BTW, you're going to love the aggressive look of those on your bike. I think you just have to respect their limitations, at least until you gain confidence in them.

Hope you're one of those folks who learn to love em.

Thanks I'll keep that in mind when I install them. I'm hoping I'll like them. If not then I'll go back to what I've had for the past 3 sets which were the metzeler tourance tires.
