Would like to see around a hunnered bucks + shipping! Negotiable...

UPS has good rates on tire shipping- have to take it to the real place- NOT one of the shopping center sites that are not really UPS but contractors = where they double the cost~

Good Info... I have been buying tires like crazy around here and have collected a few of those heavy cardboard blocks they use when shipping tires...

Aloha...

I only had to wrap the tire in some plastic-- slightly better than kitchen cling wrap.
Have received tires from UPS with zero packaging, just a label and a tire~

Both of my Michelin tires came to me bare, with just an address tag hard wired to the tire.

No need at all to wrap them if they go by the brown truck

So you tried it and didn't like the tire?

A bump for you - The Austone is an AWESOME tire for the 1500! In my opinion. I would buy this but I just bought a used one from a guy on this web site about a year ago and am good for a couple more years or about 25k more...

Vote one for year-round riding! Austone Darksider PVT (Passenger Vehicle Tire)

Most recent Wing: 128k+ on the 2000 GL1500 SE (Just totaled) due to being rear-ended...
Current ride (for now) 2015 Triumph Trophy SE

Previous wings: '78GL1000, 13k mile '77 GL1000 (resto at home, neat story!), '81 GL1100 Interstate.
Previous non-wings: CB360T, Suzuki GS550L, Yamaha 650 spcl (first bike!), Silverwing 500, Yamaha Spectre 1100, VFR700F, CB900 Custom.

Oh... I actually liked the tire. I didn't like the rubbing... had those saddle bags and the wheel on and off the bike three times... and no matter what I tied up, where I tied it... or what I tied it too... it rubbed...

Save your breath... I talked to everyone I know... looked at every picture posted anywhere... and read every word of every post about pulling that rear fender up and it just plain did not work on my bike.

So finally I got so tired of taking the bike apart and putting it back together again I just bought a light side tire... But other than that the tire ran great...

I just needed to get old gurl on the ground for summer and I was running out of time...

I can tell you where the Rub is if you would like to know and it has nothing to do with the rear fender. Take the wheel off and look towards the front of the bike there is a rubber piece that stops the tire from flinging the mud and junk up into the rear of the engine. It is held in place with Rivets if you remove the rivets and move the rubber inside the hole away from the tire and hold it on with some carefully drilled holes and tie raps the rubbing noise you hear will go away. It took me a month of fooling around to figure that out but once done I have had no problems for over 2 years. Oh just to say the Rivets stick out into the tire space and they are the rubbing noise.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Let me talk to Andy see if he is coming your way and I might get it back from you. LOL The tire has a lot of miles but not on the ground!
