Warn makes a nifty motorcycle winch that might get you out of a tight spot or two. Just sayin....

I've been running T30s and T31s on all of my older Ks (K75s and K1100s) for the last few years and have been very happy with them. The K1600GT I just purchased came with PR5s and the rear one is near its end so I'll soon be replacing them with T31 GTs from Rocky Mountain.

Last summer I had to buy some tires for a K1100LT while out touring and all I could get was Pirelli Angel GTs. I have about 6,000 miles on them and they ride fine for the most part but they do one thing that's very odd. When going straight on hot tar snakes the front one weaves around some. Doesn't seem dangerous but is definitely annoying. Because of that I would not buy those again.

One thing on the Bridgestone rebate VISA cards - they have an expiration date. I realized this near the end of last year when two that I had were about to expire. I didn't have anything to spend them on so what I did was use them to buy Amazon gift cards.

Loud pipes save egos.
