Just took off Bridgestone HOOP Rear----5250 miles and was wearing square after about 4500 miles....negative effect on low speed handling the last 500 miles----IRC OEM on front. Normally I would have run it up to 2000 miles more, but getting ready for trip to Canada and best to start trip with new tires....or at least set that will last duration of trip.

Long years of touring have taught me, tires can be difficult to find on the road-----needing a tire mid tour can be expensive, time eating. And to think scooters used to have spares

I do own tire work.....but think I need to buy new bead breaker, rear wheel removal on SilverWing is to me real pain in a**.....just plain poor design-----muffler down...I keep spare packing! But did/does allow rear brake pad inspection.....mine will go the 50,000 miles I plan to keep bike...parking brake pads will make it,too.
Although bike is on lift, I make it a point to use tools I carry with----they work and shouldn't delay a trip for lack of tools to get wheel out for example.

Brake disk ok.

Will put if back together today...after nap. Super hot weather sure makes you sweat!

Note on scooter design: even modern Vespas require exhaust system removal for rear wheel take off. I think new BMW scooter has easy to take out rear wheel!-----for next bike, Yamaha SR400 looking better and better to me---simple, had new '78 SR500....they don't break

Why move it...seems you are more interested in form and format than actually riding/wrenching.

The reason we move it John, is because you don't care enough about this forum to learn to post in the proper place.  You've done this many times before when I was a mod, and you were taught in detail how to place your responses in the right forum. You just don't care.  And you are lucky I gave up modding this forum or you would be suspended yet again for doing the same thing. You enjoy being an elder statesman (so to speak) on this forum and taking away your enjoyment until you follow directions is the only way to get you in line.  Being on a forum comes at a price.  The price is proper etiquette on the forum.  If you can't be bothered with that then the forum shouldn't be bothered with you.  Your experience should NOT get you the privilege of a free pass to have mods tolerate the disrespect you show everyone else by deliberately not conforming to our form and format.  Without consequences to you, you will not change.  

Posting in the wrong section and expecting mods to move it is like pooping in the hallway of your home and expecting your mother or wife to put it in the toilet. And if it stays in the hallway, you're okay with that too. And the biggest problem of all is you don't understand why this is bad or wrong. frustrated


Its on the current mods' hands now.

just typing a new topic is fine with me----look
SilverWing is dying/dead bike...I would think any contribution related to bike/riding would be welcomed....but form and format? I though this forum was about riding/wrenching....but I guess I am wrong?

You are ABSOLUTELY WRONG! The introduction forum is for new members to introduce themselves.

You've been whining the same argument for years. You think riding and sharing is enough. Its not.
Every forum is about its subject
Every forum also has form and format.
Good forum members use form and format as an asset to their content.
Bad forum members expect others to format for them.

Current mods may excuse your attitude, so be glad I'm not a current mod.
Go poop in your hallway.
