Got well over 10k out of all of the last sets of tyres I had on my SV doing 50 mile a day commutes and a wee bit of fun stuff too. I'll leave it for other people to gauge what sort of rider I am.

Re: Dealer connector

Re: Christmas With The Drinking And Such

Most of the ones these reprobates will be wearing will have been done for specific events (GM usually) so you had to be there... or, eh, be square.
