Thank you to Manny at Burnaby Kawasaki for fitting a pair of Z6's to the BMW, all for a fantastic price. These were the one brand of tyres I had stayed away from after using a cross ply pair in the 80's.
I have used them day in, day out for the past 14 days and they have been great in the rain, especially all day Saturday. They are not the latest version of their sport touring range, but I also found that the latest Bridgestones were not as good as the ones they replaced.
