new to the darkside! My name is Tim and a long time rider. My scooter is a 2010 RG Custom. General 195/55R16 out back with a Lasertec rear tire out front. Dyna beads in both tires. I do all my own work on the bike since I own a tire machine. I like this forum but I love riding on the darkside!

thx for the welcome post. i guess by the sweet spot you mean tire pressure? 41# in front and 32# in the rear. i run 1oz beads in front with 3 oz in back. My girlfriends sportster runs Kenda Kruz bike tires front and rear but uses 1 oz of beads in front and 2 oz in back.

thx for the msg. I tend to ride on long weekends and usually get a 7 to 10 trek in once a year. Making the anual trip to the Dragon March 24 - 26. Mount Makenzee in Arkansas in June with a 10 tour from Missouri to the Grand Canyon, Bryse Canyon and Salt River Canyon last week of July. I'm an OTR Truck Driver during the week but still get about 15K in the saddle anually. For me it's 18 wheels or 2 wheels. If your running 4 wheels your just creating a hazzard for the rest of us!
Peace and be safe!
Tim
