    Tire mounting

    Tim! You are not going to believe this. I got my tires back from the local shop (nice guys), but they mounted the front end on backwards! I even drew a shit load of arrows on the rims to indicate direction. The messed up thing is that I didn't notice until after I mounted the front tire! I am such a wanker! I am considering running them this way just out of pure wankerdom! or wankerDUMB.

    Ask not what the wanker can do for you, but what you can do for your wanker!

    yeah pete-

    get 'em fixed before you use them. i didn't find mine reversed until i was loading up after my first race (another good reason to get things done before the season starts)...so it was too late. i lost the front three times last year, i'm sure it was me....but.

    Joe- I wish I could head down to VIR. I am going to sit in the basement/shop work on the bike and get it ready for Trackday on April 30th. I will be at NHIS in May. I think I am just going to run USCRA this year, since it is my first. Goal, bigger schedule next year.
