9:00 am, getting read to head out. Dave borrowed his neighbor Roger's Suzuki C90 for the day. Roger had made a number of modifications including dropping it 3" and swapping out the rear tire for a car tire. It certainly looks cool and makes for a long-lasting rear tire, but motorcycle tires have a round profile for a reason and the squared off tire made the bike handle like a truck. Amusing though.

This one's for my records. This is what 5k miles of freeway riding (by the previous owner) looks like on the stock tires. Tire wear and profile change has a significant impact on the handling of the bike during turning and braking.
