New rubber!

Grateful for the hospitality at the coffee shop while my Shinko 705s are being put on at L&D Racing Tech in Warrenton, OR.

Wow! Nicest service area/lounge I ever saw! Was there butler service? A concierge?

That's good to hear. We had a similar experience recently in Vancouver WA. I stopped at a convenient car repair place to get a turn signal bulb replaced because I couldn't figure out how to get the lens off to access the bulb, which I had already purchased. They installed it and wouldn't take a penny for the helpful service. I can't remember the name of the place now but know right where they are.

You are teasing us by not posting a pic of your bike with the new rubber.

Goodbye squared off rear! After the snow event in PNW passes I’m looking forward to scrubbing these in and exploring a logging road.

Good tyre & price.

Funny- the dog in your avatar looks like it is looking right at your new Shinko 705s...

If you don't mind me asking, what reflective tape did you use on those cases? Thanks!
