After a good night of riding with brokeagain (and a long, stern talking to by my wife when I got home - note to self, install a phone charger...), it was pointed out that I need some new tires...especially, if I'm heading out on a several hundred mile journey in a few weeks.
I was looking at the Shinko 705s. They seem to have pretty decent reviews and given that I'm a beginner to riding, as long as they are safe, that's my main concern. I've looked at the threads, and it seems others have purchased these as well and been happy.
I'm ordering 150/70R-17 TL for the rear and 110/80R-19 TL for the front. I just want to make sure those are the right specs. They appear to be based on the MOM, just want to confirm the TL too.
Now off to look for a wiring diagram...and coffee............
You're Mr. Stevens?
