I also had Metzler front and rear on my 650. These are wonderful tires, very long life as well. I got mine from dealer with free install and full warranty. I believe it just a bit more expensive getting them from online store and have someone installed them.
I do plan to install Metzler on my 950 again when the time come.
Thanks for the info, I'd never heard of Metzler before, but now that you've brought it to my attention everyone I know says they are a really good brand. Yes they are a bit more expensive, locally $180 vs the stock Bridgestone at $120, but I will be considering them.
