Cheers Mark

Hey buddy ....your up all night like me or are you in a sensible time zone...i just got HM tis 3am here
What Metzlers are you running ? and where is the cheapest place to buy them i CA you've found?
iF YOU CAN GET THAT MUCH OUT OF THEM I WILL RIDE THE DUNLOP TILL I LOOP BACK TO cALIFORNIA, CHANGE TO THE METZ THERE AND SHIP HER HOME WITH SOME NEW SHOES ON (Sorry for YELLING i knocked the cap lock...LOL )
Burn outs are probably one of the worst things for cars and bikes! It proves FA , stresses the drive train, over heats the engine, cooks and kills ya tyre, kills brakes ( in cars ) looks ok but boring after the first one....id rather ride twisties and be going slow in and FAST out!!!!:D...so yeah i wont be doing burnouts either!

Yeah I'm on a lot. Since I'm a moderator here I look for spammers and answer questions as fast as possible.

On the rear I am running the ME 880 Marathon XXL, 280/35 VR 18, Front is the ME 880 Marathon, 90/90 - 21.

I have found the best places are online for tire purchases. I'm at work now but when I get home I will post the web site of the best prices I've found.
