I actually get my best tire mileage loaded 2 up. With my wife behind me I have to be much more judicious in my use of throttle and brake. smile

It is a good time to be a tire guy! New Continental Road Attack 3, New Bridgestone T31 EVO, New Michelin Road 5, nicely proven Metzeler Roadtec 01. Hopefully Motorradd will test the lot again this year.

Thanks for the links. I get a kick out of the first youtube video where it shows the (female) rider smiling as she's riding through the country. The camera zooms out and the otherwise picturesque landscape is littered with Wind Farm Wind Mills - which mostly ruin the scenic landscape. dopeslap ohboy YMMV

OK boys and girls. Do you want to save $$ on tyres?? Sure you do thumbsup. Start checking your favorite tyre supplier as the deals have started.
Bridgestone has a $50.00 Visa gift card with the purchase of 2 select tyres including the brand new T31 in regular or GT !!
I ordered from Rider Domain today and paid $272.36 for GTs for my RT. I also had some RD cash in my account so
$261.77 shipped to my door less $50 big ones = $211.77 for a set. Such a deal.
Other manufactures usually do rebates too except Biby. Keep your eyes open.
I told the wife about the card and said, "happy Valentines day Baby." win, win for me. rofl
