Motorcycle Trouble

It was last Thursday (June 11, 2020) I have new tires put on my 2006 Yamaha XT225.  When I rode it home they seemed very loud.  Was thinking it was just because of the new trends.  Well I took it work today (June 16) since it was nice weather.  A bit cool in the morning.  On they way home I ran into trouble.  Going at slow speeds the bike was fine.  However once I hit the highway it couldn’t get up to speed and got louder.  There is a bit hill to just be for my house.  The bike stared to bog down.  Had to pull over a few times to let people by.  Then I noticed the engine was getting super hot.  When I put into my driveway got off.  Check the back tire and see that it is rubbing on the sides and the suspension.  Know wonder I had trouble getting up to seed the engine was over heating.  Just hope I didn’t mess it up.  Need to give the shop a call.  They better fix it for free since it was their mistake.  But my guess they will make be up a new tire and have it installed.
