    New Shinko 705 tires. First time something else than Pilot Road...
    Now I undertand when somebody mentioned that they tend to "dive" when turn... A bit scary...

    Yup, they do take a little getting use to but man i like mine a lot.

    Today i beat mine up pretty bad on some horrible shale/rocky mountain roads(i'm headed back here later this week and i will have the GoPro with me). I rode/climbed from 2200 elevation to 4719' and made it up to a summit that i had in previous years hiked many times (during hunting season of course-others may, but i do not hike for fun). I even saw a huge cow Elk and her little calf that was with her on a trail i was on while i was rounding a corner. I slowed as fast as i could to let them pass without any problems. Super cool to see the two of them today(of course i did not have the new gopro with me, ratz)! So here are a few pics from todays ride.

    I'll have to try a standard size front next time. Handling isn't great with the 130/80 front, especially with the forks pushed down a bit to help clearance between fender and radiator (as fender is raised). With a stock size front I'll be able to drop the fender back down and put the forks where they belong, and then be able to play with geometry by changing shock length (right now it's an RSV4 shock set as long as it'll go).

    Usal Road certainly beat things up somewhat and they worked reasonably well. Of course, it's still a (to me) heavy bike without enough suspension travel.

    This morning my first commute to work on Shinkos (about 40 miles on I-80, 15 miles on US-6, and 5 miles city streets) - scary. They do kinda "dive in" as somebody described (Dave?) Need some time to get used to it.

    Although, felt couple times the handlebar was slightly wobbling ?!?

    4pm= I'm off from work and gearing up to head back up to the "No Tell'em Ridge" with the GoPro to see if i can grab/catch a shot of those Elk again! :{)

    7pm= I'm back. I did get some great GoPro footage but alas no Elk, no Moose, Deer, Bears, Mountain Lions... nor even a measly Grouse! My son Micah has the footage and will be making/editing a nice video from it and we will post it soon so stay tuned for episode II... "4th of July Pass, the mountain top & seeing the bowl". :{)

    Except for threading those miserable terminal nuts that want to flop around and not catch. 2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    Made a quick couple of hundred mile ride over to Othello Wa and meet up with "Rainier". Great to finally meet him and he sold me a nice Aprilla shock for my NC that he was not going to use. Too bad he was to able to ride his '13 DCT over to meet up as it was having battery/starting issues. Anyway, great to have meet up and i so enjoyed our conversation Rainier!! :{)

    I can't remember if it's 8 mm or 10 mm but get a socket and short extension and it's easy to get those annoying bolts started by hand and synched down using 1/4" ratchet
