    If they're takeoffs they won't be slippery. Don't hammer until a couple miles in and make sure you have the right pressure for the type of tire. ie my bridestones are recommended at 29-28 for racing, I'll run them 29-28 up to 32-32 depending on the type of riding. All carcasses are different though and it' makes a huge difference.

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    On the yzf600 I recomend running 32/32 if you want to run hard then drop it to 30/30

    Pressures depend on the stiffness of the carcass and the compound of the rubber. There is a certain tire out that runs at 22lbs, the bike size and weight will have something to do with it but not very much in street riding, skill and riding style would be more pertanent factors. after tire type.

    Don't make me get into specifics on the mounting....how tight it is, proper lubrication, breaking it in......

    I think it might be a serious issue... I hear it's called nymphomania in women, satyriasis in men....

    17 is worth skipping southern VT for. If you want to start from Rt. 9 in Wilmington, and ride 100 north from there, we'd be lucky to get to 17 by 5pm.

    I can't join you but I can answer your question. Yes, Rt. 17 is that good. Once you've ridden it, you won't forget it's number.

    keep me updated on a leaving time for you guys. I talked to Keira earlier and one of you bastards has to give me a shout when you're about an hour or so away, actually 1.5+ should be god cause I am gonna get Chris (highsider) to come along too. Jeff and Keira have my number so give me a shout tomorrow but let me know tonight about a leave time.

    I sold my 600 to a guy in Medford, MA in the spring. Maybe you've seen it around?





    I'm lovin' the new gixxer although I miss the sound of the Yoshi pipe on my 600. I've only been able to rack up 3500 miles so far do to work travel and rain. Hopefully those miles will triple in the next few months.

    Do you and your wife talk?

    I spoke with her earlier and she filled me in. Just to make sure more people have info, if someone could give me a shout when you're between 1.5 - 2 hours away that'd be good. If it was just me I'd need like a half hour or so but I am gonna meet up with Chris (highsider) and see about him comin too. He pretty much lives 10 minutes from 17 but he's a bit....well....slow to get out the door . I don't know how long I'll be able to roll with you guys but it'll be nice to meet up and ip 17 a couple of times. You guys doin lunch at 17/100 or earlier?

    MikeB,

    I'll ride back towards Peterborough with you when you split since you want to get back there around 5pm. It works for me too since I can get back to the coast at a decent hour.

    See you guys at Bestbuy in the AM.

    Bob

    I'll see ya'll in Keene in the AM!

    I had to take care of some maint. stuff on the bike today, I will lube up the chain and check the tire pressure then off for a cool ass ride! I have been waiting to get out on a nice VT ride this whole season! I'm stoked!

    Anyone heading up around my area I will be leaving Framingham @ 8:15 then I have to stop at my shop for a second to grab my Camera battery. I left it charging under my desk.
    So leaving Westboro (RT9 Burger King) @ 8:30. If you want to ride up with me PM me and plan to meet at BK @ 8:30 or in Framingham at Stop and Shop at the intersection of Temple St and Worcester rd (Rt9) @ 8:15.

    Mike
