I'll bet someone is concerned about a liability issue.....

Now with that being said, nothing would preclude us from meeting each week on Thursday nights.

well i talked to some harley riders that i know from my milk route that are going to be going to the blessing of the bikes on april the 26th. i asked if we could tag along with them just for shits and grins. they said yes the more the better so this is the 411. we will be meeting at hardees on williams street at 7:00am for breakfast and head out from there after every one who said they will ride gets there. about 7:30 is my guess. head over to the cross and hang out for about 1 or 2 hours just looking at all the bikes and hanging out. leave from there and head over to giant city park for a early lunch. fried chicken, dumplins, corn, green beans, biscuts, and it's all you can eat for about 11 bucks plus your drink. and it's good i can tell you this from the past visits i have made. from there is up to you , but i will be hitting some roads through the park and just take my time getting back home. any one is invited to come along for a day of just taken it easy and enjoy the great out doors.

what conti tire did you have iroc the conti road attack, the sport. hell when i got rid of my zzr600 it had around 5000 to 6000 on the conti road attack front tire and it still looked really good. makes me think that something was wrong. i would contackt conti and see what they say.

hey iroc i just did some reading. i don't think the force is the right conti tire for your bike. who talked you into the force? cause they were wrong. you should have went with a road attack conti. it's steel belted and alot better of a tire for a little more money. i know i'm going back to them after my stock pilots go bald. i loved those tires. i'm sorry about the force not lasting, but it's the low end conti. i still don't get why you only got 3000 miles out of a front tire.

drur, I was thinking the same thing.

iroc, just give me a holla..

Dr. I should have checked the board before I left. I just got back from a quick shake down trip to Marble Hill and back. It was my first ride since I put the bike back together. Forks feel a bit different, but I think they'll do just fine. I changed the fork oil and went with a bit heavier wieght.

undertow, not the Attacks but the Conti-Force.

well after i burn my roads off my bike either i'm going to go with avons front and rear or the b-21"s but i'm not impressed with the tires on this bike at all. they are doing the same think my b-20"s were doing in a tite corner they slip big time if you give it any gas at all. i under stand that this bike has a lot more tork than the other but man it spins the tire like nothing so i would like to try a better quality tire next go around. i will more than likely go with the avons if money is good. i would love to get 6 to 8k out of a set of rubber before they are wore out.
