M5 grip really well and help instill confidence on the curves. Work great on my K1200s. My favorite tire for this bike

MotoSport is a go to place for tires. This particular tire is in serious demand and finding it in the correct size for K1300S, in stock, is not that easy. Thank you for stocking this. M5's are great sport touring tires heavy on the sport end of it. Neutral, work fine in the rain and hold up to heat and speed in the South West.
My BMW K1300S came from the factory with the Metzeler M3 tires. When I did my first tire change I switched to the M-5s. I liked the hard center for tire wear and the softer sides for better grip in the turns, I have been using the M-5s during track days with very good results especially turning. Riding I average about 6,000 miles between tires.
One year and 33,000 miles later I just tried the new Metzeler M-5 D-SPEC tires. I find them to hold corners even better then the standard M-5.
