Thumbs up Getting ready for a road trip! Yea BABY!

Tires just arrived in the big brown van! Woohoo! Avons. And they look sweet! I can't wait to compare them to the stock B'Stones. Liners came for the sadllebags...much needed. Getting the 6K done tomorrow, and the ver 7.0 update. Pack tomorrow night, and be in northern GA by early Sat. evening! Nothing more exciting than a road trip. Especially on a new GT with fresh rubber and fresh oil.

CCR! Here I come!

I am really looking forward to hearing your assessment of the V7 upgrade. Have a great trip you lucky shit. And as you, El Jeffe and others sit around with the Guiness think of us poor working sobs keeping the gears of the economy turning.

no doubt...

nothing more exciting!!

My next one is in October all the way to Vegas and then LA from New Orleans. I'll be riding on my free front Pirelli Corsa III.

Unless, of course, I give into my spirit of adventure and try to ride to Colorodo and see the mountains before the snow takes over. Hm....what would it take to get there.....

Ride smart,

Gravity

Service manager at my dealer is a good rider and one of the long time CLASS instructors for Pridmore. He refers to Bridgestones as "rim protectors".
