Talking New tires

Don't you just love the first ride on a new set of tires?

Yep. Just put a new set on my DR and went out for a nice long ride over the weekend.

I keep putting new tires on my bikes, and they always seem to wear out

My wife told me she wanted this set I just put on last week to at least last until the Spring. We were out riding this weekend with my brother and she was getting impatient that the trip kept getting longer and longer and further into the backwoods. Finally I asked her "Don't you want this set of tires to last until spring?" Of course she said yes. The only reasonable reply was "well then we have to stay off the F&%*ing pavement!!!"


(they still won't last until spring)

Love new tires especially when I just did an oil change. Bike feels so much better afterwards.
