240

Well I Like the 240, My trouble is I have a rider about 80% of the time. The wear on the tire isnt what I hoped for, at least with the Metzler. I will always have the 240 On the back... Looks great and handles no different than than the 210. Then again I think this time I am going to replace only the back and leave the front because it just doesnt appear to have much wear on the tire last time I changed out or this time

Went from the 210 to the 240. I think the bike should have come with a 240. You will be very pleased with the 240. I like the Avon front and back.

What about the CT 225 40 18?
What brand is it? How did it last?

Ok I hope you guys can comment on this...
I can get the Mets 888 240 rear with the120 front installed for $550

Or the Avon cobra 240 rear, 120 front for $530

I always ran the metzlers and I'm cool with them but I am hoping to have longer life than 5800 miles also riding in the rain and hitting curves are important to me...

Thoughts? Opinion?

Yes I agree on the 880 but the new 888 are supposed to last another 25% longer... the review are petty impressive but I really don't know the Avons

I run a CT on my bike. I will not go back to a MC tire. I love the Bridgestone Turanza
