Are those the same tires for the entire trip. Not sure if I missed that or what? Are they 160/60 and 120s? I've been eying them for a while but reports are they wear quickly.

One more option

I'm actually leaning toward this option now- mostly because I ride a bit in town at night and I want to be able to leave these on and not blind drivers/get pulled over, yet still be seen. I guess I...

Nothing left in stock it seems

I tried to order, but it seems there's nothing left to buy. I hope I don't miss out on the next batch of these- look like great lights at a good price.

or maybe not

after mapping it, that looks a bit ambitious. I think I'll just go Spanish Trail, I-10, Cascabel Rd, Three Links, Willcox, to the top, then return the same way.
