    i rode in today. but i still dont trust my rear tire for anything fun.
    it keeps slipping. i think the priller may get parked for a while til i can get to the track with the wheels to get som race take offs mounted.

    So who's riding to work?

    No riding for me till next week when I get my fork fixed. (I'm getting fork guards too so hopefully it won't happen again.)

    Went to ride my bicycle to work this morning and it was all f*cked up from getting that glue-sand on it and I hadn't cleaned it up cause I was sick all last week. It ended up taking me an hour and a half to get it all up to speed again. The rear hub was almost frozen up and both brakes were pretty jammed up and needed a lot of work. Probably tomorrow I will be back to riding that to work most of the time. It's only 3 miles so I probably won't be riding my SV to work that often.

    Actually I was a complete dumb ass yesterday riding it to work even though I knew the fork was leaking. I got on Rt. 2 and nailed it up to 100mph a couple times and got some pretty good lean angles going on the onramps on 128, 2, etc.. even though the fork was eventually leaking enough that I think it got on the brake discs and caused a teeny bit of squeaking.

    Heres a condom. I figured since youre acting like a dick, you should dress like one too.

    I rode in two days last week and today. Couldn't ride in yesterday due to the ice on the steepest part of my driveway. Roads are getting better but plenty of sand here and there.

    it wasn't much warmer than high 30's on my way into work today, everyone thought I was nuts for freezing my ass off on the ride in, but the payoff was worth it this afternoon. I'm up to 300 miles now. I can bring her up to 6000 rpm now, woo hoo!
