It's a replacement Trailwing...we went through a rear tire on both of the bikes. We run the pressures at 30 to 32 pounds for the street. My original never did anything like that. None of the cracking or weather-checking. I ordered both rear tires together so they're from the same batch, and mine saw more miles and harder use. ?? We're switching to K270 Kendas.
Folks, I've always wanted to take my little 200 on a long road trip, so tomorrow I'm taking off for the North Dakota badlands for a look-see. Should be about a 1700 mile round trip. I'm going to ride down the valley of the Little Missouri River. I want to stick to gravel and dirt roads as much as possible for a fresh look at the Dakotas. Beyond that, I don't have any set schedule or itinerary.
