New larger tires

I just put on the new 110 front and 180 rear and I love em! I do think I can feel a slight weight difference on the engine but it could be all in my mind. Getting the old tires off was hell and getting the new ones one was more of the same. Took 4 hours for the front last weekend and 4 hours for the rear yesterday.

I figured out a trick yesterday though. when putting the tires on, use the zip tie method you see on youtube but put the first part of the tire on, then use those tie down straps to secure it. Then move around the rim and secure the tire on the rim with the tie downs before moving on.
