I would be very wary and keep a close eye on the metz when you have done that many miles on it.They get to a point then will deteriorate and show the belts very fast!.The tone of my post on this thread shows how I got caught out and the same has happened to a mate I was riding with who ended up getting stuck in a town waiting for a tyre.If you are going for a long ride strap your new tyre on the back of your bike cause you may need it unexpectedly.
