After only 1250km on my new XRX that is what I will do next week. Remove the noisy "wahwahwahwah" Tourance Next and replace those with T31's . I had T31's  on my Tiger Sport during my trip in the Alpes in June. They were top in all kinds of weather.
I have put 800 miles on my T31,s now and they put a smile on my face every time i ride..riding them right to the top of the sidewall not a problem as they give so much confidence..I cant see them being a long lasting tire to be honest but that's not on my agenda,keeping upright is top of my list.
I work, i ride bikes, i work, i ride bikes, i work, i ride bikes....

I have 7K miles on mine so far, while they do make noise they seem to be a good tire to me.  I can see that if you don't have the right pressure the front will start cupping and I am not 100% sure that my front might need replaced before the rear.   When I hit the wear bars I will let everyone know the mileage.   I am pretty soft on tires so I tend to get the upper range of mileage out of them before I need to switch so keep that in mind with my reports.

I have changed the tire pressure a little to 34/39psi  from the 32/39psi the manual recommends.  32psi started to scallop on me a bit.

8500 miles on mine now and I still have 1-2mm left before the limit on both the front and rear. This is the first set of tyres I've ever seen wearing at exactly the same rate, ever. I keep them at the recommended tyre pressure and mainly commute. The rear is pretty squared off but the bike doesn't feel unstable when cornering and doesn't drop in faster than I can handle. My only issue is the rear slips a bit now in the wet.

As impressive as they've been, I really don't like Metzelers business practises and quality control so will be changing them for a more reputable brand.
