Seems a bunch of you have returned from long rides I want to do...

Thinking of a new jacket, but ride a sport bike usually and cruiser year round... And I am definitely ATGATT.. Am I crazy for looking at a 3/4 length olympia motoquest?

I have a short one (Very tiny few pockets short arms), and a long one (pockets galore but hot)... but I just want ONE.

That way I don't fill my bags with my riding gear.. but fill them with stuff. So I can leave them off usually.

What caused the failure? Was it flat or did you just biff? If you biffed on an inflated tire, it's not the fault of the tire iron. I guess either way, it could be considered operator error, a proper iron shouldn't damage a bead.

Who said anything about a damaged bead or tire-iron?????
They are just $hitty tires on pavement, period. Good for dirt/gravel, sure.
Operator error?? Normally a rider can trust their tires...not these.
There was a long thread on the GS page recently...I'd guess 75% of the input was very negative (on pavement)....for both the k60 and k75.

I've heard one of the 50/50 tires wasn't so great on pavement- the mefo or heindau. The other two were said to not hold up as long,but otherwise did fine. It's part of the reason I went with the Sahara3s.

Kim, "I see them Jon, there are so many fucks to not give about haters".
Kim has better grammar than that.

Like bikes, you're not gonna find one to work best in all situations. I have 1 hot, and 1 cold, and 1 rain. For hot, I much prefer perforated leather over mesh stuff.

Great, I have had Jimmy on the show before and he is a great guy. I saw his old band, The Nighthawks, last Saturday myself. Where did you see Thackery, Canal House?

Yes...Canal house. Middle - o - nowhere....with really crappy acoustics environment.
Been also wanting to see Tab Benoit that frequents that establishment. Also Local guy Gus Lambros is kick-ass (Electric Mud Band).

I think it was a misinterpretation of you saying to not spoon one on. Your creative writing was taken as a literal installation issue.

I wonder if it is truly a bad street tire or a matter of GSers thinking they are on a sport bike instead of a dual sport. I can see things going sideways with a more off-road oriented pattern / compound if you decide to corner by leaning with the bike instead of tipping the bike underneath you and standing on the outside peg. This is especially true at low speeds. Add to that, the fact that there are a lot of folks who don't know how to turn a bike and have bad habits like weighting the inside peg in a corner.
