Still breaking them in, but overall you can feel the difference. Smoother ride, and a much better feel when turning. My only concern is how long they will last most people are saying between 5k-10k miles..got about twice as many on the stock Dunlops, but the difference in ride quality will be worth it I think.

Hey Folkie...I’m sorry
If I knew how to trim it down I would have..
Been riding for 25+ years but just started using computers and cellphones recently...
Thank you for correcting it.....

Wow, that's pretty decent. Gives it's some bulk, but doesn't seem gaudy.
What's it look like from top down (back to front)?

Where'd you get the lamp?
