Dude, you're preaching to the choir... I've argued that point a million times. But when I have a former AMA racer tell me I need to upgrade, I'm gonna trust his input.

By my ghetto lap timer... (stop watch on handlebar) :icon_bigg I did a 2:02 on street tires. The Ohlin's rear helped me drop about 2 seconds compared to my stock rear shock.

So, if/when I upgrade to the BT002s I'll make sure to let you know what times I'm doing.

I've never ran MSR Houston... but I know James did a 1:49 and we run similar pace at TWS (Texas World Speedway). I'd like to get down there for a trackday later this year.
