I've bought two recently... I'd like to wear off some of the sides in the meantime.

Had another offer to go ride "The Snake" between Boone and Bristol, TN today. Although my mother is no longer around, my girlfriend is a mother. My day is already mapped out. Appreciate the offer. Which way are you all heading?

To bad you couldn't make it, but it sounds like your priorities are right..
We rode out to the Stuart, Ferrum, Floyd area.


We need to keep that NC Tag in the East, it's just too dangerous for inmates to chase around all those twisty roads.

Dang. That's some of my favorite areas on the planet. Lived near Floyd a while back for several years. Almost went to school in Ferrum.

Looks like my 954 tire after I missed a ride to Charleston so rode down on a bad tire.... It was bad enough a random spectator offered to find a truck to come take me to a shop...

I didn't realize it was this bad, the last time we rode it was for ice cream.
It won't move again without a new tire.

Did even better than that on my GSA running home from Utah running across I90 at 90 to 100. Passed a bunch of folks on the way. I stopped for gas and saw the tire. Still had to find a place for the night so back on the highway. As some folks recognized me they pulled alongside with a quizzical look. I cranked the throttle producing a shower of sparks and they understood.

The last tire I replaced on my RT was down to cords both sides of center but still had some rubber in the middle.
