790 Duke on Mt. Mee Queensland, Australia

Picked up the bike on Wednesday, 240 klm ride on Thursday. Quite a blast but new tyres make me nervous.

What sort of pressures did you run?

Mt Mee is a bit of a mongrel - the first part going north is super bumpy and then the longer corners are full of cops and this bike is a bit windy over 90kph...

Was there meant to be a pic uploaded?!

Tyre pressures were whatever was in them from the Dealer. I should try a bit harder I know and I will check them before I venture out again! Yes, I thought I attached a photo but my PC skills are on a par with my riding skills. I'll have another go. I suspect the picture size at 4.51mB was too large. I often don't read the instructions either so that wouldn't have helped.

Tyre pressures checked out as 33psi front and 35psi rear. Seems OK at that with no bad behaviour exhibited by the tyres yet.
