    Been away from the forum for a while, since my CL175's motor played out 2 summers ago and I got bit by the classic Mercedes bug. (Still have the Honda, just needs a thorough rebuild.) But I'm back on 2 wheels just in time for nice weather on this '75 XS650B.

    Shows 9,000 mi. on the odometer, runs real good for just coming out of 2 years of hibernation. Already took a nice run over some previously-unknown backroads with my BIL on his '78 GS750.

    Suggestions for a good back tire? I'd sacrifice a little sport/handling for longevity as I plan to put plenty of miles on it. No real need for gravel/offroad manners, either.

    My first bike. I'd like to find another. Last time I bought an 18" rear tire I got Bridgestone Spitfire (S-11?).

    Have fun!
