Tyres and Wheels / Re: Metzler Roadtec 01 SE
« Last post by Greedy on Today at 05:21:58 am »
Looking at a couple websites the SEs look a couple dollars more a set ($20) I have a mate who works at an accessory shop and loves everything Metzler so I get good prices.

Managed a bit over 100Kms today on a mostly dry road with the occasional damp patch or stream across the road in some corners

The SEs turned in beautifully and held their line really nicely, giving nice reassuring feedback. It will be interesting to see how they handle the mileage but that is or lower importance to me than confidence, especially in the wet.

I think the grip they provide is superior to the OEM suspension (or this fat old rider)

How do the prices compare as to the Metzler 01SE and the Bridgestone T32GT Abroad ?

In Western Canada the 01SE  are about $80.00 cdn per set more than the T32 GT for example .

Bit of an update on the T32GT ....  had a opportunity to go for another short tour (fall ride)  thought i would push the last out of the tires and i am glad i did .. total of 11400 km/7083miles  now and still wearing well.. mostly round profile and not squaring off dramatically  just still at the wear bars.
More than this is though is how well the tires feel in the corners even at there end of life scenario ..
cheers

Yes

And it was someone’s bright idea to pave the road on a Saturday during peak fall foliage season 👎

Ah... !   :001:  Did that road in fall back 2019  :028:

Dear Versys 1000 colleague

Pictures would surely help. Even the distance between the passengers footrest and the front of the sidecase would help (in centimeters?).
I'm planning a re-visit at a GIVI dealer on friday next to look at the system and the cases again. This time taking a friend with a lot of technical experience with me.
Thanks in advance.
Kind regards
