Re: BT-16's or Q2's and why?

couple weeks later and i still haven't bought the tires. i hate having just enough money to cover my bills (motorcycle/truck payment, gas, food, insurance ect) and barely enough to save $100 a month. then again, it doesn't help when im buying new parts for my truck every other week, and i just bought a sweet leather red/white/black R6 jacket . was also waiting on this court case i thought i'd get $2000-2500 two weeks ago. that didn't happen, so i now i have to wait about 5-7 months to get another final court date, but if i win my potential winnings goes to over $4K . the bike would get a new custom tune, new brakes, and a paint fix for the 2 spots that have been scratched. maybe even some new rear sets.

Just got power pure 2ct's on the 05 r6 and the cornering is ridicules tip in is super fast but feels nice and stable they warm pretty quick and add confidence in the corners.

Re: BT-16's or Q2's and why?

Won my court case, rather i scared them into settling for $2500 out of court to help safe face . So i accepted and now i get to buy a few small things for the bike. just waiting for the check in the mail. Bought a new yamaha leather jacket, need a new helmet and gloves, then its time to shop for some pants.
