    Yeah, 1,500 is a really short life. You must be a savage!

    Dang OEM's got me again this morning. Gawd I can't wait to replace them. Wasn't even going fast, behind a train of slow moving cars. Cars took corner with ease since they were going excessively slow. Nope, not me, back end slides out. Are you kidding me?!? These tires are going to kill me.

    Try standard 36/42 and work from there - I had the 15s on and they were old - never really stepped out and that was pushing it ...

    You're obviously British. I'm not sure what exactly riding like a cock means. But if you knew about the road I was on you would understand the lean angle and tire wear. All was accomplished without doing more than 10 over the limit.

    Google US129/deals gap/the dragon

    It's such a big motorcycle road photographers set up on the side and sell pics. The speed limits 35 but most cars and Harleys can barely maintain 20 the whole 11 miles and 318 turns.

    Sounds great - is it like the place in California where the adverse camber and tricky turns guarantee a spill every day ?

    Either way, it sounds like a great road - you should point us to any vids - we have some great roads here in the UK but spy tech (even aircraft) means even remote places are a speed enforcers heaven....

    The one in Malibu is known as the snake. I've never been but it has a similar reputation. 129 is fat better from what I've been told.
