    Have you considered running the Heidnau K60s? I have a set and they are frikkin awesome, the tread blocks on the rear are 12mm thick! A great 50/50 tire and cheaper than the Mefo for longer life (around 8k miles+ dual sported). I got a set for my GSA from Basin Motorcycle Works-Bmw
    [url]www.basinmotorcycleworks.com[/url] for 226 shipped. 110 90 19 and 150 80 17…. Call and talk to them they are great folks, and the price I got was 50 less than if I had ordered direct from the importer Moto-Amore..

    I run one of the Stebel copys from harbor Freight on my RT, loud as hell and the only difference between it and the Stebel is the badging. It’s a Wolo…

    That would depend on your riding style. I like the Dunlop Roadsmarts on my 12rt, but you may prefer something with a softer(stickier) compound, or maybe you want a harder compound to get more milage out of you tires. The suggestion for the PR2s is a good one and Roadsmarts are similar, or possibly you might want to consider the Metzler Sportec M3’s or a set of Michellin Power Pilot CTs for a sportier less touring type of tire. To me tires are like motor oil, everyone has a favorite and while that works for them the next person may have a grossly different opinion of it. These days the tech is getting really good so there are not that many bad choices in the bigger brands, I would recomend staying away from the “cheapy” off brand stuff though.

    I can’t see myself giving up riding anytime soon, and when I am too weak to hold up a 600 pound bike I’ll be shopping for a trike or a side car. I gave up riding for a while when I was in the Navy and missed it ALOT, so when it was feasable to own a bike again I got one. I agree that it is not a good idea to talk someone out of giving it up also. From personal experiance if you quit and it is not the right thing to do, you will be back as soon as it becomes possible to do.
