Re: My First 100 gallons

Harold, I run the factory spec numbers in the tires. It's kinda disappointing given the 298 lbs weight. Nevertheless, I enjoy the SH150I more than my other 2 bikes.

Re: My First 100 gallons

Hopefully the replacement will do better. It seams like all original tires for auto's as well as bikes are substandard. I think they make tires with softer compounds to help with the ride and feel of new machines? I new you would be running max pressures!!! H

Re: My First 100 gallons

That is pretty low mileage...I got about 9500 on the factory rear on my Harley (replaced not because of wear but because of a razor blade!), though my front will be due for a replacement soon. Bummer, thought I'd get another 7k or so out of a front. Rule of thumb is you'll replace two rear tires for every front!

I always bugger it up somehow. I replaced 1 rear for 1 front with the Metzelers and with this Heidenau it looks that the front can easily outlive this second rear

Re: My First 100 gallons

Hi Southerncannuck:

96 + mpg must make it feel like you are not paying anything at all during your local Florida rides! And you have the advantage of a full sunroof every time you head out too
