We could meet there sometimes, and discuss all these things over beer and ribs?

Sound good to you?, I know it sounds good to me!
Not knowing where the new place is I couldn't tell you, but Mt Vernon was just under 1000 miles from here.

I'm really happy with my Metzlers. Don't think I'll change brands.

I lowered my bike a couple years ago now, and never scraped the corners like I seem to have been doing over the past few months.

I took a great little ride yesterday (along Green Mtn. Rd. for those of you who have been here) and up some spiral twisties on Hwy 3 as well, and really noticed I seemed to be leaning further into the corner, and travelling at a greater speed around the corner than before.

So I checked my tires last night, and I have no chcicken strip on my rear whatsoever. The front does have a slight strip, but the rear, well...wow!.......I'm just stoked to be using 100% of the rear tire I purchased.

I have been making a consistant effort to practice my counter-steering in the corners as well. We (well, me) tend to get lazy sometimes and resort to just leaning, forgetting to really concentrate on counter-steering.

Of course, maybe it was the AC/DC thumping away in my headphones that made me do it.........
Put a car tire on that beast and you'll counter steer!
