2010 Ultra classic

Post  justbike on Thu Jun 21, 2012 11:45 am

Have about 3000 miles on the Bridgestone Blizzak Run Flat, love it. The bike is much smoother, handles much better in all conditions especially on gravel and slow driving. No wobbles at any speed. Running 35lbs in it. The only thing with this 195/55r16 is the speedo is out a great deal so I ordered a Michelin Primacy Alpin ZP 205/55r16 going to mount that up, and see how it works. One thing for sure will never ride on a bike tire again on this bike.

Let us know how the new tire fits.

My speedo was off close to 10% and easy to figure out but I got lazy and put a speedo-healer on it. Always dead on now.

I was looking at one of those speedo healers, so they do work good. As you say you can calculate the difference but it is annoying and putting a lot more miles on the bike than is actual.

My GPS is usually on, so I have an accurate reading. As for oil/tire/total mileages, you can just add the percentage of error in. I go 100 miles on the Garmin and check the tripmeter on the bike to get my error. Easy math that way. Or do 100 on the bike odo.
I got'cher lazy and raise ya one!
