Fired up the first try with the Strom

Ironic that I purchased this truck last week to rescue bikes and it turns out my bike ended up rescuing it first

Whose turn signals are those? They look nice and short, and seem to fit within the SW-Moto racks.

Short-stalk turn signals from Cycle Gear. Seems to be clones as Lockhart Phillips has a very similar-looking signal.

Thought I would jump in and give my impression of the K60s. Been on them for about 500 miles now. 400 miles various types of hardtop, 100 miles dirt, rocks, gravel, sand. Changed my Tourance EXP for them as I wanted something a little (lot) more dirt friendly. Very happy off concrete increased confidence. Today was 170 miles of Coastal highway, super slab and canyon roads. This morning the PCH was humid. These tires seemed as surefooted as my Tourances ever were. side to side in the canyons as well. They performed great. Granted, as a middle aged (50) relative noob I might attack less than others, but still, riding two up today, I was impressed. I have only experienced 2 situations where I needed to get acquainted with their reaction: highway speed (70+) on grooved pavement (floating feeling) and slowing to a stop (<10 mph) front end vibration. I would buy these again. FYI tire pressure is 33 psi Front and Back.
