Has anyone tried the mitas treads. fellow inmates claim to reach 8-9k on a set. I read that as terrifying in the rain...

Could be scary in the rain. I'm sure someone has talked about that while reviewing them but I can't remember.

The Mitas e-07 reviews I've read were generally positive. I may try one out back in the future.

I blame my faster tire wear on this on softer rubber and bad influence. Ever since I got them I've noticed a tendency to accelerate harder and to blip the throttle as I go over the bumps going into parking lots. I'm not a wheelie guy, but I've intentionally lofted the front more times in the past month (includes 2 weeks on vacation away from the bike) than I have the whole rest of the time I've had the bike.

I've gotten to love the places where the concrete is forced up or speed bumps. Lofted the front over a speed bump leaving a Starbucks with 3 cops watching that had all just gotten back into their respective cars. All traffic enforcement guys. I had said hi to them as I walked over to gear up. I had visions of a real SOG experience for a moment. Must have been end of shift.

I thought JD was gonna have a stroke he was laughing so hard when I intentionally wheelied unintentionally right beside a stopped LEO in downtown Camp Wood. Sonofabitch. Almost broke something I set it down so hard.
