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!
Is that the rear? The MT-16 is my favorite front tire right now and my last one lasted pretty well and is now on my girlfriend's XT225 to finish wearing out. No chunks or tears on it.
