It's a 205/55 - 16 Goodyear Touring

After dinner I'll take it out and see how it feels

well the first turn was almost the last, but after that i handled like a completely different bike. I almost feels like it leans faster in a turn, like i have to restrain when i turn, but all in all it rides smoother and i can stop and not put my feet down so, it's got my vote. The big problem that i ran into was that i had to remove my pipes to get the rear caliper mount off, i'm running Bub Chamber Maids and that was a pain to do. The putting the tire on the rim was rather easy once i figured out the process to do it, by hand . . . er, by paddles. The tire is rated for 51 psi. , i"m running 40 in it, should i be using the whole 51 psi?

sorry if the pics are too big, here's all the pics LINK

The air pressure is totally rider prefferance. You can play with it, say 4 lbs at a time up and down and see what you like best. Everyone has their own sweet spot.

Welcome aboard. Don't let Twin send you an empty cookie box.

As Unk Jer said, Play with the pressure. I started out high and then dropped by 4 until I got close then up and down till I found the sweet spot. Once you find it you will know. Glad your fist turn turned out ok.

Peace
