Sunday, 6/9

Anybody want to ride Sunday? I finally got the Tenere operational after a week of down time and have cleared the schedule. I don't care where or when, as long as I'm home by 6:00.

Paved, dirt, Mississippi, Alabama, go to Barber for the afternoon? Doesn't matter much to me.

I will be at Barber Saturday on track with the GSXR1000 and probably headed home sunday morning BUT if I have enough rear tire left after saturday I may sign up for Sunday if they have any spots left.

STT (Sport bike Track Time) event there this weekend.

I saw that on the calendar. If I could get away on Saturday I would, but it's not in the cards.

Why do I suspect that your rear tire will be GONE by Saturday evening.

For one its a 1000 very unfriendly to rear tires. Actually a worn rear tire is what got me in trouble at Talladega back in march when I got ran into. Worn rear tire on the right side was affecting my drive off the right hand turns which slowed my laptimes putting me in unusual riding company.

That's not going to happen again. Barber surface is somewhat less abrasive than Talladega so its a wait and see how this big beast does there. I certainly cannot afford two $200+ each rear tires. on my 600's a rear would last the whole weekend but the front was worn more on them due to them being able to carry more corner speed than the pig 1000's. The 1000 just kills a rear tire off the turns with the big HP and the front tire ain't on the ground that much during this

Switch and I are meeting at the Parkway Pure gas station on Hwy 35 West of the Trace in Kosciusko at 10:00 tomorrow morning. The have ethanol free gas. From there we are going to work our way up to the 333 Restaurant in Grenada for lunch . After that, who knows?

Switch will be on his FZ-1 and I'll be on the Tenere. Supah will likely join us somewhere along the way on his 990 with the SM tires, so this will be a totally street ride.

All are welcome to join.

Details:

Parkway Pure
1124 South Huntington Street
Kosciusko, MS 39090
33.039086,-89.579532

I might be up for something on Sunday. And yes, the heat blows lately.

EDIT: Actually probably not. I've been informed that Father's Day is not a day that dads get to do what they want to do. Who knew
