Any reviews on Motorcycle Pro Shop?

They've got the ME-880 110-10448 listed for 179.00. I would use Ron Ayers but he's in NC... tax + shipping.

The only thing I have purchased from Motorcycle Pro shop is brake pads. They had good prices and shipped promptly.

I got a full set of ME-880's from them for under $300 delivered.

I needed them too. They showed up today, but I am out of town. Really looking forward to see how new rubber feels on my LT. I got 18.5K out of the originals.

What is typical mileage for these tires? I was happy to get what I got out of the originals (even though I have only owned it for the past 3,000 miles).

I know this is my first post, but I have lurking for a while now. Really love the bike. My first BMW, bought it off my dad (he turned into a pirate...lol). He also has an 1100RT that didn't even get started this whole damn summer. I told him it is the worst thing he could do to it.....

I buy locally from the Pro shop - They have always been great guys to deal with.

Sounds like you got a great deal. The last ME880 rear tire I ordered cost me $215.

I usually get 18k-20K out of the front tire and about 12K out of the rear.
