Those tires are the snow tires for my car, and my two daughter's cars. Nothing more.

Boooooring. You could have lied and googled up an Ariel Atom or something fun. At least you are honest though. :D

Beautiful color. That would have been my first choice if I had the option when I purchased mine. Enjoy the ride!

I bought the same model last January, I also like the color. I get a lot of compliments, I am sure you will as well. Have fun riding.

When I bought mine, it was the color rather that the AE option that sold me on it... Love that color...

Now I can only get the clutch clunking issue to be solved ...

Ok, so the bike is nice, and I mean really nice. I didn't even know these came in that color and I love it. but....

I think whatever vehicle all those tires is for also deserves some picture whoring time here as well. Let's see it!!!

You keep each tire individually wrapped?

I have an 08AE. I think they all make a clunk to some degree when you go from neutral to first gear. If it bothers you, turn the bike off while in first. It will start in first with the stand up and holding in the hand brake. I normally park my AE in gear anyway except in my garage for two reasons. A good anti-theft deterrent as you can't move the bike and there is no way I know of to get the bike into neurtal without the key on. And the bike can't roll off the sidestand on uneven parking or windy situations.

The tire bags make the tires easier to move around (the bags have handles), it protects them and the aluminum wheels, and keeps them clean.
I ride one mile at a time.

So the 2009A has black wheels - first year they did that. They didn't do that for the AE model?

-- it's hard to tell where the bike stops and the farkles begin --
