The Metzeler Sahara Enduro 3 are not good: terrible life (dead @ 8,000 kms / 5,000 miles) and not the best off-road feeling. I wouldn't buy them again.

I have a Shinko 700 on the front now and I am VERY impressed with: life, traction, stability and stickiness on twisty roads. And I paid $39 for it @ Motorcycle Superstore. On the rear, I still have the VeeRubber we put in Argentina... but will be replaced next riding season as it's on its last legs after 18,000 kms / 11,000 miles. Great tyres and surprisingly good on snow

Hi Alberto and Naomi - I followed your trip and PMd with you a couple of times while you were on your trip. Some news from my side - I am moving to Victoria this weekend and will now be in your neck of the woods. Let me know if you are on the Island and maybe we could meet for a coffee or go for a ride (road only tho - I changed bikes last year and despite the marketing hype a Multistrada is a road bike only IMO!)
