    For the 5 percent of the time we're (this bike and myself is) in the dirt?

    I know how you feel, I'm pretty sure I have that same rear tire (though with a *bit* less in the way of tread), and they are really quite exciting when you encounter mud on top of fresh pavement.:eek1

    Though in light dirt, they really aren't ALL that bad, I mean I don't have to buy new underpants EVERY time I see dirt/gravel. :lol3

    Jeez, I haven't been back since you killed the thread a couple years ago. I see you're still on your trusty steed and styling in black leather. :thumb

    You really should consider mounting tires with a broader range of performance benefits. I only ride about 20% dirt and I use DOT knobs all the time. They work for me because the dirt part is important to my enjoyment, and they don't give up any noticeable performance on the tar.

    You need 17's and Pirelli makes a sweet Corsa for you. They perform well on the tar and are expensive, but you use expensive tires anyways. They track better in groomed dirt roads. Much better. Good on wet tar too. I used them on a Supermoto. Just sayin' when you change rubber next, get someting with a broader range of performance.

    Not sure of the speed ratings with this tire, but it is a great street tire with it's soft construction. It has tread blocks to help in dirt. Lasts maybe 4-5k miles.

    Ok. Let's kill the tire talk before it turns in to a debate.
    I'm quite pleased with the tires I'm running now.
    I put up pictures, I try to tell a weak little story.....
    Just sit back and enjoy the show.
    Thanks!

    I stopped in Bodie a few days ago and wondered where that road went. Now I know..... Sort of.

    I like this shot. That made the ride up the road worth it, didn't it?

    Glamour shots are good. :clap

    Critters, if there aren't any flowers around critters are always good.:D I like your thoughts about the deer wouldn't be there happily drinking if there was a courgar around. I'll remember that next time I starting thinking about what might be lurking about.

    You stopped where all those signs said "no parking" ----- Geez how do they expect a girl to get a good photo of the entire town if she doesn't park there. Good job. :thumb
