Took the DRZ out for its first short ride today. 38 degrees and been raining/snowing for two days. Tires filled with mud almost immediately. Managed to slide around in the woods for most of a half hour without crashing (got a little lost). Felt like I was riding on brown ice. Managed to escape intact. A trip around the neighborhood to throw the mud off and back home. Those tires suck on wet painted lines too. Yowsa. I think a set of IRC GP-1s or Kenda K270s (are they actually the same tire?) will be in my very near future. I'm looking for a 50/50 tire as I expect to do some commuting to work on the DRZ this summer.
