Hey - Why don't you just ask me? Trying to get your count up? I might have an idea tho Cap is alot smarter than me!
Always had my tires done at Dimick's Tri-City Motorsports (NOT to be confused with Tri-City Cycle). I've known Mark for years and years. He's not the cheapest, but he is accomidating and will do a good job. They are behind the BMW/Ducati dealer on the West side of I-25. Tell him he still needs to dyno my 'Strom (um... next time I'm in town...).
Is there a dyno in Fort Collins?
Cause you ain't the cheap bastard that I am. And you never keep a bike long enough to wear out the tires...
Thanks for the help! Hope to meet you guys sometime.
Tri City Motorsports used to have a dyno. At least they did about 5 years ago. I had them work on my Ducati 900SS and it went on the dyno as we were jetting and putting Staintunes on it.
Can't recall the wrenches name but he was damn good.
Yup, Mark has one. He owns the shop behind the BMW/Ducati dealer.
That was probably Barry. He was the head wrench for Mark. You are right, he is damn good! I had him do quite a bit of my stuff. I think he is still in Ft. Collins area. He may still be wrenching for BMW, or I know he was doing some on his own. Go talk to Mark and he can probably get you in touch with him.
Oh boy. 2 Stroms and a ricer RSX. I can have fun this winter. Who needs a trailbike?
Just FYI its not hard to fit tires yourself. I do mine on the dirt bikes and the TLS just using 3 dirt bike style motion pro tire levers. Amazingly the ZR rated street tires are no worse than a regular dirt knobby.
Barry Messenger would have been the wrench and has been with N. CO. BMW for a couple of years now. Very good wrench. And a hell of a rider!
Yup, he's a great guy and a true journeyman!
Yup, it was Barry. He came highly recommended from a friend who has been using him for years on his 900SS as well.
