    took the sporster in to the dealership today to have a new rear tire put on. also had them change fork oil since it was the only thing I had left to complete the 10,000 mile inspection. When I came home I couldn't believe how much better the ride and handling was. And when I paid the bill I found out they reduced the shop rate from 75 to 62 bucks an hour. Good day for riding.

    Any bikes handling should sharpen up a bit when a new tyre is fitted and when the fork oil is replaced
    take it easy on the new tyre for the first hundred miles takes them a wee while to settle down
