Check your tire pressure lately?

With the change in weather, it's really important to check your tire pressure often as the cooler temperatures result in lower tire pressures.

Here in Northern California, it's still going to warm to 83º (27C) this afternoon, but in the morning it's closer to 50º (10C). I run stock 32/36 air pressures, but when I checked this morning they were at 28/30!

Ever since I picked up my '08 (Sept '08), after it being recommended by the dealership's mechanic, I've run 36F, 42R on ALL my cycles, ALL types of tires (inc. knobbies!), and I do NOT "air-down", as that puts the rims at risk.

Thus far that's worked PDG for me - I get GOOD mileage, and the handling seems pretty good.
