I feel compeled to offer this info. due to a STUPID mistake on my part, yesterday..while riding some twisties with a few of the SBW members at our local FUN place.. I wound up lowsiding, for the second time in 1 week..I know what your thinkin..what's wrong with this dude, first lowside was due to a dirt patch, not my fault...But the one on Sunday was my fault..for not, keeping my head on straight...i.e. warming up my tires before doing any spirited riding.. So...I wound up sliding on my back side.. My bike looks like crap..have to have the carbs resynced..again...:$$$$$mad: so HEAT them tires up, rememeber the roads are much cooler, tires are too, takes way longer to get them to temp....lets be careful out there...
