New shoes for the Steed-Warp9

The long awaited Warp9 wheel set arrived Friday.  WOW!  The fit, finish and quality of the wheel is far superior to the OEM wheels.  Kevin at Warp9 has been great to work with and I can't wait to test the wheels this week in the Nevada desert.  Later today I will install the wheels on the Steed and post pictures.

The below pictures don't do the wheels justice... Lighter, stronger, more durable wheels are one of the best upgrades you can make to a adventure motorcycle.  Most manufacturers go cheap on OEM wheels, which robs your suspension and ride quality.

After an exhaustive tire search, I decided to lace the new wheels with the Pirelli MT21 tires.  They are a 10/90 tire- 10% road, 90% off-road.
