Metzeler ME888 Rear for K1200Lt is finally out

So far Revzilla and Motorcycle Superstore show stock on the new Metzeler 160/70B 17 79V tire. I'm sure many others will follow after their sites update.
Purchased from Revzilla yesterday and is on it's way from Indiana to arrive tomorrow. Just in time for CCR.

I get about 20,000 miles out of a rear BT020 Bridgestone for about $160 each. How much was the ME888 ?.

Dave the ME888 was 199.00 shipped from Revzilla. My guess is there will be discounts from other vendors later. Pre-sales at Solomoto I believe was around 185.00. Didn't want to wait any longer though.

Tried the Bridgestone but did't care for it.

We'll see how this new one goes, hope to put a few miles on it before the trip.
