I braved the cold today and did a little riding. Top speed, is about 105. So, I think it will work on the highway. Not much vibration, felt really smooth. Actually felt alot better that I had anticipated. Can't wait to spend a few hours on it. I'll keep everyone posted.txmedic said:Very nice, can't wait to hear your impressions after a few rides. Is it a viable freeway commuter?
Try IRC GP110's. They're no knobbie in the dirt, but work waaaaaay better than any DS tire I've tried. On the street you can push them all the way to the edge of the tread with confidence.buck000 said:What tires do you have on 'em, Anakees? I've got knobbies (D606s) on my DR650, and was thinking about getting something a little less aggressive for the street.
I've really only ridden sport bikes, so don't know what to other bikes it would be comparable too.fastraveller said:Can you compare the smoothness to anything else to give us an idea?
I haven't been on because I've just been in the garage taking it apart. Not that I need too. I just wanna know what's, what.Sleepy Weasel said:
No, I still miss that bike. I hope she is treating you well. How is your back and wrist?zaphodbroxy said:Congrats Will, I guess 'Riley' will make the parting from 'Lucy' more bearable.
That is half the fun of owning a bike, for me at leastdower said:I haven't been on because I've just been in the garage taking it apart. Not that I need too. I just wanna know what's, what.
