It's all cool.
My ducks are all in a row, or should I say arrows. Like I said this was my mistake, and not the shop. I made an assumption on tire direction and that was the problem. I used to be sponsored by this shop when I raced off road, they are all new people now, but they always treat me right. It's a Yamaha shop and he was telling me all about the new 1200 Super Tenere. He said he has two sold on order and has a dealer show tomorrow where he will actually get to see it. He even invited me to come along so I could check it out. I smiled and said I'm pretty happy with my Versys, but you know how people are, always needing soming different... It would be a hard sell to beat the Versys for sure, it just has too many things going for it. Heck for me even the BMW F800 didn't win my heart over the V.
I pretty much do everything myself and have changed hundreds of off road tires, but for $20 to mount and balance it seems hardly worth my trouble to scratch up my rim and try and balance. (without buying something) The cool thing about the road tires is they only need changing about every 9-10K miles. On my dirt bikes when I was racing they would get a rear directional swap after 1st race and replaced after the second race. I used to sell the "two race" tires to the local kids for coal strippin'. Even my dual sports would eat tires in 2k miles. So 9-10K on the V is pretty sweet.
Sorry for the bogus post. Didn't mean to start anything.
But atleast a few will now know there are arrows on the rim as well. The picture above shows the arrow on the rim, there is also one on one of the spokes as well.
