I only change it when vicky verky rides with me
You should increase it to 38-40 checked cold in the rear (tire) when you ride with vicky verky. She must be a heavy weight:naughty
unless your running Metzler ME880's which like 44psi front and 46psi rear cold, if Vicky is on the back (and the wife dosen't find out) 48psi in the rear.
I have Dunlop H-D stock tires on my Heritage and although the book says 36psi in both, I keep 40psi in my rear tire all the time. Linda rides with me so much on the weekends I just don't find it necessary to lower the rear pressure to 36 when i drive it to work and back during the week.
That's the reason my Mrs. has her own bike.
But I'd love her even if she was square & green!!:grose
The more common tire weight equasions should be in the small manual that came with your bike & it applies unless you have went to another tire. Most of my riding is on hi-ways where the speed limit is 55+. I prefer running my tires 2 lbs over the recommended weight because the bike rolls better & is more economical.:eam
I don't ride double, but if I was I would probably follow the manual and add the extra pressure.
I'm sending the Mrs a copy of this post, boy are you in trouble!:54:
Isn't that what friends are for?
Aww bless, that is such a nice thing to say on forum.:ap
