Thanks folks. Just what my 4 GL owning pal, who noticed the problem, said about piles and water traction. Have lesss than 100 miiles on the mismounted tire since put on, so I think there shoud be litttle damage putting it back on this coming Monday. First ride in almost half a century, last was Honda CL 350. Great little bike, but this one is a real road machine, and a joy to ride. Ride with lots of caution. They mean well, but often don't see us.
