Well smartass, the 3 year old BT-015 was at 34psi hot. CraigRR witnessed me checking the pressure that day.

FYI, Iíve purchased 3 new CBRs in the last 4 years and tire pressure on or off the track has never been an issue for me.
sooooooooo next time youre at the track, are you going to let this noob pass you or what?

I'd rather you stay in front. Not into surprise read ends in the pit. On the street I'll give you a signal when I see other vehicles so you won't be caught by surprise

Bevo checked his pressures two different times during that ride. I also saw him loose his front for a second on a previous ride. Something was wrong with his tire IMO. Accidents can happen to anyone anywhere.

Lol get a bike that you can ride at the track and then talk... easy to talk about it but when are you actually going to come out and ride?

should be easy to pass a guy up whos on only his 9th month of riding.

Yea, especially if you're crashing into riders on the track and getting spooked by vehicles on the street

Thanks for the advice Mark. I notice the heat tends to lower my tire pressure a few psi in between rides. The real reason I rode to Orsaks by myself yesterday was because I would rather not ride with cocky little dipshits that think they know everything.
