The 20th is the last one I'll shoot for as the 7th has us @ Shawano for the last round....

Yeah just make sure you dont get a fuck #22 as its hard as fuck and was worthless last weekend - fuckin rear end swung out every corner, totally uncontrollable - i thought id be a hooked up with the brand new tire and it sucked. get a 14 or 29 and i think a 29 is good - i had a 14 for the last season and a half and it never slid probably 10+ hrs on it and it ran the whole 2 hr endurance race flawlessly! I wish we could find the med/soft dunlops though as those were some of the best also. But a soft and super soft front dunlop is the shit i had one on my marchi i got almost 2 season on it be fore i sold the wheel-tire!

I told you to stick with the 29 didn't I!?! The 14 will last a little longer since it is a little harder, but I have gotten good life (even when I rode more than once a year) and great feel out of the 29's.

I think Robert Loire still has a few left, and he is heading back up to Michigan for college next weekend, so if you guys want any, let me know and I can have him drop them off at work this week.

Roman / Tony,
Are either of you planning on hitting the Club 57 GP at Byron this coming Sunday? I'm still planning on hitting it, and my dad is even thinking about coming out and riding this time.

No SM for me this year. I'm hoping to get at least a couple more dirt rides after this weekend though, so let's see if we can make a weekend work sometime.

Anyone want to go to the RA trackday on the 26th if its nice out? Thinking of taking the Aprilia out there to shake it down and see how it does. I don't think I am going to be able to make the Deals Gap trip with SMJ on the 25th through the 30th because of work so this is my next best option.
