    Hahahaha! that's the funniest thing I have seen in a while.






    "Cupping (Also Called Scalloping)It Looks Like: A pattern of alternating hills and valleys

    The Diagnosis: It happens when worn or damaged suspension components cause the tire to bounce as it travels, coming down harder on some spots of the tire than others. Bad shock absorbers are the usual cause, though anything that connects the wheel to the rest of the car could be a culprit.

    Be careful with your diagnosis, though. Even tire shops sometimes incorrectly identify feathering or heel-toe wear as cupping. A wheel that is out of balance may also cause cupping or bald spots to form, though there will be fewer hills and valleys than you'd see with cupping caused by a failed shock absorber."

    "Feathering:
    It Looks Like:
    Feathered tread blocks are shaped like a series of ramps in a directional wear pattern that goes sideways across the tire. The lower edges of the ramps are rounded while the higher edges are sharp. If you can't tell by looking, run your hands across the tread blocks.

    The Diagnosis: Most often, feathering means the car's toe setting (a measure of the car's alignment) is off. If the toe setting is correct, a worn or damaged suspension bushing could be causing the car's alignment to shift as you drive. Check for worn or damaged ball joints and wheel bearings as well."-

    "
    Heel-Toe

    It Looks Like: Feathering, only the ramps run front-to-back along the tire rather than side-to-side. The leading edge of the tread blocks will be worn smooth while the trailing edge will be sharp. "

    Seeing if there is any interest in my stock Springs. Free. Let me know before Monday or they're going in the metal bin at work. They are off my 93.

    Happy to see you are back on the road after this! I hope you recover more than 20/30, but don't bet on it.. A serious eye injury is agony that keeps on giving.

    Your r/r, jdowns, Allison, and others inspired me to hit the road. I'm planning my own TDF trip in 2 years. Had to give up on taking the xrl though, it chewed up 2 cam lobes that clogged the oil screen and seized the motor. Bought a '09 KLR 650 for that ride.

    Hey! Good to see you back on here! I'm actually back at 20/15 now, so all is well.

    I'm sad you didn't get another XRL! Honda's are seriously under-represented on the Ushuaia run. I just picked up my second one a few weeks ago. The KLR is a good choice for that trip though, it's already pretty much set up for it.
