Since I started my scooter/motorcycle journey I have been bitten hard by the riding bug. I am approaching the two year mark between the scooter and motorcycle. I ride a lot, every day in fact, through all sorts of weather rain, fog, winter, spring, summer, I commute and do a lot of 'tootling'. Motorcycle Man was inspecting my bike and decided I was due for a new rear tire. We shopped around and ordered a Metzeler Lasertec tire. Motorcycle Man has had Metzeler tires on his bike for a few years and really likes them. He is sold on them for riding in the rain because they move the water really well and are fairly sticky for a street tire. I ordered the new one online because no one had it in stock and they were on back order until November, I guess it is pretty popular tire. When it arrived I went out to Kenco Motorcycle in Sooke and they installed it in a jiffy and the service was GREAT and very reasonably priced. I am a happy Moto Mama now and today I went riding with two of my girlfriends. We logged about 200km, I have to wear off the coating on the new tire ;) The tire is fabulous, it makes a huge difference to the ride and steering seems better. So I am pretty happy.

Checking out the wear - diagnosis no tread
Old shoe - well worn
Voila! lets hit the road baby!
(I had to wear the coating off, so I rode 200km's today)
