    Ride-On Experience

    For what it is worth, I recently discovered a wire (looks like a paper clip) clinging to my rear tire. When removing it I found it had the end embedded in the tire. After removing it I put some soapy solution on the tire to see if there was air leaking. Sure enough there was a puncture. i have...

    Canadian documents required

    Another rider and I are going to be riding up to British Columbia and Alberta in mid August. My riding bud seems to think we will need more than just a passport to enter Canada. We realize we will need a valid drivers license and registration and perhaps proof of insurance. Will our U.S. proof...

    Michelin Road 5 vs Road 5 GT

    mixing PR2's and PR4's

    Have any of you tried Michelin PR2 front and PR4 on rear. I like the PR4 rear tire but the PR4 front seems to develop a strange wear pattern compared to PR2's I have used in the past. I never ride 2 up and I weight 145lbs. Short of getting caught in a thunder storm and no place to take shelter...
