Normally I do two rears to front also, but last fall the front looked good and it was just time for a rear. Couple thousand miles in and the front looks like crap……it went very quickly and maybe I just wasn’t keeping up with pressures – don’t know. It’s an old ’82 GS1100E, so I can’t really run modern rubber, but I’ve been using Pirelli Sport Demons the past several tires. I like em – sticky – but they don’t have a great amount of life. I’d like to try some Avon Road Riders next, but first I need one more Pirelli up front.
I used to always go to Bill’s and I still would, but for little stuff we’re on opposite sides of town. I went to Motorcycle Solutions for the past rear – just damn expensive. For a tire that cost about $100, I shouldn’t have to give him $210 when I pick the bike up.
If Madison Motorsports is cheap and I have to take off the wheel, that’s a breeze on the front…..I’ll call them.
Is Team Triumph Lyall’s shop? (bought my first bike from him in 1971 I think – on Williamson Street).
