    I have used the Me888 in the rear and gotten 11k miles out of it. This is no burnouts, but some aggressive throttling here and there.

    Previously Metzeler didn't make the front in our size, so was still using the me880, and got 6666 miles in the first one, that ran little low. On the second one got 8k miles.

    Metzeler finally got the Me888 in our front size and have one coming in this week. I had to go in store at cycle gear, because their website still doesn't show it. Hope get longer front tire life and still have good grip

    Has anyone tried going Darkside on the Gen 2 Vmax 1700? And if so what tire are you using?
