First Rain Ride

Post  mash71 on Sat May 12, 2012 9:30 am

While coming home the other day, I ran into a nasty rain shower. Slowed down to a safe speed because of the weather and a lot of water on the road. The bike tracked like the road was dry. My friend behind me said there was a large track coming from behind the bike with no water on the road. This Dunlop runflat is the bomb.
When I got home, I took a pickure of the track. 5 inches of rubber on the road. WHOO HOO yeah

Just installed GO19 and rode it in the rain for the first time and loved it. I know have more confident on a rain storm than before. Also change the front time since it was bald. Had the CT for 200 miles now and wished I listened to a freind long time ago about DS.

Darkside really shines in the wet conditions. The nastier the better!

I dunno how they could: most of our tires throw a 30 foot roostertail! I shower my buds on purpose with it. tongue
