    • We have the most state of the art tire facility in the world here in Rome Ga. It is owned by Pirrelli, who owns Metzler. The motorcycle division in this factory is top secret you can t get in the door. Metzler is and has been the best motorcycle tire in the world not the cheapest. Make sure your rear tire matches.

    Where is the cheapest place I can get one of these delivered in the uk? Or a better tyre choice!

    • Most of my cruiser friends ride on Metzeler ME880 Marathons. I don t know it it s better, but it is a really good choice. It s just another option. I just put on a set of Continental Road Attacks on my bike and they seem like a really nice tire. I think front and back with mounting was something like $320.00. What is that right now? 150L?
