Tire wear

This is what 8 days and 1690 miles in the mountains will do to a Metzler M-1 rear trying to catch Dan Greene and Mike Kelly and Dr. Curve.

I washed it today. Actually...washed the whole bike! All clean now. Putting together some things to try and make the tire change easier.

...looks like you were going fast on the straights a lot!... very fast, looking at that tire - if it was only 1500 miles...

I love to see people get their moneys worth out of tires. Way too expensive to throw rubber away. Good on you Bob.
