So, it's been a month since I got my C14 and I put 1000 miles on it with 500 in being in the last week or so.  Mileage is about 4200 give or take few.  I'm ready to spoon on a pair of PR3s in anticipation of an upcoming long weekend of riding.

I will probably change the rear drive oil since I doubt it's been done yet.  Especially if there are as many shavings in it as reported by others recently.

Hi,
     Whats wrong with the OEM tires? I've got 4000 on mine and hope to go to 6000! ;D

Nothing really.  I think I could get more.  I'm giving the rear to a friend and like to start the season and a weekend like this on fresh tires.   
I should do about 1500 miles on my trip and on the types of roads we'll be riding on, I'd like them to have plenty of meat.

Its just you will have to learn how to ride your 14 again. When you make the change, let us know what the difference is in the tire section.  :)
