Anyone know if they are owned by the same umbrella company? I noticed for the first time that the Metzler 880s on the Harley have Pereli stamped on the sidewall.

Yes, Perelli bought Metzeler in 1986.

:naughty: It's Metzeler---Pirelli :roll:
davidro is correct ;-)
Since the 1st January 1986, Metzeler had been a member of the Pirelli Group. A restructuring period of the existing different branches into independent companies took place, and in 1989, Pirelli founded Metzeler Reifen GmbH.
