Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

I want to switch to the Kevlar tires but at $45 each that is gonna wait till after the holidays.
I have considered the solid "puncture-proof" for $95 each but the guy at the bike shop warns me that they tend to slip off the rim. Sounds bad @ 40 mph.

Also, search under "slime" in this forum. Some users swear by it.
i've had baaadddd experiences with those solid tires. ruined a bike one time because of it.

was rounding a corner on a sidewalk when the tire slipped off, rim made me skid into the street when the bike frame got bent from the impact. (it was electric and going at about 20mph)
They see me rollin'
they hatin'
