LOL!

I ain't saying WHY I'm laughing. All I'm saying is it's nice to walk away even if the bike can't!

I spent the day breaking in a new set of MT16's. Brand new - just a couple round the block street rides (maybe 10 miles) to rough 'em up a tad.

Tore one knob completely off, two knobs chunked, and three knobs split at the base.

For the record, MT16's can't quite handle 140 miles of pinned 80mph SoCal freeways...

On the other hand it felt really good for the the 40 miles of dirt I played in!

I'm going to try the Scorpion XC Mid-Hard Dots next.

If they fail I'm going to cave to the MT43 Trials Tires...I haven't quite made that leap yet.
