Default To scrub-in your tires....

Just take it easy on your out-lap. After that, cautiously increase the pace for two more laps, until you are at 99.9999% of maximum lean angle/torque transfer/grip etc...



Oh you meant for a STREET bike? For street bikes and modern tires, ride conservatively for the first 10 minutes, gradually increasing your lean angle. Diablos are so good, that you shouldn't have any trouble with them, as long as you don't ride like an idiot for the first few miles. -Sean

Default Re: Squdly Nitwit?

...or ride like a Squidly Nitwit.



Sean, I wasn't the squidly nitwit on that 1000cc compro, was I?



I mean, shucks, I only got to ride tht ZX10R for about 10 minutes. And who wouldn't look like a squid on that tank I was riding?



I though "wow, this bike has got one of those slipper clutches"...but it was slipping the wrong way, like when I opened the throttle.



Jeez. And when I put that Bandit in the back of my truck, it was like a scoop of c-ment. Squished the springs down, real good.



Hope your hands better.

Sorry about that.



After applying the Armor All, I've found that used motor oil is really effective at preventing dry rot in the tread.

Sounds like a buddy of mine armor all'n the hell out of the bench seat in his 72 chevy. First hard left he ended up in the passanger seat, and somebodys front lawn.
