Yea it felt fine at the beginning. About 1/2 way between when we got on hwy 16 and when we got to the mooses (meece? Mooses? moosi? whatever) or herd of large animals with antlers......is when I first started noticing a change. I started feeling it bigtime in the downhill stretch on Hwy 21 north of 16. But all I was really feeling is that it was squared off.
Now I'm trying to figure out my own tire. I can either really limit my riding and use this one at the Rat Raid, or ride a lot and wear it out just before the rat raid and replace it.
I think I'm going to end up in the middle , with 9000 miles on the tire and it looking and feeling fine - go to the Rat Raid, and end up doing the same thing you did.
Maybe over Thanksgiving I can get out and ride a couple days and get some miles in.
