new member intro and pertinent specifications thereof
Hi, all. New guy in Portland, OR, here. Nice to meet you!! Here are some specs:
I ride a 2000 cbr929 (yellow/black). For those who care, the to-date mods are Circuit One (the local analog to Race Tech) suspension, Hindle exh system, pcII, double bubble windscreen.
I also ride an '86 Honda Shadow and have a 1965 Greeves Challenger. A dirt bike riding friend tells me I can't ride it because it doesn't have shocks with 12" of travel. It would beat me to death. I don't recall it doing so in my younger days (his point: YOUNGER DAYS :-)
Current mo'sickle dilemmas: (1) What kind of tires to replace the Michelin Pilot Sports with, i.e., are there beter road tires out there? I'm thinking Avon or Metzeler. (2) Where to mount the Valentine One and which wire to cut into to power it. (Yes, I know....the red one ;-). INPUT on the dilemmas sought and APPRECIATED.
