Getting the bike ready for the trip to Colorada on July 1. Checked the tread depth on the Pirelli RF and it sticks 4/32 in the middle at 2 places and slightly better depth on the sides of the tread. Dont think I better risk the ride out West on this one, probably a 4,500 mile trip. I checked my records this evening on the mileage that Ive gotten on this Pirelli and it was 21,318 miles, a lot better than the 8,500 I used to get on a MT. Question is, Im thinking it might be difficult to lay the bike down and get the rear tire out and the new one in without damaging the rear Centramatic. Is it safer to use my friends lift considering how much the Centramatics cost?
