Wonder how different they would be on a full size GMC. It has 265/75R16's on it now (and bald too)

I'd say that's a go. I always use this calculator for tire games. Works for motos too.

I'm only looking for like $300. With a slightly different sized spare. They were gonna go on my tacoma but it needs a lift and bump stops. And I started riding bikes and stopped caring about the truck.

Just heard about this. A Rider died yesterday on the Special Olympics charity ride in Pinehurst. The guy who died was an avid rider, a former Southern Pines Policeman, and was leading the ride. No details other than it happened in Montgomery County about an hour after the ride started.

I saw that on the news the evening it happened. I figured you would have heard about it sooner since it was in your back yard. Either you or Magoo or Sweetfeed would post up here. Sucks to see a rider crash even worse it was a former police officer.

RIP rider. Saw that on the news.

Sweets moved back home to Beverly MA, about 6 months ago, where she has a new Sweetfeed location and continues to rock.

Sucks she's not in NC anymore. Glad she's doing so good. She sure can cook!! The newest article I saw says the rider lost control on a turn and went over an embankment. At least he died doing something he loved. Hope I'm that lucky.

Tar Heel Speedway

We are having an open practice Saturday, gates open at 1200 an there will be some food available. Come check out some motorcycle Flattrack action or run a lap or two yourself. The track is located at the intersection of Hwy 20 and Hwy 87.

271 Victory Lane

We will also be out there Sunday after Church playing music on the front porch and the track will be open. There is also 35 acres of land to putt around on to see what you can find...I know a mud hole will be easy to find!!!

I may take you up on that Sunday.
Any of the other Sanford riders getting out this weekend? I've got fresh rubber on the DR thanks to NC-Okie.
