I love new tyres, especially when you've really run the other ones until they are buggered!

Put a shiny new pair of PR3's on today, rode to the end of the street just in time to see a Canberra car that didn't slow down entering the 50KPH zone in Bungendore embed itself in the back of another Canberra plated SUV that had! No injuries luckily but they must of been doing close to 100! It really doesn't worry me that the coppers blitz my town at Christmas when there are dorks like this on the roads. They would of continued happily through town at 100 oblivious to kids and old people. After all Bungendore is just 'A place you go through on the way to the coast'. Its not like anyone lives here or anything. If I were to speed through their leafy suburb in Canberra they'd want my head on a pike though because "That's different." Morons.

Anyway, I went off and scrubbed the tyres in while at least two sets of wallopers were engaged in clearing up the mess!

I love new tyres. Did I mention that Laughing

I'm due for a new set of shoes. I'm going to try a set of the latest iteration of the Pirelli Diablo Rosso IIs that have improved shoulder compounds and better rain shedding. Should be fun.

I am thrifty  study  my 2010 G8VSE still wearing the original Pirelli Scorpion Sync at 20,000km.

I reckoned the front tyre will show the first bar of TWI in another one or two thousands kilometers. The rear tyre still has about 40% thread left.

I heard positive feedback from my mates about PR3, I'll probably put that on my GRiSO.
