Go out n take a shot of your rear tyre at this angle.
Prove you actually ride your 6.
For those of you that don't know sissy rings are the unworn edge of your tyre. Unless you track ride it's unlikely you wont have any. The bigger they are though, well you get the picture.




I am in no way encouraging people to try and get rid of theres. Well not on the road. You have to get a long way over to lose them.

5mm is good. On the road unless you know the road well you want a bit of room to move. Hit a good bump or something slippery all the way over and you'll lowside.

This isn't the tyre wall that is wearing. It's just the outmost edge of your tyre.

If only my bike was in one operating piece. I am not one to not ride hard. I rode hard enough that I dumped it hard enough to have to tear it apart :(

treat it like you love it, ride it like you hate it!!!

It will be back in force next season. Bright ass orange too!

I just put a new diablo on my bike. plus my mate on a 95 zx-6r ( HANDLES LIKE A TUGBOAT) has none on his front but 1/2 inch on rear thinks hes leaning further than me even though i have to wait for him every couple of km's. So i'm on a good ride tomorrow with him and will be posting the results of the diablo.

OR THE CRASH. fuckin tugboat ridin bastard.

Having chicken strips is not necessarily a bad thing

Your friend might have to lean his tugboat over farther than you because you are a better rider than he is. The goal is to lean the bike over LESS in a corner, this way you can eliminate ground clearance issues and keep more stability.

Hangin your ass off the seat means you have to lean less to get the desired effect.

**center of gravity is changeed when you are hanging off**
