Whats the datecode on those tires?

Next time I have it apart, I'll be sure to check...thanks

Haha, I can't let you be the only one with "red" gear...

I'll be around some, but things are still busy. I want to get some riding in this winter, might have to break down and get some electric clothes.

Bruce,

I'm down to help. I've been looking at them for the xchallenge so I'd like to learn more about them.

This video contains 2 of my favorite pastimes. Motorcycles and sailing. I just never thought to combine them.

I saw that. Now I can get back into track days. Time to find an old M3 to turn into a track rat.

Been trying to come up with a plan to make some changes to my f650 and came across an older post in Vendors. Not something I need but I've seen some G650 Xchallenge talk here lately so. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=622796
Looks pretty cool.

I have been considering a rally fairing for the DRZ as well, seems like a good place to put all your stuff and get some wind protection as well.
