Well, I've began my journey down the path to the dark side!
Yesterday I placed my order for 1 Yokohama Avid Envigor, through Discount Tire Direct after calling around town looking for someone that sold it locally (and yes, got to hear everyone's opinion about putting a CT on a Motorcycle as well as some rather humorous opinions on the matter).
I got the tracking info today and I should have my tire Friday evening! I'm on night shift this week so I won't be able to do anything with it until Saturday when I get up... I'm anxious to get it mounted and broke in! I'm also looking forward to getting to "Wrench" on my X some more as I remove the back wheel for the first time. I also ordered 80 degree valve stems and some Dynabeads so as soon as it all gets here, I'll be set to go! vtxpreacher knows someone local who will mount it, so it would appear I'm all set once I get the shipments in! :mosh:
I'll update this post as my journey takes me farther down the path to the dark side and even though it won't be nearly as in-depth as Cage SC's write up, hopefully it will have some benefit for someone else preparing or trying to decide if they will take the path.. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to get some milk for my cookies when they arrive!
