New Rubber!

I left the Niken at the shop this morning and picked up the CTX with its NEW TIRES. I like this curbside service. Maybe we can keep this level of customer service after we quit hiding from the virus.

I've been riding this bike a lot on the interstate lately. This was the first time I wore out the rear before the front. If I wear this one out quickly, I may go to a car tire next.

But it's so sweet in the twisties with the new rubber. I don't think there are many things in the world that can top the feel of riding the twisties on fresh rubber.

I had the Dunlops as original and replaced once with the same, about 10,000km each time. The dealer recommended Metzler next time and only got 4500km before they started to feather and near the wear marks and slipping around badly. Will go back to Dunlops.
