the rear tire change went MUCH better than the front tire. No scratches. And....it was MUCH easier than the front tire change. As such, they only charged a Half Hour of labor. So tire and labor was 240 out the door...tax and all.

So the front tire...which wears more quickly (about 7500-8000 for Sherry and I)....costs about 360 out the door from my dealer to do labor....cause doing the front end without scratching is a bit more time consuming. doing the rear tire...which lasted just under 12k for me, is cheaper. About 600 to do both. Compared to my Valk...which is about 450 to do both...that isn't that bad. if only the front tire would last a bit longer! Wish Avon would make a tire for this bike....but they say it just isn't worth it to them. Too bad.....i go 16-17k on the rear of my Valk and 20k plus on the front with Avons!

I like the way 190 handles better than 200 or 210. And, better stopping with 190 than the thinner 180. I downshift to stop. I dont use the rear brake except in parkinglots it seems.

I mounted it at 27,000 and at 34,250 I have 2mm to go on the tread.
