Mounted the Yokohama this weekend. Done about 200 miles on her so far. Takes some getting used to. After about 100 miles the extra steering input needed on straight roads becomes second nature. The way it takes a turn is something you would have to feel to believe. When that rear tire is turned up on edge and you are cranking it through a turn, it feels like it's on a rail! I raised the front forks 10mm in the clamps, lowering the front end a little bit, and played with different tire pressures. I think I like 30 in the rear so far. [There is an extensive thread on this over at the .com site.] The biggest draw back is coming down my 1/8 mile, highly crowned, gravel driveway. It's kind of a bear on the gravel. Also going slow through town on really rough roads, with sunken lanes, etc. requires some effort. I will have to put more miles on it to make up my mind completely. The 245/50/16 Yoko. is a little taller than my worn out Metz. was. Rpms at 65 running about 200 less. The ground clearance seems a little better in a turn, no problem putting some metal on the ground. I'll post a pic of the bike soon.
