What's up Andrew!!
Yeah I'm down for sure! Now you got me addicted to Pescadero!
Even if I am not 100% again, I'll go just so you have a riding company!
I am trying to convince my friend to go as well. Hopefully he doesn't
get intimidated with the road up this side of the bay!!

And I'll try to be at the Cupertino meet up, on time!!

:cheers

maybe, if I don;t feel comfortable then I can let you lead or whoever shows up that knows the road better than I.

Well if you are going to push it, keep in mind your tires!

..............and those damn gravels are still in my head!! UGH! HA HA!
.....and not to mention a few wet spots on the turns!!

FUN and AWESOME THOUGH! :cheers

the sides of my tires should be ok, i never push it in the straights anyway. that's just getting asked to get pulled over.

the weather forecast said this whole week should be sunny, so all the wetspots should dry up by sunday. hopefully.

Just set the day to go (Sat. or Sun.) and also make it accommodating
for everyone's schedule so more can come.


I am pretty much down for either day, just need to
tell the GF which day so she can watch the li'l one.

:cheers

I have heard that Roadrider has the best deals around the bay area so they are going to be the first place I call. But whoever has a Pirelli Diablo Corsa in the size 180/55ZR17 in stock is going to get my money.
If I have a chance at work tomorrow I am going to call around to see who has the tire and at what price.

What tires are you riding on Deltaonex? I can ask for you at the sametime if you like. :poke

Well I have Pirelli Diablo Corsa tires on my bike. Front tire is a 120/70 series and the rear is a 180/55 series that I got for $270 online and Fremont Salvage put them on for $34. These tires are great for cornering but I will be lucking if I get 2000 - 3000 miles out of them (not counting any nails of course). Just so you know the stock front size tire on the R6 is a 120/60 series tire. If you just want a stock tire for the rear Roadrider has it for $130 and I know that Fremont Salvage has it also I just don't know the price.
There are millions of opinions on what tires are the best, just do a little research here to get a few.
When I get pricing I will let you know.

I am considering Sunday as well.
Not too mention that from all the sun that
we'll be getting these coming days, hoping the
roads will dry up until Sunday.

Hope you guys get your tires set up!!
