RE: 1100 tire wear?
The Dumlops that came with my 950 only lasted 11,000 miles. I notice they don't grip like they used to. Dealer installing a set of Metzler 880's on Tuesday. Every dealer in the area says Metz's rule. Guess I will find out soon enough. They also said the tires the cops all use are a good second choice. He said they were Michelin Commanders.

RE: 1100 tire wear?
I recently replaced the Bridgestones on my 1100 Classic with Pirelli 66 Routes and they seem to handle the ridge lines in the road and steel grates on bridges nicely, and rain is not a problem.
