    Now 350 miles and the tires seem to have worn in well. Wet grip is good, and very little road noise from the front tire. I recall quite a bit of noise from the front BT021 I had on my R11R, even...

    Mini-Rally, Sturgis MI

    Anyone have plans to attend? I'll likely be there. It's a good time if you've never been. A nice rally to start the year.
