How far back was that tire combo deal someone posted, and how long was it? I finally got a chance to put some miles on the uly today, and the rear pirelli angel that looked like it would last me at least till I did BYOB might not.
It's obvious the bike came from the flatlands as the center is worn to the point of it having a very noticeable fall off when cornering. I'm thinking of just putting another rear angel on, but they look to be $150. I thought that deal was about that for a set.....

Anyone want to ride Danville on Monday? I'm taking my truck into the dealer in Millersburg for a warranty repair, and am going to toss my bike in the bed so I can ride while they are working on it.

Depends on how long they take. I'm dropping it off at 8am, if it's like every other dealer experience I have had, I should be riding until somtime around August...

She was practicing without a lid at 2 am ? Sad that she died, but it sounds like Darwin was around.

Lots of good pavement in the area. Any state route with three digits will do, and you're surrounded by them at blue rock. SR83 is fun and fast. If you want to head into WV, pop into Zanesville on SR60 and head down SR555 which dead-ends at the Ohio River. From there you can hustle into WV on US50 and then have fun getting lost.

US50->WV 16->WV 47 is a nice easy/fast day loop for paved riding and will put you back into Ohio near Marietta for a nice food stop at Marietta Brewing or The Galley. Both have excellent food and brew.

Found the post and the link, thanks.

Still listed on the website, but the link to order doesn't work, I guess the while supplies last part means now.


back to the debate of what to buy for it......

Or if in Blue Rock take 376 to McConnellsville then 78 to 555. Hmmm maybe 3 of my favorites right there

Back and caught up!

Imaposer, if the front angel will last through another rear, get the matching Angel. If you're replacing both, go with pilot road 2 or 3's for all pavement duty, or scorpion trails for pavement with light off road riding.

Meef, thanks for looking out. That reminds me, I don't think my brake light's working. I should check on that before the night ride!

And finally, had an easy 3 day loop with the girlfriend.

Niagara falls:




Frankenmuth Michingan:



Hell Michigan:


Got home to find another freaking nail in my back tire!

Didn't get through the cords though, so no air leakage.

78 all the way to Glouster is a lot of fun as well, but for some reason I prefer running it in the other direction.

Need to ride SR536 again
