Well I still think that it is going to suck. Good special effects and all that, but so unrealistic that anyone who knows even a little about motorcycles will be disgusted.

Hence the fact that KP thinks it's cool. He's proven he doesn't even know a little about motorcycles.

Good special efects? Did you see the backflipping bike in the ads? It is the poorest looking computer effect I may have ever seen. The only good cycle movies are by Bruce Brown. By the way look at On any Sunday 2. It is often overlooked. Not quite up to the standards of the original, but still better than any other cycle movies since.

Nobody has asked the most important questions yet:


1. What color will the smoke be when you do a burnout?



B.How do they work on an SV650, an old VFR, or a Concourse?



iii. Can we do mile-long wheeleez and block-long stoppeez with them?



These are the real issues with these re-treadz, no matter what anyone else has to say about them.



Just be a dork. Deep down inside everyone else is one too. Chango

Here's a real manufacturer making colored tires!
 
Michelin makes yellow Starcross off-road tirwes. I've only seen pictures, so I don't know how they work. I know they have been seen on Pastrana's bike.



That's OK. I know you guys don't give a Kr*p about off-road stuff.

What color will the smoke be? You guys are killing me.



That is an excellent app for a retread. Stunt riders blow and/or burnout tires all the time. So, if the re-treads are cheaper and come in colors that match what is left of the fairing, why not?



P.S. If I buy a Buell can I still be a Squid?

I have seen the ads for these tires, and I'm curious. Supposedly they are remanufactured on the same line as aircraft tires? I would very much like to see a test and review. If they are s**t then the world should know. Hint! Hint!

I'm with Grandmasta. I was into import tuning til I saw 2F2F. Now I want to punch people when they say ***** like 'I gotta have NOS man.' I mean you think squids are bad? Take your bike out on riceracer night....



Dear Mr. Limegreenhondacivic, How many times do I have to spank you at the light and then slow down just to give you the finger before you start doing the power to weight ratio math?



Same with Biker Boyzzz. I about fell asleep until the end where they race sport bikes on a dirt road. My girlfriend woke me up for that because she didnt think I would believe it if I didn't see it. I imagine Torgue will be even more 'realistic'.



Not that I am bitter.

I might just do that, thanks.

Is that because wearing all black makes you more visible on the road?
