I took a little ride today checking some routes for saturday and getting a little road time on my new front tire.

I had ordered an 18" for the stock wheel, but they shipped in a 17".... so I had a small change in plans.  I've got a 17" tire mounted for my 750K on an early CBR/Hurricane wheel that'll be fitted to an identical NH front end, so I bolted it up to keep the bike standing while I went to have the tire mounted yesterday.

This afternoon I tightened everything up, checked pressure and off I went.  It went just as I'd feared it would, the bike handles so much better I'm probably gonna dread bolting the 18" wheel back on. Even with my completely destroyed fork bushings and leaky seals it handled great.  (fork rebuild parts are on the way too)

This is essentially the same wheel and tire combo I have planned for my K3 except I have a 130 rear for it and the NH wears a 150

Here's a shot of the bike at home

And out on 1A just south of 133 in Ipswich.
