For those in the Central/Western part of Maryland looking for a local shop to buy from JT Motorsports in Frederick is running a special on these tires and the TKC 80's from Continental. They came in cheaper than a few online sellers I found. I normally don't shop JT's but if I'm going to use this as a test tire I'm looking to not break the bank. Pretty much every other shop in town and one in Hagerstown gave me a Heidewhatsits? Heading in today after work most likely to order one up for my Versys rear and will be pairing it with a TKC on the front. I'll verify my price after I go in to make sure.
