Seriously consider the Michelin Commander 2 in a 200/55/17 V-78. Now about $148 - $169 delivered to you or your dealer. This tire fits well in the fender, corrects the slight underestimated speed on the speedometer, takes 100-200 miles to break in and it looks like Michelin hit a home run with this tire. 5-6 k on the Metzeler did not cut it for me, and I would predict, for a number of other riders. Got a couple thousand miles on it now and no problems of any kind.
