Is she carving it up yet?

I would love to run a sport tire, but its not practical. Yesterday was pretty much the shortest route to be able to ride in a canyon. Thats 45 miles of straight to ride 10 miles of fun.

You might try the S21 RC. Not the touring tire the AGT is but I made 4500 miles on a rear.
Plus the current pricing makes them a great value.

I don't see a need for sport tires on the street the ST tires are so good. With my RS III's I've scraped my pegs, have no chx strips and have never had a hint of losing traction. Steering is light and accurate too, not to mention I'll probably get 12k+ miles out of them.

Birt, I think you are correct. Plus, the sport tires are in their prime for such a short time. I wish there was a way to compare grip with my worn pp3 as compared to a new sport touring tire.

Kenneth she is getting ready to carve it up if these rain systems would quit blowing through ever week, another rainy weekend it’s like 4 in a row lol, she started riding her bike to work this week, I finally got her a puig dark smoke wind screen coming, I wish she would put a cork in that loud ass exhaust I bought her lol, hopefully it want damage her hearing to bad. I was thinking yep if she had a nk1 with headers and straight through brawlers she would be right at home.

Sounds like a good reason to schedule a daughter/ dad track day. You can tell the wife it makes her a safer rider, and of course you have to go and be her coach.

Kenneth I think the ladies don’t trust us lol, I’ve only aired my wife out a couple of times and the only time I put tears in her eyes was in a high hp boat I had a long time ago lol, well there was a few races in my built Camaro on nitrous but she never protested lol since most of the cars I raced were screwing with me. Except for the time I lit it up leaving a red light when a smart ass truck was messing with me, she said did you not see that cop over in the incoming lane. I said don’t worry we will be long gone before he gets through the light and turned around. Lol I don’t know why these woman worry.
