I'd be getting another Comtrac if they were still available, but from what I've seen, the Austone is probably a carbon copy, only it's
designed for more mileage (rumor or fact, I dunno). The guy who rode it thousands of mile and a bunch of gravel roads and stuff
convinced me about it more than the sheer lack of problems with them - so far.
So...I think I'll be just as happy Austoning down the boulevard.
Hmmm...thinking...I have a BRIDGEstone on the front.
I'll be totally stoned. ROFL

[1990 SE 1500 ] Have only gone about 10 miles when it started to rian . Not an auspicious sign for testing a new tyre. Will keep you posted once I get a few hundred miles on it.
Take care, Be safe.

Well welcome to the Darkside Lou! What kind of bike are you riding? Be careful till you get a couple of hundred miles on them. Very Happy

Welcome to the darkside, I made the switch a few months ago and so far it has been great, and performs great in the rain.
