Tire Pressure

Although I do remember reading somewhere that a high percentage of motorcycle accidents after investigations the tire pressures were off. Maybe it was in the annual MOA report.

Well let me be first to say. ATGATT wins! I am glad you are OK. And the trusty steed has some added character. I live in the north and ride year round as well. Tire temps and pressure do suck this...

Just do it.

I wore road ID while training for marathons. But not right now. I do have a piece of tape on my tank that has emergency numbers. And on my phone.

Looking where you want to go.

Very good recommendation. If it feels bad, abort. Keep going. You had several things pile up at once and lost it. It happens all the time. Paperwork on your desk. Children. Workshop accidents. Just...

270 is crazy
