    :evil

    "Run what you brung" I always say. Makes the ride more interesting, forces you to make smarter choices, greater challenge, etc. etc. "Line choice is more important than tire choice" blah, blah, blah....

    I've gotta new set of TKC80's in the garage but I'm not gonna put 'em on the old gal until she's wears out the shoes she's got. I doubt it woulda made a whole lotta difference.

    Poop.... I've just derailed the thread :facepalm:

    Here's another picture:

    Nice setup you got there, E2 or E3?
    Mine is just a bit smaller, E1 with a 500EXC.

    I had a blast- once clear of the PACNW weather.

    No all I need is a nice windscreen. Something in a short, flexible carbon fiber. Designed to accelerate the windflow and reduce buffeting.

    Wonder where I could get something like that?

    It was parked at my father's RV dealership and I got a smokin' deal on it.
    King beds in front and rear, slide-out with a fold-down dinette. 2-burner stove, refrigerator, furnace, toilet, shower. I like it.

    A better tire makes a better rider makes a better ride.

    I'd offered to pay for a new set of tires of many riding partners to stop their bitchin and keep up the pace. Riding a tire at the end of it's life just to milk the last ounce out of it... is a total disrespect of how little free time we actual have to enjoy being out on a ride. And how in one split second on a bald tire, things can go from fun to done. Funny how cheap a $200 tire is compared to a trip to the ER for a tweaked ankle or bunged up shoulder.

    With a slideout it's an E3, very nice setup indeed.
    If you're into FaceBook, they have a Coleman Evolution page, highly informative.

    If they can't keep up, your friends don' t need new tires, you need new riding buddies.



    Thanks, Huey! :thumb
