THANK YOU Gold Wing Docs

I want to thank Goldwing Docs for May winner.
The counteract balancing beads were received in the mail. I have used dyna beads in my last 3 set of tires. The front tire I had 23,702miles with no cupping. Still had some thread but a piece of metal coil was embedded in the tire so the tire came off.
I have the rear tire mounted on an extra rim and ready to take the old wheel off to replace.

The beads came in handy as I had not bought any to put in the tires.

Again THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Greatly appreciated.

Virgil, I have gotten 22 k out of 2 sets of E3s on my 1500. Last set however came off early because of cupping and their musical tone. Now running Avon Venoms and at 11k miles I expect near that same mileage.
