    Ok, I have to admit, you had me with your opening. :lol:

    Almost 600 miles on the Roper now, and about 400 on the Compass tires. I love them. Very comfortable, light and quick. Great traction and wide enough that I don't have to be concerned about every...

    I really like taking my time whenever I install fenders, because I'm extremely fussy about having even gaps all around. Often this takes a bit of customization.

    Very dangerous? I say no.
