Finally made the jump.

Post  Magdar on Sat Mar 29, 2008 5:51 am

A big New Hampshira hello to everyone, the snow is still so deep here, great time to be in the garage working on the X. I ride with a bro, Valk Rider, who for two years tried to convince me to show my age and get a windshield on my ride, right decision, nothing to do with my age. A couple of years ago he went to the dakrside and has not looked back. Trusting his judgement once, I bought an extra Bridgestone tire for my car last week and it won't be going on the spare, now to find someone to mount it. Thanks for the board and the opportunity to talk to other darksiders.

I went with the Bridgestone Potneza RE-01R, same as on the cage, love the rubber compound, have worn out most of the tread, but still grips more than I could believe, even in the snow.

Well, What took ya so long to get here.. Me to almost a year in the maybe column. Been here about six weeks and that tire is getting better every time I ride it. Took it to the twisties again today, very impressive, holds like glue. Was throwing the bike from side to side and giggiling inside!! Welcome, Ride Safe, Remember ya have to scuff her up a bit before ya push it. About 100 miles. Then it gets better as the sides start to round off, that happens all through the next 25,000 miles. Ha Ha. Your in with good company, glad to have ya!!
