Metz Tourance Tire Pressure

I just installed these Tourances and wanted to see what pressure you guys recommend. Thanks

These pressures are in line with the BMW recommended pressures. Obviously, when you're off road, you'll lower the pressures to whatever works best for you.

Using the 10% rule, mine work out to BMW-recommended 32/36 when unloaded, and 34/42 when loaded. The 34 is a bit lower than recommended 36. Works for me, YMMV.

The manual is a good start. I tend to run 30/30 with the Tourances as a compromise since I am about 40/60 on/off road where the bike lives. I have had no wear issues with 30 on the pavement, and 35 or so is noticeably stiff in the dirt.
