Pirelli Sport Demons

I've been very happy with my Sport Demons. I got 7500 miles out of the first set, and I just installed the second set. I do a combination of canyon carving and slabbing. Great tires for the money.

Leaking Valve Cover Gasket

Sometimes you just need to get your bike up temperature by riding it afterwards to let the gasket seal up well. A nice 10-15 mile run is good to stop lots of leaks. Works for me.
