Most have electronic cruise control and are super slabbers..........

Yeah, perhaps they spool up slow and steady and stay constant the entire ride, still 14,000 miles is really a long time for a tire that many people get 5,000 -8,000 out of.

Just the thought of the super-slab is making me sleepy... Or maybe that's work and the afternoon doldrums.

They just gave me the name and number of the distributor when I had my problem. I never called, I figured the best they would do is give me another 244. Was just glad to make it home.

Good luck.

Pretty sure it doesn't involve the rev limiter or stoppies. Two things you'd miss for sure.

Sorry I know it seems like I may have fallen off the face of the earth. Just trying to get through these last few weeks and managing the chaos of trying to keep helicopters in the sky's of Afghanistan. Excited to get home and take some time off.

Ghost I'll start working on a logo for RTB3 if nothing else I'll get it done when I get home.

Odie.

I have a Jetta GLI being built and shipped to Jersey. So until some time in mid June, I'm bike only.
