New battery, it drained enough in 10 hours to leave me standed at work.

Re: What have you done to/for your bike today?

I put a Bridgestone RS10 on the rear of my rc51. 200/55.
For a couple months I never had a chance to go try it out in the canyons, just riding around town for about the first 300 miles.
Last Sunday I got to put a 297 mile ride thru my favorite canyon and mountain roads.
That tire freaking rocks!
It's not placebo either, I can feel better grip than my previous 190/55. If I remember right, it's advertised to have about 50% larger contact patch, and it stays flat rather than slightly cup in the middle (if that makes sense).
Whatever - all I know is this is my new tire!

Re: What have you done to/for your bike today?

REFRESH:
Took advantage of someone ordering the wrong pitch sprockets, and got them for cheap. Going to try a 15/47 (-1/+4) setup on my silver 954, and put the 15/45 (-1/+2) on The New Kid.



Since I haven't been able to find a decent stuntbike or project bike (locally) for a reasonable price, I may decide to have a little fun with a bike that's already "salvaged".

Thanks Gunk
I'm soooo sold on this tire for the way I ride and all the mountain/canyon roads in my region.
The only drawback is that the rear tire will wear just as fast as the S20 did. I ran that before switching to RS10. I get one season out of it, so I gotta buy once a year. I'm probably running low pressures that don't maximize the mileage, however, I have grip and confidence galore! So it's totally worth it for me.

Re: What have you done to/for your bike today?

Unslow: about 2000 - 2500 miles.
I can normally wipe the chicken strips clean off, but on this 200/55 I still have about 5mm's. That's all street tho. On a track they'd be gone in about three laps!
Can't say enough good things about this amazing tire!

I can't tell what you got there in the pics. Grips?
