Metzler 880
Not a lot of miles but so far a great tire. Handles and rides smoothly, good traction. Very steady and so far better than the Dunlop Elites I've used before.

Great deal
This the 2nd time I have purchased the ME880 180/70HR-16 for my 09 Fat Bob. Bike handles and rides real nice. I had 7,200 miles on the tire with about 1,200-1,500 miles left on it. I am going on a long trip and replaced the tire now instead of trying to replace on the road. I also run the ME880 on the front. These tires last longer for me than the original Dunlap 447 that came with the bike. The HD dealer wanted over $300 for the same tire. Dennis Kirk...on sale $182.98 delivered !!!!

Dennis Kirk has great delivery
This is the second tire purchase I've made with Dennis Kirk. As with the last one shipment was fast. This is my first time trying this tire - can respond further on the tire after it's broken in. Seems excellent so far.

Love the tire.
This is the third ME880 Marathon I have used, and I've been extremely happy with every one. Great traction on dry, or wet roads of Oregon and west of the Rockies. The last one lasted 22K and 3 years.

Handling has been excellent, Price breakdown at my mileage now12,000 miles =$0.0156 per mile and still have miles to go. My original Dunlap 427 for HD Fat Bob tires are = in price per mile (17,500 miles at replacement) but $100.00 more from HD. price divided by mileage=cost per mile
