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..:D 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..:rolleyes: 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...:D

You know they are going to charge lots more to mount them compared to if ya bought them from the shop..anyway, I go to Hammyboys in Santa Monica..only guys I trust with my bike..I think they charge $60.00 to mount tires ??? might try M/C Tire Works in Lomita 1-310-539-4151, or hermosa Motorsport in Hermosa Bch.1-310-318-5551.....

Holy Shit,

Greg - are you OK?

Was this after I left the Rock Store when riding with you and Eric?

When will you be back in action? I was wondering if you were up for riding mid week between Christmas and New Year. Let me know.

take it easy,

Peter
