I can't give enough praise to the Metzler Sportech M-1! They are exponentially better than the old dunlop 207. I bought M-1's for both front and rear. The tires love to lean, almost too much!

Excellent grip! Extreme confidence at all lean angles.

If you look for more M-1 reviews on the internet you'll have difficulty finding a negative one. Metzler is definatley the hottest tire on the market right now

..sorry, didn't mean to make it sound like a sales pitch;)
..but it's a really good tire

The Sportec M-1 often rates better than the D207 ZR. If you like Dunlop tires, consider the D208 ZR, which replaces the D207 ZR.

How did you get a front 208 to fit your 6r?

My 6r front tire is a 120/65. I don't think dunlop makes the 208 in that size.

One more vote for the Sportecs. I've run 207's, BT010's and now the M-1's. The Bridgestones are great, but the Metzelers are amazing.
