so far so good

Hi Steve,

So far I really like the Heidenau. Had the Conti TKC80 put on the front. I've never run anything other the the Tourance's on my GS. These seems a little stiff compared to those but I guess that's normal for new tires. Really like the difference off road though : )

Wife and I went for a little jaunt yesterday in the stupid wind.
No pics because I told her not to post the picture of my fat ass dozing on the picnic table at Springbrook.
