We have out of state company today but I checked my front tire tread today to see whether it could last through EOM...the middle seemed fine...but the sides were more worn than the middle. That's what I get for running with Ashe that one day. :D

That never would have been the case up North!
We were looking at my front tire the other day. For some reason it looks like a chisel point instead of a nice round tire. I don't get it ;) .

Left it in the garage, as I am on Irma duty, driving around looking for damaged or twisted traffic lights in Midtown and Downtown.

I have done it on the FJR before, since the bike rides up pedestrian ramps really nicely, and parks on the sidewalk like she belongs there.

Yesterday? Too many branches, puddles, debris, etc in the street.

After the storm I often park the bike and drive the truck for a while. I cannot carry two chainsaws, their fuel and oil, all my electrical tools, two 20 foot towing chains and all the other post storm necessities on the FJR. The FJR does not have 4wd and almost 400 diesel horsepower to help move trees, vehicles and misc. debris.

It is all about using the right tool for the job.

Rode it to work again. Only 20 more years until they force me to stop flying...
Don't take yourself so seriously...no one else does.

I have to yank on my yoke.
