    Default Baby gets a new pair of shoes

    Finally getting the new Dunlop E3s put on. Dropped my wheels off to have them mounted because even though I have a manual changer and a balancer, I just wasn't in the mood to mess with them. The one wheel in the picture was the one that IronMike gave me to try out in the fall. I put it on, took a trip around the block and parked it for the winter. The car tire is just not for me. To be honest, it handled fine and I would have probably tried it for a while except that I have the leveling links on my bike because I wanted it raised an inch in the back. This car tire dropped it right back down to where it was without the links.

    Thinking bout the same as Puc!! This means if I remove Leveling Links and do the car tire it would drop it about 2 inches?? That old Hardtail Pan was lower than that.

    I put Dunlop E3s on my gen 1 last fall, they have a grand total of 0 miles as of yet. They sure look and feel superior to the Metzler Marathons. I did quite a bit of fishing and research before choosing them.

    BTW the car tire looks pretty BA.

    Funny how things change as we get older,, I sure like my snooze in the afternoon,, and after supper,, and watching the news,,, and when I wake up,,,, oh sorry, you were changing tires??? don't have time for that now anymore, I'm just too busy with important things.
    It's nice to be the same
    But
    It's great to be different!

    It still belongs to IronMike. He sold his RSV so I know wants to sell this wheel/tire. Send me an offer if you are really interested and I'll pass it on.

    This bike had white walls when I bought it. I knew that once I needed tires, they would not be replaced with white walls. Not only do I really not care for them but the tires available in white wall are simply not the best tires that you can purchase.

    While we are on tires what is the most popular choice for the Darkside now? The 165/85R15 BF GOODRICH or was there another?? I can't keep track of them all.
