I have a set of Bridgestone’s (Exedra) on my Roadstar - they work fine, I can drag the floorboards in long sweepers and they are stable. They are getting worn down and I thought hey, I'll buy some Metzlers (the PO
put the Bridgestone’s on).
Anyways I was very surprised to hear that some folks had bad experiences with the Metzlers, I always ran Metzlers on my sport bikes and they worked awesome.
I guess my suspicion is that they were operated with incorrect tire pressure, Metzler is very susceptible to bad handling when the tire pressure is low (low AP will also prematurely wear out the tire). For some reason Metzlers like to be inflated extremely high (like 42psi)
