Well just got back from the Island (nice win from Casey!)
new power 2ct on the front (less than 200 k's on it) rear power 2ct with just on 1000k's on it
In the rain, (only rained for about 600 k's) had a couple of big slides whilst cruising - was in Victoria so the highway patrol guys were savage, hiding in bushes, portable cameras you know normal revenue raising tricks (oops a bit carreid away) anyway because of said police attention and wet road was taking it very easy, tankbag with just a sleeping bag and gearsack back flipped and sitting on the pillion pad.
Anyway the tyre was moving around, felt as slippery as frog snot and was basically not a fun day. It was that horrible that I got some blokes that drove down to take both the gearsack and tankbag back in a car with them.
Still felt bad on the trip home even though it was hot (31 degree celcius at Cann River at lunch time) This time the front was moving and the back was spinning up out of corners
As I was flogged when I got home and rode to work early this morning I will check the pressures tomorrow before I go to work. got the fitter to put 36 in the front and I run 40 in the back. Will see if his gauge gives the same reading as my gauge and adjust accordingly, then if still slippery will try 32-34psi.
This sucks as I have used Michelins for the last 10 years (macadam 90 & 100, hi sports, pilot sports, pilot roads and pilot powers) and up till now have loved them. Right now I think the old Macadams had more grip then the front.
BTW what a race
