Finally got the time to ride the bike last week when it was nice out. She really screams, I was so happy to find out how nice it is to ride. New tires are a must, though. I locked the rear for a moment coming to a stop and said oh yeah needs some rubber.
I'll be riding a lot of dirt roads and such in the future, and wonder if anyone has found some good dual sport tires that they like. I was looking at the shinko 705. I'd need to get an 18" rear wheel, but it doesn't look like there's any options for a light trail tire in a 16" rear anyways.
