Yep. Huge tire, large air volume, slow rolling, fairly light. Makes for a nice front tire, but is sloooooooow in back, and even with the large volume and beefy knobs is prone to pinch flats. It's got a fairly light/thin sidewall for how big a tire it is.
I used and liked it a lot when living in Colorado, not so much out in the east coast. It's a very good tire in the right conditions, but not at all the tire I'd want to be schlepping around on a tour like that.
What are you after with a tire? You want better traction, faster rolling, what?
