Now go make sure that front is NOT above 20psi. I am serious. I couldn't believe the difference. And Guinness is the best. It says so in the Book of World Records. ;)

Oh yeah, WELCOME!

olhogrider is right. my dealership had the Tire pressures set to 34-34. first time i took the bike over 60mph almost tank slapped me to the ground. The C5 likes a ridiculously low amount of tire pressure on the Avon's, 18-24 front-rear is what im running now and you would not believe the difference it makes!  ;)
