Billings MT and Yellowstone

Well it's not a motorcycle trip but...

Driving from Chicago to Billings for the State Motorcycle Safety Administrator's Conference. There will be vendors and programs for instructors. On the last night of the conference, my wife flies in for the reception. Then Sunday morning we are off to 4 nights in Yellowstone and camping our way back home.

Story and pictures to follow.

Time for tires

I had a feeling that my front tire was a little worn. At 11,000 miles I noticed a slice on the side of the rear tire and changed both tires. At 24,500 miles the servicewoman at the shop said that I needed the front tire replaced. When I came in to pick up the bike from the service (they had to order the tire which will be in later) I asked the mechanic how was the rear tire. His response, it's past 50% worn. That was all I needed to hear, so I had them order tires for both front and rear. There is too much riding on those two wheels to risk it.
