Actually..that's one thing I forgot to mention.  Low speed/standing
steering is -fantastic- now.  Must be the tire tread pattern, but who
would have thought that going to a tire that's a full inch wider
would be easier to turn?

Oh, and the added height offsets the lower effect the H&Rs/Bisteins
had, somewhat...I no longer scrape the exhaust on the bump between
the driveway+road :-)
