What did you do to your bike today?

Recommended Posts

Packed it up. Rode it to Kentucky. Drank lots of bourbon.  Headed thru Lynch Kentucky and Hot Springs tomorrow on the way to cabin outside Robbinsville.

Picked these up today.  Now I just need some time to mount them.

That's exactly what I did on my CB500x.

There are some decent compromise tires but...

I washed and waxed it. I also cleaned, adjusted, and lubed the chain. Hopefully everything aligns with my schedule and the weather next Saturday and I can get a long ride in.

I'll let you know when I get around to it.  A 3rd hand is always helpful mounting tires.

How are your angels working out?

The Pirelli Angel GT tires give excellent traction even with under 100 miles on them. I also added a R&G rear hugger and some heat protection for my exhaust as well as a full Guhl Motorsports tune to my 2010 Honda VFR1200F.  

Despite having full power in first and second gear now with full throttle control I feel much safer and more in control. The stock tune had a huge lack of power and throttle control as a makeshift traction control. 
 

The first trip out was a huge success. I was very comfortable at lean and able to give full throttle with minimal tire spin thanks to the Angel GT traction.

I put the new radiator overflow tank on and the fairing. Went for 160 mile ride, stopping at my mom’s, daughter’s and outback for a bloom.

I rode it on the gravel roads in Coshocton. The new tires are better on road than I expected. Nowhere near comfortable as the Anakee, but I can street these and keep pace. I might not try to carry as much speed in a sweeper, but they transition switchbacks fairly well. They're loud..like, I can always hear them. Freeway or 35mph.. they be hummin. Also, I can feel them jiggle when I wiggle. If I push the front hard, the bike holds its line, but it's dancing the electric boogaloo during entry. If I change my riding style, it gets better. I usually take corners at 90⁰ (figuratively, but you get it) and gas hard coming out. These are not those kind of tires. 

Overall... they're neat, but probably overkill for my current stage in ADV. No regrets, cause they look aces on the bike.

Pulled the license plate frame off and made low profile brackets.

Realized the current plate from last year is aluminum and my old one is steel.

Rode 470 miles today. Spent majority of those miles with @Skinny guy. I was blown away by the number of cars that pulled over and let us go by. It was close to double digit numbers. I’m not sure whose educating these drivers. Thanks whoever you are. It was a great day, fun times today.
