Rode it to work for the first time this year. Temps are getting warmer- it was a balmy 43 degrees this morning. No hint of ice on the road, but some dumbnuts left a big swathe of gravel on the last downhill corner right before the highway.

Running nicer than ever. Low end is stronger, seems a little snappier, decel has a sweet rumble and my idle is finally hanging an even 1400. Thanks Head2wind for the jet kit!

You not gotten yours yet? Anyone that's getting a set in Colorado better hope you're not waiting in the bushes to take theirs from the UPS delivery driver.

Just got my Australia Post tracking number a couple days ago. Don't worry... got my shot gun ready and my German Shepherd on full alert. Anybody trying to poach my tanks on delivery will get an ass-load of buckshot and dog bites

Y'know.. it would be a pretty funny prank if I happened to intercept David's tanks for a day or two... I'm in Golden a couple of times/week.

What day are they being delivered David?

Pirelli Scorpion Rally tires

I did not put these tires on today, rather about 1100 miles ago. Just wanted to share my experience so far, and that experience is hugely positive. Great tire in the dirt, as one would expect. Still pretty damn good on the road, if you don't mind a bit of noise. By a bit, I mean that the tires are much louder than the engine from the riders seat. Yes, these things howl.

One ting that I was concerned about when putting these tires on was how long they would last. I have been pleasantly surprised so far. No measurements were made, but the center groove on the rear tire lugs are still easily visible.



Not too bad for 1100 miles. I would say about 80% paved/20% dirt so far. Unless these things suddenly fall apart, I do think that I will continue using them.
