Thank You Susan Galpin

Thanks to Susan's fine seminar I now will get my monies worth out of my tires. No more just wear 'em out just in the center, but full use of the rubber out to the edge (at least on the rear). The attached photos show the extent of scuffing after my first run on the Dragon in first and a bit of second gear at 7K RPM. Whoo Hoo.

Yes, eagle eyes, that is a piece of wire stuck in the rear tire. It was still there when I washed the bike today at home.
