It might be flat, well OK it's flat but we do have some winding roads around our many lakes.

Well the new rear tire is on just a little bit of belt adjusting in the morning and weather permitting I will give it a good test ride.

Thanks again to everyone for the advice/suggestions.

i think i got between 8-10 outta my rear, 11k out of the front. ill have to dig out the service records to see what it was. i got down to the cords, did rear tire and brakes at the same time. But i do tend to get on it a lot, the brakes were another issue. Ive got some time at the drag strip on the current tire as well. its not smooth in the center yet. once i figure out when i got the tire on i could tell you how long its been there.
