Finally, new tires going on...

After running my OEM TW's down to nothing in 12,000 KM it is time for new tires. After reading way too much I landed on tires I never thought I would put on this bike. Shinko 804/805's. The dealer gave me a good deal on them, pretty much the least expensive tire combo I could get.

Picked them up yesterday. They are a lot meatier than I expected. Looks like I may want to bring the front fender up for additional clearance and get some platform shoes

I was impressed with the amount of good reviews on these tires. I'll keep you posted after a few thousand KMs.

Two wheelz for realz!

Pretty sure especially if your doing anything loose your in for a good time. Not my favorite front but it does the job and I love the rear. Keep it shiny side up...

Probably should be moved to the "Tires" thread.

There's a tires section?!! Tells you how much time I've spent on here lately.

I went back and got another rear. The price was too good.

I'll post pics as soon as I get them on

I'll be heading to PEI to shop for ocean front property in July. It should take me down a few red dirt roads. Looking forward to it!
