Yeah, I called the tire dealer that Ridesmart had on their site - Island Racing, and they have good prices on the pilot powers. *Probably just buy a set at the event since their prices include mount & balance. *Just hate to see all that unused shoulder tread on my bt014's go to waste. *Maybe I'll just replace the rear with a fresh one. *:dontknow:

Many guys ride w/BT014s at the track. If you have a good BT014 then I don't see why you can't ride with it right: . Trust me on your first time there will be no lap records broken.

Yeah, prolly just replace the rear since the front is still good.* These things make awesome street tires anyways.

Ohh, and Speedismo, just let me know if you need help getting your bike up there. I've never tried it, but I'm sure I can fit both bikes in the back of my tundra.

Re: I know it's a little early, but 09/05/05

Hey Syd, you can add me to the list, Ro. I met you at the picture day thingy. You knew my younger sister, Rochelle, I think. Anyways, I just signed up as a beginner. This will be my first track day. Looking forward to meeting and riding with some of you.

I think I now have to rent some gear.

Also, if any of you don't mind and have extra space to tow my bike, please let me know. I don;t have a way yet of getting it to CStation without having to ride there (which I do not want to do).
