    Yea, maybe you should get serious about looking

    I understand sarcastic humor, and it all probably just slid by your attention, but' uhhh, really?!

    I through away a 1/2 worn set of Metzlers off the RT because I didn't like the way they felt, for Mich' PR3's - very satisfied with the lean grip and mileage.

    I hope to do the same. Sure would help the pocket book if I was getting that kind of mileage out of a rear.

    I am at least the equivalent of two up, so that mileage is even more amazing.

    Those little dots will show tread wear in the middle of the tire and hopefully will indicate when I should change them for new ones.
    Well,
    When it finally IS time for new skins...
    You MIGHT consider the Michelins.
    I'm lovin the PR3s on my K1200.

    Pilot road 3's

    Reading the tire review in the ON this April I went to Michelin PR3's as they indicated good tire wear and good wet road traction. I just went over 6000 miles and they look great. My master mechanic Dave peters at Pensacola BMW also recommended them. Great traction, quite, smooth, and so far long lasting. I've ran. Perrille, 6000 miles, continentals, 4000 miles and metzlers, 6000 miles. So far PR3's are giving me the best overall value.
