Hi there Commuter Boy! I wondered if you'd chime in here - you usually do after awhile when I ask one of these questions. It used to be easier when I just used to come over to your place in my slippers..... There's nothing like old neighbours.
What species of Pirelli did you buy? I checked out 1010 online and didn't see steel rims online - they pushed you toward alloys. I'll probably head down to Ralph's in South Burnaby - they're around 10 minutes from where I live when I'm in town. By the way, I'm looking for another airhead to keep my GS company over here....
