Snow is gone here in upstate new york, finally got a 70 degree day. went out for first real ride of the year. was coming home after about a 150 miler when a dumb ass cager pull left in front of me. and i mean in front of me!!. swerved left quick into other lane, thank god no one was there. but avoided something big. but anyways......just loving that new METZLER!!!!...got some input from this site on everyones opinion on tires and went with the metz...tire looks great on bike and sticks the road really good!!
