Don't mean to hijack, but I run Metzeler ME 880's on my Electra Glide. stick and last very well!!!
My Metzler 880 completely crapped out on me at 1500 miles.
ya think the factory would warranty it???? FAK NO!!!!
switched over to Avons, and love 'em!
The only 16" dual sport knobbies I could find were Duro's - I would NOT recommend running the Duro on the rear tire - my bike, bags and I weigh more than 500kgs (over a half ton), and most of the weight is riding over the rear tire - simply put, the Duro couldn't handle the weight and started to crack/tear around each knob. I noticed the abnormal wear after one lap around the Nurburgring (I had, maybe 500 total miles on the tire). Simply put, the rear was quickly replaced with a stock Dunlop before I left Europe - although the Dunlop is terrible in mud and sand, I know it can handle the weight I'm running.
The front tire also started to crack/split around each knob, but it didn't become pronounced until a few thousand miles. I really liked the Duro in the front, way more stability in the sand and light mud and ran well for over 10k miles - after a while, I just ignored that they seem to be ripping apart... I switched the front tire yesterday (from London-Turkey, Egypt to Zambia) for a stock Dunlop (I'm anticipating way less mud on roads in Southern Africa). I'm sure I could have ridden another thousand miles on the Duro - but center knobs wore unevenly and the front tire started to vibrate/bounce at 30-45mph.
Finding replacement 16" tires that can handle the weight of a cruiser has proven impossible in Africa. Had I to do it over again, I would have switched to 17" mag rims, loads more tire options.

Thanks RoadHD. Been thinking about changing rim sizes for that reason. Sometimes you just gotta find out what's down the dirt road.

Checking the undercarriage for anything that would show that the seller might have not taken care of this ride before you make your final offer. Good thinking!!!

Last August I rode with a friend from Slovenia to Bechtesgarten, Germany:
and visited The Eagle's nest:
We proceeded through heavy traffic
to Bremgarten, near the French border, where I took a ride in a small plane
On the way back we took the ferry across Lake Constance
and through the Austrian alps south of Innsbruck on our way home:
