Yes..was told "the Metz like Pressure..." I've been running 44 lbs. in the rear tire and 42 lbs. in the front tire.

I'm limited on the selection of good tires out there because I like the looks (and handling) of the Road King Classic and the retro look with a wide white wall. Time (and miles) will tell if the Metz 888's are the "Cats Ass"??
