After 18250mi, I figured it was time for a new set of skins. All said & done I have $370.00 invested in a new set of Metz 880ME tires. 110/90/19 up front & 180/70/15 on the rear. I have to give kudos to a fairly new MC shop where I live "Capitol City Motorsports" for doing the change out. The cost of labor was $73.00. Tires & dynabeads came to $297.00 This young man changed my tires out without an appointment within less than an hour. I will be telling all my fellow riding brothers to give their business to him, he also told me, next time call him first, and let him sell me the tires for a lot less than I could get them online. Very good MC mechanic & works on EVERYTHING!! HD, YAMMY, SUZI, HONDA, KAWI, plus the Brit bikes, and German bikes as well. I hope he does well, as he deserves to do so. We had a very good conversation about the VTX in general & he knew way more than any Honda tech I've ever talked to. This guy will have ALL my business that I can't do myself. Here are a couple of before & after pics of my rear tire:

Glad to hear you got new tires, but more importantly, sounds like you've got a great safety net for those mods/fixes (hopefully more mods than fixes) that you can't do or get in over your head with.
