Re: $Lindz$ builds some shit for the track

Haha. Nahhhhhhhh. I meant to have 2 more track updates for you guys to laugh about but I got super busy with work and I couldn't fit anything into my schedule. F***! Right now I think Dec 3rd is going to be my next track day. (It seems so far away!).

Sorry dudes.

I know the reason and use for warmers, but I'm sorry girl-and-boyfriend/husband-crew in that awesome Toy Hauler with your generator, shade tent, folding chairs, hats and brand new shiny tire warmers and slicks on your race-replica bikes... I passed you a million times and I assure you your pace is being HURT by running those tires. You aren't getting them warm. You aren't using them. They probably feel mega sketchy. I know it's fun to play the part but I mean... c'mon! Also, do the new rider school, those control riders are clearly good enough to give anyone at the track pointers. And what's with all the mean scowling looks when I ride/walk past? For f**ks sake, it's not like I was the only person passing you guys. Your fancy-ass get-up sure makes you look pretty but it's not doing anything to help your riding... at least not from what I can see.

But I digress, I don't know everyone's story (and they probably don't know mine). That could have been their first time back on the track after a bad wreck and they are normally in AMA (they certainly tried to look the part). Who knows. Could have been any thousands of stories. All I know is it didn't look like they were having much fun. Meanwhile... well, I don't need to tell you guys twice: that was an epic day. Ohlins, I love you.
Ahh you know that slicks offer the same traction as your DOT's right? Slicks are only better because they offer better wear. By the time you get leaned over the sipes have stopped and the part of the tire you are using is just like a slick. You are right about the warmers though. Warmers at a track day are more trouble than they are worth, no matter the ambient temperature. Racing on the other hand...

Nice bike and build. You might want to look into getting 08+ forks as they are longer. Getting the longer forks made my bike handle much better as it made it much more stable and allowed it to hold a line better mid corner.

Re: $Lindz$ builds some shit for the track

csmutty... Word dude, but aren't the compounds of, say, N-TECS different than my GP-As? That's what I was getting at. Cuz I've always heard most slicks will fall off harder and faster if they aren't kept up to temp. Regardless, these people weren't going fast enough to keep heat in a Q2, let alone a slick.

Anyways, yeah the NIX30s are for 08+ forks but there is enough overlap in 06-07 forks tubes to expand and hold the 08+ carts. So, in essence I have forks that are the same length as 08+, using 08+ carts and everything, just my 07 tubes.


Mladinracer, Krutoydiesel, thanks dudes. I'll come back in and do my best to keep you reading when I get some worthwhile updates. haha.
