Default Tire Pressure

I know this has been discussed before...since then there's been more Tri-Glide owners here thought we should do a repeat.

I have 36# (front) and 26# (rear)....what tire pressure is everyone else using? Do you increase the tire pressure for long trips or run the same poundage year-round?

Thanks in advance

36 Front, 28 Rear and mine are also Nitrogen filled. FWIW, my tire dealer here is a 20 year friend and expert in his field. His explanation for the 2 extra lbs in the rear was that the tires would last longer with the extra weight two up most of the time.

Default tires

26 front, 24 rear, to me 24 is a little more comfortable. On a trip we keep the shock close to 50#, around 30# when were not loaded up
