Tire warmers......good ones!!

My pimp for parts, Joe Browning at Sum of All Parts in Austin has a smokin' deal on some really great warmers. I've seen a set and will have a set of these myself soon. Check 'em out and call Joe to get yours before the next trackday. You'll see dramatic increase in tire life, not to mention the feel of starting on warm tires. You can't buy a good set of tires for this price, and your race rubber will last twice as long with fewer heat cycles. Tell him Buck sent you, 'cause I'm a good 'ho.......................

I wonder the same thing. All except my once in a while has gone up to about twice a month it seems lately. Very very addicting right up there with crack cocaine. But I will wuss out and just wakeboard during the summer couldn't handle riding with all that gear on in the heat. I am just too old for that.

I'm getting my set delivered tomorrow so I'll have two sets around if you're serious you can try 'em out on your race rubber and see what you think. Worth it for the occational? YES!!! These cost less than a set of race tires. I can make a hard rear Michelin go over 450 Hard laps and the front a whole lot more, due to keeping the heat cycles to a minimum. YES the are worth it and they have great resale value if you take care of them and find you didn't want them. If a few of you get together, I'm sure Joe and Daniel would give ya'll a deal. I've got thier number if you'd rather call'em directly.

For the occasional rider I'm not too sure they are worth it... I've been running BT014s at trackdays for the past 2 years now and never needed tire warmers except on the absolute coldest of days. I do 1 trackday a month and I do a pretty decent pace and I get 3 or 4 trackdays out of the rear and 4 or 5 out of the front plus I do a little street riding inbetween. Granted, I've worked really hard on smoothness and throttle control so if you're hamfisted then you won't get as good wear out of street tires as I do...

...the downside though. I was told yesterday I need to upgrade to DOT race tires. That sucks... guess I have to go full track with the F4i now. :icon_bigg

Actually yes... and exiting the kink as well. The new Ohlin's shock is a huge improvement that gives loads more feel. :icon_bigg

But... in likelihood I'd be fine on street tires. It was just cool hearing from a very experienced rider that I should 'upgrade' my tires. Made me feel like I'm finally improving to where I want to be.

i guess u guyz heard about Colin's street tires test. point being, riding skills NEED to be improved, not tires. and that wld apply to almost everybody on this forum!!!

on a similar note, i was cornerworking on turn 1 at TWS (Texas World Speedway) today. seeing experts come in, especially Ty, was a humbling experience like none else. there is SO much more potential in bikes..only if riders cld be good enough!

I moved to DOT race at the Ride Smart event on 4/15/06. Dude what a difference not only can you corner faster you do so more safely. I look at them like an insurance policy. Sure they cost around $350 but if they keep you from sliding or dumping the front end they are worth every penny see what I am saying. I mean it is going to cost a heck of alot more than $350 if you drop your bike.

Buck, I think I will take you up on that on the mini track day.
