What I was sending your attention to is the statement that you think that these are some entry level, not good enough product and spending more money on another brand is somehow going to do something for you.

I'm all for you getting tire warmers, you'll need them eventually if you keep doing track days and get in to racing. But tire warmers are a "nicety" not a "necessity" for track days and racing. Like Long was saying, he doesn't use them at all, and plenty of racers, that have been racing for a long time use the Tyr Sox.

Don't pout or play the martyr for me throwing out something like that.
I was'nt joking. I was serious.

I'm just a little right now, i little upset right now, a little annoyed right now, i don't like waking up in the morning only to find my bike not being where its suppose to be. So give me a break right now and look for some hole riding my gsxr and shoot him for me, will ya?

thanks.

Your plastics got stolen off the bike... and then they came back and took the bike later on...

Sorry to hear that mang...

Why didn't you take the bike someplace else after the plastics were stolen?

arturo, i don't know you either. But i think you may be right. Its a series of bad luck, but it still makes me smile everytime. I'm not sure i wanna quit just yet. I'd like to go deeper - and it comes at a cost, that's why i guess you gotta CYA (cover your ). Let's hope for the best, no matter what the signs.

Looking forward to meeting you some day.

Could they have spoken up before the 57-hour journey to get the darn thing?
