I felt a proper ending was in order for such a good tire.

The last of a great run of tires. Wish I could find a stash of them. Now I might stockpile regular tourances before they go dodo.

Hmmmm. Not a bad idea.

In the dirt riding I've done with Tyler, including the road from Rayones to Galeana, he claims the new Tourance Next hooks up just fine. Sure looks like the case when following him. I'm thinking of dirt testing the Anakee III (rear) for this reason. These new tread designs don't look all that dirtable but maybe, in fact, they are.

Currently running TKC80 front, Tourance (std) rear. Worked fine for RTB IV. Putting on Tourance EXP's for the New Years ride as it will be (mostly) paved with street performance the priority. After all, free drinks are free.

I'm east of Weird. Not a fan of Weird so don't go to Weird unless absolutely necessary. Guess since Ghost specifically said Central Texas is north of Weird and south of Dallas I don't count.

BTW, I think my wife would have given her opinion as to whether they were real or not. I still wouldn't bring it up though.
I swear..it was in the name of science...always welcome to ride...even if you are close to weird

This just made my morning. I'm fairly sure that would win at most short film festivals, excellent soundtrack!

I'm in for a Ghost-out in Jan. Are there any new people left in cen Tex to scare?
