Beautiful bike!!! Good color choice on the bike and brand of tire. Now go and put some miles on that tire, the more miles the better it rides!!! greazman(Rich) Cool

Congrats and it looks great! Be sure after a couple hundred of miles you try some different air pressures to match your riding style.

I carry a plug kit and compressor just in case. 1,000 miles. About time for a write up on the pros and cons you've found so far. Might help someone get off the fence.

Yep it's pluged ..guess that the only down side with a softer tire you pick up more things (nails) all in all I love the feel and responce..I find myself in a corner then checking my speed and found that i'm about 10 mph faster than I was going with the bike tire, CT just feels more stable.
will check back at 1500 or sooner witch ever comes first.

I have about 3K on mine and I also picked up a rather large deckingscrew in mine after a thousand miles. I keep 2 sizes of the rope style plugs and a compressor in the saddlebags. Plugged it aired it up and went on a 1300 mile ride into Canada Didn't even think about it, a car tire will hold a plug alot better than a bike tire. greazman(Rich) Cool
