Glad we didn't round a corner and meet them instead of having them ride up when we were just sitting there.
From the "Its a Small World Dept", I got to work today and was talking about the ride yesterday. My coworker says that a friend of his sent a him picture of 2 motorcycles that she rode her horse between yesterday on Canyon Rim Road.

Thanks for the help guys. Pending which direction we went, you guys had us covered. Tetched had a tire lined up for us to use on our way to Marietta, but somewhere during our ride, we passed up SR 78. By the time i figured it out, we were outside Parkersburg. We did an inspection of the tire and decided to just ride it home after lunch at the Levee House in Marietta.

I'm not sure what happened but this was the heaviest the bike was loaded. By the time we got home the tire was covered in cups and flat spots. The leading edges of each "knob" (if you can call them that on a MT90) were doing the opposite of what a dirt knob does. Instead of rounding, they never wore and were left to look like the flashing left from the joint of the mold, the trailing edge smoothed off into the groove. What was left of the tread on the good side of the tire (3-4mm) was gone.

Anyhow, thanks again

I'm sure someone can decipher the wear pattern. It ain't me tho.

I just wear them out and get new ones.

I'm sitting here wasting a beautiful day, wife says she wants to do something but isn't sure what.

She didn't want to have sex this morning, or go on a ride with me so anything else shouldn't concern me anyway.

I liked it quite well, needs a seat for 350 mile days. If it were mine I'd put bar risers on it too. Really doesn't need much to make it a good all around ride. It seems to keep up with traffic fine, rode in to work Monday 2up and it had no problem keeping up with traffic on the interstate although it's a little small for the both of us. If that ones around in a few months i might just buy it and lower it for the wife so I'll have it around to ride.
If she wanted to travel on her own bike I'd consider getting two.

Anyone riding this weekend? Thinking about heading to the Sods on a backpacking trip with friends but riding sounds a lot more fun...

Sure, why not.

Backpacks be heavy. I'm about 45 minutes north of Davis, but ride all over that area.

That's what I was thinking.

I'm in Bridgeport so I could scoot over there on Saturday morning. I'm no enduro racer but I'm reasonably capable on my 650GS.

I'm slow, but I know lots of cool roads. Rt 50 east for about an hour or less will get you to my house.
