new front tire

Post  spud1800r on Sat Oct 09, 2010 9:45 pm

I was on a little hookey ride in VT yesterday, and had trouble holding the bike on the corners, kept sliding out on me. At the next gas stop, I looked and holy crap.. affraid .the left side of the front tire had no tread left...checked it a week ago and thought it would last till snow flew. NOPE
Called the dealer I use back in MA., I have been running Avons, but they didn't have any in stock. Only a Metz 880. Ok , I eased on down there, (120 miles) and they installed it and I was back on the road by 4pm.
Anyhow I got 18,400 out of the Avon Cobra, hopefully I'll get that or more on the 880.
The place (Cycle Design in Phillipston, MA) is Darkside friendly cheers if anyone in MA, NH, VT need a place, see Sara In service.
Ride Safe,
Craig

last Avon was the Venom, and it went 16k. Sure hope the 880 goes that or more.
Only got a couple hundred miles on it so far, feels ok, but haven't laid it into a corner yet.
