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

I went to an 'All Terrain' street tire for a change. It's smaller, 1.75" compared to the 2.125" but it should be a slightly smoother ride.
Expect a much rougher ride on any rough spots in the road, I put so fairly high dollar 1.75 tirw s on my Kulana bike a couple years ago and it rides like a tank on a rough road, fixing to go with some 2.125 tires for better width and a better ride.

Hope yours isn't same result as mine, I dont like the narrow 1.75 tires at all, less rubber on the road and rough riding.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
