i found that when e3's are new is the time to always make sure that the tires are at 38/41, less noise now and less noise laterFront and rear delivered to your door for $289 is great. I'll turn my riding bud on to that. He is pleased with the mileage that he has " squeezed " out of his E3s . Mike has no interest in going " Darkside " (yet ), so he is tolerant of the noisy ride.
It's a different beast. 1800's are tough on tires, especially rear tires. Why? Ask an engineer. There is a difference between " road worthy wear " and " audible annoying wear ". The audible annoying wear, to me, comes way before the road worthy wear. Some can ignore it, I can't and its not for a lack of trying.The e3's on my 1200 hardly make a noise and the e3's on my 1500 just barely make more noise that the ones on the 1200 ,but as you know I cannot speak on e3's fitted to 1800 wing
