Touring Italy on the ME888: Rideapart tests our legendary cruiser tire
Rideapart’s Jesse Kiser recently travelled through Italy on a series of ME888 equipped bikes, ranging from Goldwings to Sportsters and even a Dyna. The ME888 was designed from the ground-up to be an ultra-high mileage tire for touring bikes, with a wide-variety of sizes to fit bikes ranging from stockers to crazy customs with 23″ front wheels. It also features our innovative steel belt, with a single ply of steel cords wrapped around a radial carcass at 0°. The steel boasts a higher stiffness than textile and helps reduce the tire’s weight. It also reduces the dynamic deformation of the tire under centrifugal forces to improve high-speed stability.
But let’s let Jesse do the talking. Head over to Rideapart and see his thoughts here.
