PS Larry the front RS you left on the FJR is still there. Over 10,000 miles on it. It's completely worn down on the sides and middle. No cords yet, but my local friends say I should change it.

It's been to most of the A states - Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona.

A Power RS? here’s mine at 5200 miles of Georgia fun, the one that followed wore down even quicker and got replaced because the rain made it dangerous.

So you have not almost crashed on that POS many times. 10K on a m/c tire might be a record for you, gotta be granite by now.... change it.

since it pretty tire time:

Spotted in the wild....the elusive ICEBEAR Maddog. Just this once, hotboot approves of CT deployment.

I recall seeing some wide tire mod kits on those at the gap, I can only assume they were the cheapest thing made in China and installed by the least experienced. Some of them while going down the road would visibly undulate like a vulcanized belly dancer on her back, is they ever got enough speed I suspect they'd turn into more of a Mexican jumping bean.

Apparently Icebear is a thing, had to look them up. Not cheap but not Honda / Yamaha expensive either.
Single side black and stretched- perfect for the small town or urban 20 sumpthin' dweller.
