Dave-d got the Vredestein Snow+ installed on the drive and car wheels before the RTB 3 rally. His wife really liked them in the gravel but they seemed to wear her out faster on pavement. They chased my old Goose around the northern hill country on Saturday, until I was stopped by a flat.

She sure handles that great and I had a blast leading. It was a great day with great company.

Hey drone

WHERE did you get those awesome stickers for the back of your saddlebags? They are great!!

Here's a recent pic--

That doesn't look too bad, does it?

I lower my passenger pegs for those riders that have gone before me

A thread hijack, hopefully ended quickly, go HERE. Still current. They're reflective, too!

I don't see blizzak mentioned much as a pusher, do they not last long on pavement ? Has anyone taken a tire groovier to a nanking ? I sort of feel I should try that at least so my pusher doesn't outlive me.Happy T-day.DB
