|"OK, maybe this place isn't all bad"|
"Thanks for giving it a chance, Triumph."
"You know I need new shoes, right?"
"Yes, Triumph. Soon."
Anyway, I'm contemplating what to do for the next set of tires. Here on the Middle Coast, I will not be riding all year the way I did in Phoenix. Where some people cannot tolerate desert heat, I cannot tolerate arctic cold.
Yes, I know the Middle Coast isn't actually arctic. It's still pretty darned cold.
Perhaps, if I had a Ural, or some kind of enormous, plush, touring bike with things like heated grips and a hot chocolate dispenser, not to mention appropriate gear for snowmobiling, I would try riding in the winter. But I don't. For now, anyway.
Which means that I have approximately six to eight months during which I can ride, depending on the weather.
So I'm wondering if I should go for full on sport tires, instead of sport-touring tires. I do think stickier tires would be better on the, frankly, crummy roads here. On the other hand, I've got a lot of exploring to do, and I'd hate to have bald tires before the end of the season.
I would love some input.
