Don't be a cheap , buy some CF BST's
Only kidding, you can save some coin and get some forged CZ's (carrozzeria)
I want a set for my next bike down the road.
And it's input, not imput

Oh , the 50" LED tv bro. That bike's pretty and rides fine, the rims will mostly be for others to look at while you ride. The tv will be for YOU to look at all the time.

And no, you haven't been watching Blu-rays if you dont have HDMI! LOL... Blast that PS3 to it's full potential.

Yeah, no . Rims are something you buy if you can write a check for them and not even think about it.

The TV is something you can really enjoy, rims aint gonna make you faster.

I agree. The rims will make the bike handle better but there are other things to consider.
There are suspension changes needed to get the full potential, they are more easily damaged and unless you are pretty dang awesome the bike already handles better than you (or me or most any of us) can ride it.
Get the TV you will be able to use it more. Oh, and don't ask the internet to make decisions for you, we out here in webland will mislead you if we can get away with it.

lojack first, then rims. (shows your 06 was stolen.....)
Easy targets are just that. Dont give them another excuse.

If its not broke, dont try to fix it.



I'd just save the money personally or find another venue. Gear?

And for 's sake, do NOT use a condom. You could slam a car door on your and not feel with one of those on.

When you leave for work in the morning, let her stay behind and clean up. Your 50" LED will still be there when you get home.

rims won't make you faster. the majority of people on here could never tell the difference between CZ's and stock rims. TV = win

daveC is a noob.

Check out Fry's dude. Lotsa BD for $20-30. I just picked up the 3-disk Star Trek 2009 BD for $19.99 last week. If you're still paying $50, then you need to shop around a bit. , even CL has some almost new Blu-rays here and there.
