I found a tire gold mine online recently, Michelin Pilot Power 2CT rears for only $150

B-King is very happy with that

(http://www.rubyridgemx.com/index.html) Just wanted to see if anyone else on the board might like to come out and play on a track or just laugh at those of us old farts that do.
This sounds Cool! Anyone going to check'em out?

It might be fun to ride out there after church for a bit, if the weather is nice just to laugh and take pictures...

I have a 450 I can rent to anyone interested, only $2900 and you can have it all weekend.

Guaranteed to thrill you on the track

I would show up on it but I am just not into that stuff anymore since it can be hazardous to ones health. My track season is right around the corner and I don't need to be dinged up before the start.

Wow! $29.00 would almost be worth it... but I'd hurt myself on that crazy 450 of yours...

$2900 is cheap for this type bike in excellent condition. I wish a deal like this existed back when I was shopping. Flip side is $2900 is about what the ER bill would equal after one ride

It's gonna be a nasty day tomorrow. Hope you got a nice warm dry spot to do it in. Use painters tape to mask the frame off where the engine may bump into it. Juss be careful taking it off. Holler at me , I may be available to help you put it together.

Me and Jason mentioned burning some rubber, but I just checked the forecast and it looks like a wet one. I could easily lend a hand...

Yep. My garage with a heater if needed. I was thinking about green tape. The frame has cured for long enough that the tape should not be an issue. This project is a labor of love. The first street bike I ever wrecked was a fully dressed CB350. DesotoRoto found this one for me. Complete, decent shape, and CHEAP. Can not wait to get it back together. Old bikes always bring a smile to my face. I am always looking for a good CL or SL in need of a resto. I could get rid of the BMW if I had an SL or CL, the CB 350 and a CB750. Cheap, good, fun bikes.

BW and Peaches,
Thanks a bunch.

I have some work to do in the morning. If I get thru early I'll give you a call Peaches. If it's gonna be late, I'll give you both a call and buy you some dinner for the help.
