorcycle, I did a test drive. I was so impressed with how a 750lbs Motorcycle could handle, even at low speeds. I was in need of tires after 4 years and I didn't hesitate to purchase the ME880's. Very Nice Handling! :)

Much better than Avon Cobra
These tires replace Avon Cobras and are much better for the kind of riding I do. They are very stable and don't have any of the twitchiness the Cobras had in the corners or on less than perfect pavement.

Good tire, great price.
Great product. My wife's bike (Honda Shadow 750 Aero) on stock oem rubber had problem with tar snakes on hot days in that the bike wanted to follow the snake rather than turn. As you can imagine this can be a bit scary on Midwestern roads. This tire has pretty much eliminated that issue.

The best all around tire for my BMW K1200LT
I highly recommend these tires. I've tried several others and keep coming back to the Metzlers. They are worth the extra $$

The standard
This is the standard for mileage tires. Every time I hear of another 10,000 mile plus tire model I try it and find it wanting. The 880s come closest to 10,000 miles of any I have tried. I ride a heavy sport touring bike about 15,000 miles a year. They are noisier than some though.

Great Tire even if a bit spendy
I've got a Valkyrie, and as soon as I could went away from the Dunlops. Too hard to corner and always felt like they were going to break away in a lean.

So I went to Avon Venom's and loved them, however I had always found that the Metzlers I had on my 81 Yamaha 400RD were the best handling/riding/lasting tires I had ever had. The ME880's give me this same feeling now with my Valkyrie

Good performance for an unorthodox application
After wearing thru several front tires on my sidecar rig I tried the ME880 thinking a cruiser tire would tolerate extended upright riding (sidecars don't lean) better than the DS tires I'd been using on my R12GSA. I'd also hoped the flatter profile would give me more traction up front. Both of these things appear to be true after 1k miles on the tire.; Haven't had rain since mounting the tire, but it corners well and handles dirt roads better than expected.
