I know,I'm up,I'm down ,I'm in , I'm out on the Mousse-wish I had a crystal ball to see how it would hold up on the 3 days at 65 mph on the highway. I've been watching this thread: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=740763
it's about using Mousse for a dual sport. Neduro and a few others seem to think it can do the TAT and some highway as long as you stay below 65 mph. Honestly I've got no tire changing experience except for the set that's on there now,and boy I know I'll be nervous on my first flat by myself. Was hoping the Mousse might make that problem go away. Denial-that's the best preparation
