Well it's truly been a long time since I dropped in here, but I'm still kicking and still riding my V almost daily. I see some of you I know (and many more I don't) out on the roads nearly every day. When I'm paying attention, I try and throw you a "V" wave. Sorry if I miss ya, it's not intentional
Aside from just saying "Hi", I did want to get the low down on whats the latest recommendation on tires these days. Yes, I'm lazy, but "tires" is just too short a word for the forum search tool
I've had (and liked) the Metzler Tourance's, and my last two sets were TKC80's, but the fact is I'm not getting as much trail time as I hoped, so they are wearing out too fast for my budget.
So, other than the Tourance's, what other tire options are there these days for the "V" that are mostly street oriented but could handle an occasional jaunt on the fire roads? Oh, and lets keep it tame, I don't need to get in trouble for starting a tire flame war, just looking for a few recommendations from locals that know the weather and roads around here and also ride year round like me.
PS: My odometer reading this morning was ~32,800 miles... Just had the V in for her 30K service. In addition to the usual stuff for that service, I did have to replace the clutch slave cylinder, been leaking on and off for a bit now. They cleaned up the bike nice too, better than I ever do, and she's purring like a kitten again.
