Read what our customers have to say about these tires:
Had my recent order (MEFO front and rear tires) installed yesterday.
The first to ride my bike was the tech for the test ride as I also had the annual and 6k service completed. Conditions were about 42F, dark, and rainy. He said the tires stuck in corners, maybe a little road noise but nothing bad. He was impressed.
My ride home was at night, in rain, and the temp lowered to 38F by the time I got home from the 135 mile trip. My impression is this is perhaps the best Motorrad tire I have ever encountered. Even being new, I detected no slickness which was astounding considering the rain and temperature.
There is nothing I can say bad about the tires.
