Tourance, Anakee, TrailWing... oh my!

My head hurts. All of these are within a few dollars of each other. From all the user reviews I have read, they are getting nearly identical mileage on the Strom. Eeeney, meeney, miney, mo.

Don't forget the Pirelli Scorpion Sync...

I'm on the lookout for continental TKCs so I can go ripping!

Isn't the TKC a knobby? Are you planning a trip up here again?

Well, as much rain as we have had in the last month, you can imagine what our off-road section looks like now.

But, I digress. I am calling the shop and telling them to order the Tourance. They are more expensive, but my Suzuki rewards card has afforded me one free tire, so that should offset the price.

Stupid $%^@# Suzuki and their wheel removal.

Rear wheel was a walk in the park; one cinch pin, castle nut, bump axle, and it's out in less than a minute.

Front wheel can kiss the broad side of my left cheek! The front axle is held in place by one pinch bolt. After this, the rider will need to go back into town and begin a scavenger hunt for a 12mm Allen wrench (because Suzuki in their infinite wisdom neglected to include one in the toolkit again). After returning from the trip, commence to popping that central vein in your forehead along with a few vertebra trying to break it loose. Ahhhh, the wheel is free right?
Wrong! Not only must the rider remove the calipers from the forks, but because of the 19" wheel, a standard front fork stand does not lift the Strom to a desirable height. One must now proceed to remove a half-dozen bolts from the front fender to raise it enough to slide out said wheel. OK, i'm done, where's my beer?

Well, everything went back on much easier. Either that, or the multiple beers I drank made it seem much faster.
