12F!!! Now I feel kind of bad complaining about the cold here in Austin. Yeah I was a little worried about the tires since I had heard a lot of bad stuff about Sheng Chin's but when I drove up to the dealer (about 100 miles each way) I was happy to see the Bridgestones on there. I had been eyeballing the IRC GP-1's in case I needed to buy some new tires, and may still try those out when the stockers are worn out. http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...Rear-Tire.aspx
Btw I really like that fanny pack you use as a tank bag. I was looking for something similar but finally ended up ordering a Wolfman Express tank bag. I'm hoping it works out alright on the XT. Got a pretty good deal on it at Motostrano for $110.39 shipped.
