This is not a joke.

I liked it better when I was in a league of my own. This league has mass expanded over the years and I have nowhere to go, from here. I don't need any more competition.

I run the Karoo2 on the front of my 950 Adventure. My Adventure breaks them down the same way. I'm getting close to the same mileage too. They turn into street tires at around 3000 miles.
