Just what I was looking for!
How does one find an good adventure tire?
Good on the street, but still able to provide that same quality in the dirt? Here is a question that alludes us all.
This tire gives better grip on the road than the similar competitions K model, and much better in the dirt!
I was looking for a tire between the proven TKC and K models, and Karoo 3 has delivered!
Metzeler has done it. They have raised the bar, and given our community another option. I have not been so excited to put more miles on these crazy looking things. I am willing to give on miles, to gain confidence on the street and in the dirt! (And under hard braking.)
We are asking a lot from all these manufactures. To give us something that does all these things, at some what of a low cost. As of this writing, Metzeler Karoo 3 is the new King for me. Remember, it is a give and take world.

Yes, I recommend this product.

Like all the reviews before me, to all the people that have put these boots on. They are the most comfortable boots- straight out of the box!!!!!! A traditional build, with hand made Italian quality, some what old school.
I have been on motorcycles for 30 years, and have just put them all aside for the BMW F800GS. Bringing everything I want in life together. When looking for a boot with quality, durability, style, and function for adventure riding, these boots came highly recommended! And I am thankful for all the information that everyone gave.
By far, the BEST boot- straight from the box!
Yes, I recommend this product.
