The problem I've noticed with using R1s on the street is that they tend to
tramline quite a bit ... I suppose the alignments I run probably don't help
but when I switch back to my Dunlop SP-8000s, most of it goes away. (BTW,
they're also pretty noisy...)

Nonsense ... I've gotten upwards of 5,000 miles on a set several times.
