My Hoop's must be slightly cupped.

I can feel the bars wobble back and forth when i back out of my garage.

Next Tires will most likely be Michelin or Avon.

Yup, Hoops are the worst tires I've ever had. My favorites are Pirellis, even though they do wear faster. I like the sticky tires.

Still very happy with it. Glad I bought It.
No mechanical problems at all.
Bought at 6900 miles, has 10,000 on it now.

Needs Tires, Also want to get into the Carb & The Variator Belt and clean up things a bit.

I have been riding it in the Pasadena/Los Angeles/Hollywood Hills/Beverly Hills Areas.
Really works well in Heavy Traffic.
Corners respectably on Mulholland Drive Twisties.
Could use the power of a 400cc engine to get into the fast lane though.

by brother and sister in law live right around mulhulland and canoga! we drive on stunt rode when we get the chance.. And though I am there 6 to 10 times a year, I have yet to get my bike there. I am thinking about just renting a goldwing while I'm there or something. Stunt rode would be a blast on a bike. My brother in law needs a bikecation too. Maybe I'll see ya in the twisties soon. I'll be there thursday.. but again.. in my cage and xterra just isn't as fun around the hills.
