Don't fly commercial airlines much then, right? Nearly all aircraft tires are retreads. These come out of the same plant.

MY concern is that different brand moto tires have different shaped carcasses... I'd think some combinations make for funky handling.

My only crash there was from the dew. The apex of a right hander was still in the shadows and the dew had not burned off yet. Was not even going fast, maybe 30mph, and tucked the front.

Actually it is a new advertising gimmick.


They imprint the tire and anyone following gets these microsecond messages over and over.

Diabolical, eh?

Diferent perspective in the wintertime, I'll bet. I don't like the closed-in feeling from the trees. It's probably gone somewhat in the winter.

You can often see way ahead making it much easier to pass than when there are leaves on the trees.



I took a trip there last march. On a road nearby which I had ridden many times I saw something I never saw on previous rides.



BTW, the road I shot this last pic on is just as twisty as Deal's Gap but has about 1% as much traffic.

Another road, maybe 10miles from Deal's Gap. I've never seen another bike on it:

That's the Joyce Kilmer National Forest road.

Good but rough.

My bet, if that close, is the one that runs under the FHP.
