Okay guys, I know John is out (hope he's back soon), but we must go on! He would have wanted it that way. We have to be brave and stick together. So where to and when, people?

Beau? JThomas? Sammy/Brad? Julie? Wayne? C'mon, let's keep this going.

Now all we need is a location and a time. Malibu and the Store of Rocks? Saturday at 8am at the Starbucks, Malibu Country Mart. How's that sound?

sounds great.. I'll be there... you gonna get new tires for that trip lawman???

btw... you want the vid camera this time around? - if you shoot it.. you can edit it... I'v finished the last ride's footage today.. as I'm typing.. it's rendering and I'll upload. You'll all have to download about 90 mb of vid to see it. sorry I don't have the personal site large enough to store and stream it :(

How do you mount that thing? Some kind of clamp on the gas cap? I'll take it and tape you, that's fine. As for tires, might be tough to get it to the shop with my work schedule this week. Maybe next week when I have a conference or something I can sneak a side trip to the shop.

jtomas
10-10-2005, 11:37 PM
it mounts using the 3 dummy bolts in the gas cap.

hey I don't mind - whatever you're comfortable with bud ;)

just stay off the center of your tire, right? not like you'll be riding there much anyways hehe.


/edit lawman.. you get that link working alright?

lawman800
10-11-2005, 12:20 AM
Yeah, I am emailing my bud right now to see if his shop got any more tires left over. He's clearing them out. I got my set of Dunlop 208GP-As for the track for $260 otd!

I'm hoping he still got some Pirellis left. Italian tires on an Italian bike, ya know. I think that combo adds 5 horsepower or something.

I like the Backass of the crest to Wrightwood idea. And.. I will be doing turtle pace. Perhaps allowing me to wear shorts, tshirt and sneakers on this ride.

lawman800
10-11-2005, 09:55 PM
Nah... go with the ballistic flannel shirt flapping in the wind and some baggy ass jeans with white socks and low cut vans....

I might go casual myself and wear my two piece Spidi instead.

isn't it still closed up to wrightwood?

I'll be there still no matter what we do - though I'll be short on sleep as I'll be working through the night friday night.

It's under Terra Power Sports or something like that. Do a google search, they are in La Puente, locally off the 60 fwy. Look under the specials section. They also have that race tire special where you buy the race rear and you get a front for $25 shipped to your door. I think the total would be cheaper for a set of race tires than street tires. Of course, I don't recommend race tires for the street but I am going to get a set for my track bike.

Beau1K
10-11-2005, 11:06 PM
http://www.terra-powersports.com/specials.aspx/sid/1

So is it just the rear that is a special price and the front is regular?

lawman800
10-11-2005, 11:09 PM
No... the M1 Sportec street tires are on special as are the Racetechs. They have the links separately for the front and rear, so you have to add them separately to your cart, I know... it's a pain in the ass.

Sorry, cut and pasted a link from the Oct. 8 ride. The starbucks is at the northeast corner of Fair Oaks and California Avenue, 800 block. Just go up Fair Oaks and it's on the right side after you pass California, behind the Boston Market.

lawman800

I just got home, 4:30 A.M. Working on" E-Ring, Wednesday,s at 8:00 On NBC "
Saturday is OUT, At least the morning !
NOW SUNDAY! ! ! ... .. . Any one Interested ?
Like to Start Early.

Joel's Riding Tip's #1,

If the rider In your rear view mirror is right on your A-S for the last 7 min,

YOU SHOULD ? ? ?

1. Ignor Them

2. Make your Bike as WIDE as possible

3. Deny it Happned

4. Ask the rider about the Modifications To His Bike

5. At your Destination, Sit down and Have Another Breakfast

6. ALL OF THE ABOVE !


THIS IS ALL IN FUN ! Really joel.

I just got back from riding. I woke up late and raced up to the gas station by 9am and thought I could catch some of y'all. Then I just went up and down by my lonesome. What a nice ride though. No cars and zero cops. Weather was perfect at about 72F the whole ride, no fluctuations.

We need a phone list and a roll call for the rides. Sorry about your wife, J.

You guys are on CRACK!

Never should you let TV get in the way of doing something you want to do.

Not that TV is bad...I'm not saying that at all...there are some shows I can't miss.

The thing is...they invented this thing called TIVO

www.tivo.com

It's only $49...never miss a show, watch another commercial or miss an event because of TV scheduling.

If you don't like tivo....get a DVD based or hard drive based DVR

The 450 is a non street legal supermoto. Basically a motocross bike with slicks or street tires.

In a nutshell. In the hands of the right rider, and especially on technical tracks, a supermoto will GOBBLE SS bikes in the corners. You wont find many rotch crockets that can corner like it.

Up at Angeles, the 'tards fly past street bikes regularly, plant one boot on the asphalt, and fly around the corner. My friend has a KTM and he is unstoppable up there.

Wayne, does Grange allow roadracing bikes? I want to wring out the gix1k!

Wayne, does Grange allow roadracing bikes? I want to wring out the gix1k!

I dont think so. The track is really tight, and prolly not good for any bike above 600cc. Its mainly for karts, 'tards, and 2 stroke sporties.
