Metzler makes a good tire. But what would you expect from Pirelli? The Lazers that I used to got great milaege. Saved a few beans this year and switched to Dunlop GT501s. They stick good and feel great. Hope they get Metzler mileage. Good write up, gang!

I have mixed feelings about the "old" Z6. It works reasonably well on my FJR1300, but now with about 3500 miles on the pair I'm spinning the rear like mad accelerating whenever the road is under 40 degrees. Maybe that's to be epected, but still I'd like a little better hook-up. Additionally, the treadless center section of the rear works fine in most rain situations, but it's absolutely scary through light snow, when the front can't siphon off the white stuff like it does water. Additionally, while the ride is stable, I'd like a little better control over bumps when leaned way over, but I'm running stiffer spring rates and damping. Last, I do feel a bit of gyroscopic effect above 60, and I sort of think some of it has to do with the tire's added weight from the steel belting, instead of fiber.

All of that said, I'm at least tempted to try out the Interact version in the Spring.
