This is a REALLY good read and I needed to reblog it!

It’s only been a matter of time, really. So far, in my life,  I have witnessed a slow progression of rational thought winning out over pathetic, sleazy, and out-dated ideology. Recently, there have been several huge boosts, it seems, to the Gay Rights Movement. Dan Savage’s “It Gets Better” project took off like no one expected, “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” was removed, and hell, even the President of the United States finally came out in favour of gay marriage. Of course, that isn’t to say that terrible things aren’t still happening. Harassment, bullying, violence, and just general douchebaggery towards the LGBT community are all still rampant in North America, let alone the rest of the world. That being said, there is one sector of North American culture that has finally come around, and it is the one that I think signals the coming end for all the ignorant bigot-fucks out…

Heidenau K60 Tires


We use these tires all the time.  We commute on them, we have taken to Alaska in 2011, cross-country in 2010, been on the Triumph Tiger 800XC bikes we borrowed, got over 14,000 KM on that set, got over 19,000 KM on the set after going cross-country on our Beemers and now Leslie has over 23,000 KM on the set mounted on her Beemer.  We keep the PSI at 36 most of the times and they seem to not want to wear out.

Revzilla has a good review as always on these tires. Anthony states they are a 50/50 tire.  That is how they are advertised.  We would call them a 60/40 maybe 70/30 tire.  They are not a super knobby so expect a ton of traction in sand and deep mud.  Having said that we survived a very wet Dempster and Dalton highways.  Tires are subjective and you need to find your way by trial and error based on your riding styles.  We commute on these all the time but love the fact that if we want to wonder off-road we have a tire we can trust underneath us.
