Re: Ink all under my tail
Okay, so I went to the local dealer (would never go there only in this situation I had too as they are close) and bought the Dunlop 207RR's. The message searches gave me the impression they are good tires for my novice street riding skills. In the end, the damage was $418.00!! Of course I replaced both the front and rear as they did have 3,000 miles on them roughly.
Yep, and it was the tip of an ink pen. I didn't want to pull it out until I got there to be on the safe side as if I did it at home, I'd have to load the beast into the truck and that's a pain in the arse. So, as the mechanic slowly pulled it out, I swear it kept coming and coming. Finally, out it was and the hissing started. And I thought I was going to cheat fate and it wasn't going to have been that deep. Man, was I $418.00 wrong! BTW, thanks to all who have given good recommendations on tires on past posts, as always, I'm in good hands with those here at the Org!!
