    hey chris, we had 2 mass buys on tires. unbeatable prices and it will be a long while before we see that happen again (after i use up the 12 tires i have in my garage or sell them at inflated price...:lol3 )

    contact trailttrick, he has a bunch still, he'll match or beat any best price you'll see.

    the previous owner (vrago) of my 640A did an excellent job tuning the fcr39, there's even a dyno sheet of this bike....from 33 ft-lbs to 40 ft-lbs at the wheel. unfortunately, i don't know how to use all that power on the dirt.....:cry

    angeles crest, afh, and big t....tend to wear out my tires at the right places...:thumb
