An update on my end. I've had the MT-16's on for a few rides and damn I love that rubber. Good front end feel, the rear hooks up EVERYWHERE, and a few trips through the rocks hasn't trashed them. My tire guy was accidentally shipped 2 fronts for my order so I just took them both, looks like I'll be running these for a while. I do want to try the Maxxis SI's down the road and I suppose at some point I'll need to take a sip of the Golden Fatty kool-aid.
I went to MMI I know what Im doing here chief
I just put on a fresh set of irc ve35/Dunlop at81 sneaks onto my "training wheels". I may need to take the spandex off and put my moto boots on at some point.
Mt16 is going on the rear of the "race" wheels, soon.
I have a ways before the first enduro I'm not working.
