Back to the Dark Side

Post  johnnie1 on Tue Jun 11, 2013 9:21 pm

Had been running a General G-Max and decided to go back to a M/T I hoped I could ride it a little easier and get some miles out of it but at 8,500 miles the M/T is getting real close to the wear bars and I am leaving for the dragon next week so decided to go back to the General, had great results with it last time and not sure why I went back to a M/T. Paid $210.00 for the M/T and got 8,500 miles out of it paid 110.00 for the general and the last one had 18,000 miles and still had tread. Took it for a ride yesterday and was happy to be on the C/T.

Welcome back!  I'm a new darksider with almost 3,000 on my Altimax and can't see why I would ever want to go back.  My tire is broke in now and I can't tell the difference from riding a MT vs CT.
