RoadSmart - great tire!

Installed mileage: 27279
Current mileage: 35513

Good in the rain and they handle really well in the dry for me.

Looks like yours has worn nice and evenly.
Thanks for the pics

Yeah, and my daily commute is a 66 mi roundtrip on interstate. I'm more than pleased with the way they wear.

I've got a set that are wearing real nice and look brand new.

Uhhhh, because they're still in my moto closet.

The sad thang is I haven't ridden for at least two weeks. We've been closing our office in San Antonio and moving stuff. Ya know, nothing kills your heart faster than a mini-van on a daily basis.

What was that middle thang?

You? In a mini van???? Say it ain't so.

Back on subject. Just ordered another rear RoadSmart from BikeBandit. I think I may have about 1000 more miles left, and that'll go fast. I'll log the mileage here when I switch them out, but I'm thinking I'll comfortably see 11K out of the rear.

It's so. It kills the soul, I tell ya.

On a good note, I am purdy positive I'll make the RTE in Ponder, Saturday. Blow some of that mini-van out of the twisted consciousness.

Purchased and installed a pair about a month ago after dealing with the dreaded Bridgestone front wheel cupping that started after only 3k mi. Haven't driven much due to the December New Jersey weather and all the salt on the roads but it was nice not hearing or feeling the BattlAx buzzzzzz.
