Rode his bike today in the rain with Sunny on that looks real close to tread pattern of Dunnie winter sport.I got to tell ya , that baby is a sweet tire. Sticks great in rain ,enough so front washed out on me.He did not see it happen: Smooth ride and fells round as my beloved Falken. Huge rim protector also, too bad they do not make anymore 195/55's I am not running a under my bike.But if they start to make them again, I am buying one to try :thumbup: Good find buddy (kinda) :p

Speedo seen 40 twice, just before you shifted to 2nd after leaving the parking lot. And while stopping at same lot 20min later, for a total of 1/4 nano second. Rocket's poor bike.:eek:4:

Well wet roads is a great test for traction on car tires. Well front end washed out on me on The Yellow Rocket. I saved it but it was not graceful, but I saved it.:22yikes: Peed a little but I was wet anyways ;)
