Tire Pressures - what is your preference?


I weigh 180 and bike weighs 500 half fueled.

I should have taken a picture of the front before i replaced it to show the uneven wear it had.

I am running 36/36 now for street/trips. There really is no longevity to be gained running 42/42 and that pressure was for the original bridgestone OE tire which no longer makes sense with current tire technology and construction.



I ride fairly hard and mileage is only a minor concern, I want the best grip/feedback/confidence from my tyres (yes tyres, I'm English - we don't have tires!). Firstly, 190/55 is IMHO the best size for a rear tyre and I run 36 front and 32 rear cold pressures.
