Time to take the ST to the Darkside

My tire on the ST is tread bare after only 7K.
So I'm going back to the Darkside. I'm sure glad I kept my number.

Wow, only 7,000 miles?! Look forward to hearing how the ride is on your ST after some miles on the D/S tire.

Not going to argue one way or the other with your decision REF, but 7k is low from my ST experience. That's closer to what I get on the RC for rear wear, and my ST was always right around 15,000 km (9300 mi), always ran 36 psi rear too.

grab all the kicks you can baby, you only make this scene once!
