I just had new tires put on my V-Strom. At 31,700 miles total bike miles and approx. 9,000 miles on this set of Metzeler Tourance’s, they needed to be replaced. I had Yamaha Sports Plaza — in the same location as the former Action Motor Sports dealership — install a new set of Bridgestone Battle Wings, purchased from JakeWilson.com (great prices and free shipping!) I also had them flush and replace the coolant in my bike.
