Tires for the track...

I need to get some new tires and I was just wondering what brand/model tires come recommended and where to buy them? I will be heading to the track in July.

Jeff, I recommend the Diablo Corsas. They are great tires for the track, and wear well for the street. You won't get as many street miles out of them as you would a Bridgestone B-012, but you'll get more than most track tires.

Plus on the track they are very sticky. I've had mine on since Putnam of last year and I haven't had any problems.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

You can try getting them from www.discountmotorcycletires.com. They will run about $300 a set with a 180 rear. Or, if you're a NESBA member you can try getting a set from them. I think their price is much lower, like $270 for a set with a 180 rear.

Of course I'm ready for next Friday's Poseur Ride. Its only Sunday and I can't wait for it.

Its best if you take the wheels off your bike and bring them and the new tires to a dealership. If you take the whole bike its pretty expensive.

Have 4&6 do it for you, they have great pricing, the best I've seen. You don't have stands, so you'll have to take the whole bike. 4&6, bro.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."
