Cool. Never knew that about the # date thing. Mind you, I go through at least one set of tires a year, so it'll never be an issue.

I'd shoot myself before owning a bike with tires that last 3500 miles.



I'd have to buy 3+ sets every year. :-/

It's got about the same technology too. I think it's a twin with an exposed belt drive for threshing machines. Very hip tractor.

Nope, we just got dumped on with snow and are going to probably get another foot by the weekend. That and I haven't taken delivery of it yet. I'm quite excited about it.

"$3.00/gal is the floor not the ceiling. $4.00 by the end of the summer.. " - kpaul, May 26, 2006.



Price at my corner station, February 28, 2007 - $2.20.



"SeruzaWa was so wrong so many times...."



That would be "projection."

Of course I'm wrong.. I'm married.



And, in addition, unlike others I could mention, I've never made any special claims to be always right or a genius or to have high MSF scores. As if any of that meant anything.

6 years? Geez, I am lucky to have a rear last 6 months on any of my bikes and the longest I've ever had a front was 2 years, on my sidecar rig.



Solution, get new tires and start riding the bike. Geez...



6 years, you have got to be kidding....
