The Bike - C14/GTR 1400 / Re: Tires

Ted.... 4500 on a Michelin PR4GT? What the heck are you doing to get such pathetic mileage, low pressure?  My last rear PR4gt I had over 12k on it. Though I realize I ride like a girl :)

I think I erred in my numbers, so I went back and adjusted my mileage numbers...
But, my point still stands.

By the way, in answer to your question..
          I don't ride like a girl. <smarty arsed grin>
             & 3000 of the 5000 was in Arkansas, with Cliff and Jim.

Why in the world does the video not include some time BEFORE the kick?  It looks like it is a single lane and the car entered the lane without looking, forcing the bike to the left.  I can't imagine trying to kick a car while moving at highway speeds (or any speed), insanity!  Crazy chain of events.

I cannot believe this guy riding the bike did not go down!

Someone taught someone else a lesson but I am not sure who is who. Also not sure the authorities know who was riding the bike but if they can identity the rider I bet there will be hell to pay....

Maybe Ted has one of those trailers with only the front wheel supported, like a car tow behind rig.

My wife claims that I, along with the rest of the male population, cannot multi- task. I respond that she has trouble single- tasking.  ;D  Barbs aside, this is one of the most interesting examples of female multi- tasking I have ever seen.....

Now, THIS is an example of how to multi- task..... at least until the police show up and arrest you. But until that moment, this woman was multi- tasking the hell out of herself and actually including others.... Outstanding!

BTW if you have 20k or more on the bike check the front wheel beartings. They come from the EX 500 and arent up to the task of carrying a heavy bike like the Connie especially if you like the twisties.
I went through three sets in less than 50k all replaced under warranty....no, just the first two.

Ensure the steering head bearings are PROPERLY adjusted. Putting bike on c stand and grabbing the wheel and pulling on it wont do it.
They need to be tighter than you think. Tighten them til the bike wont steer properly-it wants to go in one direction and you have to nudge it the other way but it wont go straight-then back off the nut slightly. When it steers properly then the bearings are adjusted properly.

My stockers were both showing cord at 4000 miles.
 Went on a ride and thinking they would be ok for the event, and they went away "quickly"!!
Installed PR-4 GT's; At 5000 miles, the rear was gone. Front still ok.

NOTE: My mileage is low because I do not accumulate lots of road miles;
               I trailer to the rally's, unload and ride the twisties, then trailer home..
                     Yes, I know I'm a sinner.

Since both brands gave me approx. the same mileage, I installed the Shinko Verge II to try a cheap tire.
   I've only put 400 miles on them but they feel ok..
      If they last approx. the same miles, they might be a good {less expensive} alternative for me.

Has anyone else tried the Shinko's??

Ride safe, Ted
