So, I bought my Z back in March.... I rode it every chance I got, and within the first two months I put 2400 miles on it..... Well, With my abuse, plus the miles from the owner before me, it was time for new tires.... Financially, it could not have come at a worse time.... We took a trip to Disney and the wife and kids took all my money (they do that often....) so I have been suffering for the last 2 months, not being able to ride... I actually rode it to the point that I could see the steel belts (not safe at all) but my safer side finally got the better of me.... Well... Long story short, after a long two months, my new rubber is here!!! I had a box waiting on me when I got home from work!! I am getting the tire put on the rim in the monring and I will be back on the road... I feel just as excited about riding it now as I did the day I bought it!!! I can not wait!!
