Just turned 3k on stock Contis (14 Adv) and the rear is starting to square off a bit, but both front and rear are wearing well past that (no cupping or other odd patterns). They seem ok, but I always...

I've got a 2014 Adventure with 2800 miles and the cruise control switch has given up. The cruise works if I hold the larger switch in the ON position (where the Set/Res can be rocked), but as soon as...

I'll probably employ a tactic like that once the dealer takes a look - thanks!

Eh? Torn

Definitely a compromise tire and the on-road performance left me underwhelmed. I just got back from a 1000 mile mostly backroad paved trip. They wore well and were good for the most part. They are...

My 800GS has a vibration through the handlebars that is quite noticeable at 40mph. It gets better either slower or faster, but it always there.
