Two Wheel World finally got my rear tire in and I went down after work to get it mounted up. I kept the old rear as it has some life left in it, just not enough for the upcoming road trip. When I got back I mounted it back up to the bike, got all the bolts torqued down, and dropped it off the center stand for a test ride. The new tires definitely change the feel of the bike. It’s more responsive in curves and easier to get heeled over. I’m now just about ready for the June road trip!
