Let's talk about tires, oil, break-in procedures, body position, sex, religion, cell providers and the economy.

elroy121 just put on some Q2's on mine. My old Pilot Powers were beyond past it. So far so good on them! Order from Motorcycle Superstore and they'll arrive in 2 days.

Randal: [to Dante] Would you grow up!
Becky: [to Dante] OK, I'm only telling you this because we're friends, but sometimes, in the heat of the moment, it's forgivable to go ass-to-mouth.
Randal: [chuckling] Ha! I knew it.

Actually Katana 17" rims powercoated white, front 120/70 and rear 160/60. Look better than the original black, but a bitch to keep clean.

I can't imagine the horror or having white rims keeping those clean.

Thanks, I've had it since 1993. Wife wants me to sell it, but i 've had it longer than her. You got to have priorities.

Q2s are great tires. A bit of an overkill if you will only commute on it. If you like to rail and change tires every 2-4K (depending on how aggressive you ride) miles or so they are great.
