flat tire

well, got ready to ride and noticed my tire a little low... got a metal shaving stuck in it... tire needs replacing anyways... so patching is out of the question...

must at least get a rear tire tomorrow... anyone know of anyone running any specials on sets of tires IN STOCK...

wanted to give the pilot power 2ct's a try... (yes i saw the recall on some of them)

anyone recommend any tires? (street use only)

or if anyone on the NW side of town has a decent 180/55/17 or 190/50/17 for cheap until i can put an order for some tires... that would be great...

do you think you ride hard enough to warrant 2ct's? how many miles did you get out of these tires?

no, probably not... commute a lot during the week with the bike but go out and "ride" on the weekends... figured it would be nice to have the duel compound for the best of both worlds... running the bt014's on both bikes right now... but wanted to see what other people have to say about other tires...

if thats all you do, "racing" tires aren;t going to make you faster. they'll just wear out faster. your not utilizing the tires you have now.

modern tires are WAY above most riders abilities.

look into Pilot roads. at M/U

and who are you to question me?

it's called getting the right tire for the right application.

whats the use of buying "race" tires to ride in a straight line, and most sport touring tires have more stick then most riders need. so buying a race tire for street riding is a joke.
