Thanks, all for the responses. Looks like taking an advanced MSF class is my best be. No classroom stuff, just a 5 hour Sat morning riding in a parking lot. Hell, I'll probably learn something.

bike shorts

If you have a gym near you that offers a spin class, you might want to try that a couple of times a week. They are usually a pretty good workout and the "scenery" can be somewhat motivating.

74' R90/6

Someone just bought a 74' R90/6 on Ebay for $5000.00. It was original with a claimed 30k mi. Nice, but nothing special.

New tire?

Yes, those two tread patterns certainly look similar. It's interesting that it is described as as for " Multistrada " type bikes. I guess the MTS defines a category now. Cool!
