Well, I am now completely done with the Bridgestone tires as the compound was cold this am (33 degrees) and I went down with a rear tire slip during an easy roll-on of the throttle (less than 15 mph) on some typical asphalt free of gravel and any other traction loosing stuff. The tires gave way and didn't ponder changing their mind almost as if I was slipping on ice! The bike and myself are OK, laptop, not so much... I will be getting some new handlebars and likely side covers and living with a tiny rear swing-arm scrape. Funniest part, my new seat is showing tomorrow. Pfft... New tires will be coming soon! No more bridgers fo me!
