EH? I just paid R800 for one tyre (rear D606) and thought I'd got a bargain.  ???

Good Choice me thinks.

My Kids says I ride like an old man :eek7:, but they cannot keep up in Bain's Kloof.

Back tyre close to 16,000km, still some life left.
Front closer to 12,000km, but starting to crack outer blocks... should I slow down in the corners?  :imaposer: :deal:

SORRY (not), WHERE is the GRRRR_man then. I miss his egg stories.  :deal:
