It's always hot where I live. And I believe with warm and hot roads, tires gain pressure.
Seems half the time I have a passenger.

What psi do you keep the front and rear at ?

Some things to consider:
always hot
hot roads
passenger weight
sand and gravel....close to beach- lots of sand cornering

From Metzler for the ME880 260/40/18 and 280/35/18 rears. It was published years ago on their website:

Front: Solo 38-40, 2-up Light 40-42, 2-up Heavy 40-42
Rear: Solo 44-46, 2-up Light 46-48, 2-up Heavy 48-50

Running Michelins
rear = 240/40 18
front = 120/70/zr19
I run 40F/46R and have never had an issue. I think H-D recommends 35F/41R in the book (going from memory).

Personally, I can't really tell much difference between 5psi-- I guess my butt-dyno is poorly calibrated.
