800GS a "no-show" in Calgary

FYI. They said it will be delayed until fall 2008 due to heavy world demand for its smaller 650 version. If your driving from a distance to see it in Calgary don't bother.

tire pressure

The other risk of running with low pressure is too much heat...especially if loaded heavy. You lose rubber at an accelerated pace and heat related ruptures are a real possibility. Happy trails!!
