    A Surprise

    I was doing a little cleaning on the bike the other day and decided to take rear wheel off and give it a good cleaning. Everything went fine, this was
    my first time to remove the rear wheel from the 1800. The surprise came after I got the tire off and notice the date the tire was made. 8 yrs old. The other surprise
    was how badly cupped it was and I mean bad. That confirmed why it was singing to me so much. So now I have to buy a new tire that I was expecting to have to
    buy.. Of course you have good with bad, at least now I have 2 new tires and ready to ride... :)

      I always notice how nicely the bike tips in when you have fitted new rubber.

      How are the rear pads while you are under there?

      All the brake pads are fine. I checked the front about 2 months ago when I had the new front tire put on. I brought the rear tire in the house
      while I had it off the show the wife and before I could say anything she said " what's wrong with that tire".. Getting the rear tire put on the
      wheel tomorrow.
