hey guys, thanks for the support over on the vtxoa board!
couple of new observations.....
the X rolls down the driveway by itself now, not good. had to put a small chunk of 1/2 inch plywood out there so i can start it and not sit on it.

and on the less rolling restistance theory, i checked, yup, getting between 10-15 more miles per tank. yes some of it is from the odo being further off, but i think it's getting better mileage.

next tire will be taller i guess, so as to soften the ride a bit. Hitting a pothole is kinda harsh with this tire. I did cheap out on the tire, just in case i didn't like the feel of the C/T...i know, fool...

I went thru some corners on Rt28 and Rt129 between Robbinsville and the Gap, that I thought to myself, I'm gonna hold my line and accelerate out hard...or lowside it trying. Tire held tight. Deb was behid me on a 1800N, now she's good, might be a better rider than me, but I'd never tell her so, (sshhh) anyhow, we went thru 5-6 of these turns, I looked in my mirror, and she was there, but back a ways. NOT like her. I just grinned and knew the C/T was for me.

Also I see some reverse chicken strips on the tire. Instead of seeing how close you came to the edge of the M/T, when you look at the edge of the C/T, you can see how far over the edge you're running.

Again thanks all!

Alright Craig! That's awesome! I like the little taller profiles because the give a softer ride without sacrificing performance...I think anyways!

Welcome to the wonderful world of the Darkside!....... Very Happy Cool
