    It sounds like this should be on the check list before traveling

    I am gonna be back on the road tomorrow morning. Test ride on tires seems good but time will tell. No major damage seen or felt just a couple of small scuffs. Will post more about tires as I get along in the journey.

    Hands down my favorite tire. I have run e3 E4 and metzler marathon ultras. Wet weather amazing gravel amazing sand perfect. Dry pavement ripping thru Tail of the Dragon god damn they hugged the road so fn well and any slip was caused by me riding a lil to loose and fast. I would recommend these tires to anyone and everyone. Longevity will be a question but same time I am an animal and hard on tires. Ride fast turn fast full throttle at apex. Definitely the right tire for me.

    I had a feeling. Glad they are working well for you. As it turns out I don't think they make a size for the Vision. I need to check again, I think the issue is the rear, but if true... here we go again! The joke is starting to get old at this point.

    Hopefully they do. Like I said longevity may be a question but a tire I feel 120% confident in is a big bonus and I will give up longevity for that. Rode in so much rain (from Vegas we don’t get that stuff) and on just wet greasy roads and they just stuck to them. Like oil we all have our opinions. Lol
