    Not BAckwards.:no
    I mounted it to close to the swingarm, it seems that at speed , it was "standing up", kind of like a slick on a drag car, and rubbing the swing arm :doh.
    In a hurry, the night before the ride, I mounted the tire to the rim, set the chain tension< too tight at first, then after I readjusted and got the tension right, I went to bed.
    Next night, I loaded up and road to the Farm. It felt like the bike was dragging a parachute on the way to Havana, but I just assumed it was the oversized load. :D
    Truth be known, I'm sure the tire was toast well before breakfast Saturday Morn
    Complete operator error. I'll buy another Scorpion. after I ride 1,000 miles of cloverleaf to get my money's worth out of this tire :lol3

    That really ruins the story I was telling of the guy who rode the tread right off his tires he was so fast...

    Oh well, I think I'll leave that part out :D

    Hey Taki, been wondering, what's up with you! I call Radek now and again and get some info. I ride by the farm on adventure rides or Bernadotte lunch rides, but not quite like in the past. I need to stop by chains sometime, just to make sure he is still there.

    What are you riding? I just got back from a ride to TN, RibFest 2014 Nashville BMW Clubs Adv Rally.
