Well, I picked up my bike and have about 5 miles on the new Karoo 3. Obviously, that doesn't say anything but later today, I will have a bit longer of a ride including several miles on the interstate and it will likely be raining this afternoon.
In the 5 miles, I didn't notice anything annoying on the street. It isn't rough but I can feel the knobs as I slow to a stop. There is a very slight
vibration in my feet but nothing that I would consider a problem. Noise so far seems to be just slightly more than the Tourance that I had.
Again, this is very preliminary and so far, I only have the rear tire. No word yet on when the front will show up at the dealer. It will be several days before I can even cut through a pasture with the tires and I would likely wait until I have the front anyway.
The good news is, I actually have it!!!
