Default Not the C-word

Not at all, JB. Just discipline. What you try to instill in your kids. When/where to speak, and when to hold your tongue.



While you're taking a break from the advertising biz, please tell us you have nothing to do with the latest from the Golden Arches. I swear, I'd rather watch a feminine product ad!

I believe these will fit the Honda Hawk GT for all you club racers out there.

Default Most Hawk Racers...

Run a wider front rim, so the 110 font is too small.



No wonder why they are blowing them out.

Default Re: Pirelli and Metzeler announce tire sale

Hmmm, maybe a good set of late model supersport rubber is what I need to finally graduate from the WMRRA novice class. Third year is a charm, right?



The question is, do I dare squeeze a 150/60-17 onto the my race Hurricane's 3.5" rear? The bike came stock with a 130/80. I run a 140/80 Bridgestone BT-090 on it now with no problems. I have a 150/70 Michelin Macadam on my street Hurricane, and that's worked well.

dude pirelli is overhyped in america. when i go to the track i see all these guys telling me that my michelins are garbage and to get some pirellis. BUT when you look at the best race teams in the world, look at what the endurance guys use, you notice that no one uses pirelli tires. You know why? Cause the real dogs know that michelin is supirior.

Sure. The GS500e runs a 3.5 rear too and just to get decent rubber a lot of us run the 150/60 combination. Though frankly I *LIKE* my BT-090's. Then again I get a set of BT's for $258 + shipping. So this deal isn't that smoking...



This year I couldn't race at all. Maybe next year I'll get a chance to change that.
