But you must remember to adjust the Heisenberg compensator in relation to your stratenator valve before changing the turn signal indicators.



OK then, have a good ride.

Default Re: Circumferential doesnt print

Because it has the letters "c u m" in it, and they are filtering that. See, if I type (that won't print), but if I type c u m, that will.



Problem is, the preview mode won't even show you what does get filtered. (I guess they don't want people to know, so they don't find a way around it.)



I don't know why, or what they are doing to filter these things, but it has been brought up before, and nothing has ever been resolved. Whole words should be filtered, not any word containing some key word (which can be part of many ligitimate words).

Default Re: Tire wear

My lousy wear on MEZ4's translated into 11,800 miles, my bike is in the garage till Nov 5th when I have my 12k service and new MEZ4's put on. I just struck cord on the rear with both sides on the front nice and slick. About a 1.5 inch bald stripe on the rear, .5 inch stripe on the left front, .25 inch strip on the right front. Still plenty of center tread on the front. Im 6'6" 300 and ride rather aggressive on my commute (45 miles 3/4 slab with 1/4 twisty canyon daily each way) these tires have impressed me. My k12rs seems to agree.

Looks like Metzler is using a more eliptical profile for the M-1 than they did for the MeZ-3 or MeZ-4. That would make the tires closer in profile to Dunlops.



What does the varying belt winding do to tread life? Would a softer center make for more tread life in the straights or would it mean that you have to really be a squid to have even tire wear?
