I'm sure the bee got the worst end of the ordeal.  Give us a PR4 review after they are scrubbed in, OK?  tomp

FWIW, health care is very expensive, period.  (no politics here)

I just finished putting the wheels back on my bike. I now have a brand new set of PR4-GT!!!!!!  Hopefully I can go for a ride around the lake tomorrow. Last time I did this ride, I used my chin to stop a bee.

Let us know what the score is with new tires. I'm about to pull the trigger on a new set myself.

And by the way, don't do the bee thing again!  :)

I will never put another brand/style set of tires on the '14 other than PR4-GT's. Recommend the
190-55 over the 190-50. Big improve in the turning and also corrects the speedo, not to mention
many more miles.

On my 270 mile ride yesterday, I was enjoying the new tires. Cornering is much better. Although I think I need to bring the front wheel back for another balance. I can feel it slightly at the upper speeds.

Installed Projekt Hand Guard/Deflectors, Throtlemiester, pull back handlebar adapters, R&R front brake rotors( Scuffed the surface to remove and pad build up) hope that cures the brake pulse.

Would be interesting to see a photo of the hand guards on the bike.   :)

I hope you don't plan on riding very long, because they change up tires all the time. In two years, those tires will be yesterday's news, and very hard to find.

  Maybe PR5 GT's?   PR2's are still available all over the web, so maybe the 4's will be made for a good while to come, too.... Have 3's on my RT and they are great and wearing better than the Z8's on the 14.

I rode mine to Tampa Powersprts and looked at the new Versys 1000.  That biash is NICE!
