    Thanks. Thought it was, but it's been a while since I've been there.

    Thanks for taking us along!

    How do you like the Mitas. I like those and the Heindau K60's. Always looking for that do all tire.

    I really like the rear... I have to look, but the one in that pic has around 12000 miles on it.
    My buddy loved the K60, but since they put the strip on the 150 70 17 he doesn't like it at all. He ordered an E07.

    Thanks, the most complaints about the K60 seem to be the center strip.

    Thanks Ron. I was just up there a couple weeks ago. I don't think I took any pics this time, but I do get up that way a few times each summer.

    It is on top of Jacks mountain...The road connects Belleville and Mc Veytown.
    Jacks Mountain Road if you are coming from the 522/McV side.
    edit: Wills Road if coming from 655.
