Versys Tire Pressure...what are you guys running?

Believe the manual says 36 rear and 32 front....

Just wondering what the "real world" riders recommend? :-)

Did I mention I absolutely love this bike? :-)

Cheers

Thanks guys...appreciate it...for now I will continue to run 36R and 32F...based on what most of you are doing! :-)

Just hit the 500 mile mark...going in for service tomorrow. Though I've been sneaking in quick bursts to 6K rpm, have been kinda trying to play by the book and stick to under 5K for sure. If I learn anything interesting, will post back. Cheers!
