Yeah, yeah. I think that tire has real possibilities. Looks right to me.

Yeppers, that's what I said earlier. I'd like to try one out myself when it gets to the U.S. ! ! !

I went looking for an actual US intro date and all I can find is "spring 2013".

If I can get near (within 10-20%) Tourance or Anakee2 tread life, I'll be happy.

Somehow I am afraid it will melt off as fast as the current Karoo's.

O.K.. My overnight riding trips will be limited for the next month 'cuz my youngin' is coming to town!! Or the ranch. Whatever. I'm still excited.

I have a free weekend the 15-16 but a full work day on the 14th so can't leave till Saturday morning. (Probably. I guess I could slab somewhere in the dark.) So, I'm thinking a two day. Stay out Saturday night.

Dody and I are talking about scouting the dirt out by Brownwood for his RTB and my Red to the Rio projects. May head out there for a day ride this Sunday, too if I can get my tire and get it on. So....fair warning. It will be short but....with the two of us, guaranteed to be interesting riding. lol. Bring your big boy drawers. .

Sadly SOG, I fear its either going to be soft (grippy) and short-lived or hard (slick) and long-lived. But its good that hold out hope that some day a tire company will crack the code on making a knobby tire that grips like a pre-warmed racing slick and lasts like a car tire. As long as we are dreaming, lets hope it improves gas mileage and brings peace to the middle east as well.

Be warned All. You will be following Ghost's first foray in GPS track creation on his PC. Good thing we're on Adventure Rider.
