Fuel light came on as I was going through Riley and it barely made it to Keats. Thats like maybe 13 miles. I have gone as far as 24 miles on the fuel light before. I guess it's time to find out why my fuel mileage sucks so bad.

Btw, apparently Dunlop now has Sportmax Q3's out. I love my Q2's, and it's tire time for me. I think I'm going to try the Q3's.

From just googling them, they have like perfect reviews.

My favorite street/sport tires are the Michelin pilot power pures, by far. I've done 9k miles on a set, on a Busa. I'm trying to find a way to adapt some to my motard.

I think the side config looks best. How much clearance would you have if you kept it in the middle?

Oddly enough I more clearance being in the center. With moving the left side pipe it is very close to the tire under compression. I would have to make the bend tighter to hug the motor if I go that route.

Q3s are cool, I would also consider the new Michelin pilot power 3s, I have run those on my R6 (even raced on them with CCS at Heartland in May) and on other bikes at MAM and Hastings, I would HIGHLY recommend them...

I have Q2's now and they have lasted me quite a while, two years and 5700 miles. I'm pretty well set on trying out the Q3's after the few reviews I've seen have been pretty good.

Yeah, you really can't go wrong with either of them honestly. When are you going to bring that ol honda to the track so you can use more than just the middle of the tire?

Moved them out of the garage to find some stuff. Then rode the old Honda to my cadaver lab.

Its a 71 CB350. I bought it last Summer as a barn find and went through it mechanically, new pipes (they were rusted out), new shoes,tubes and tires. Now I ride it more than my Suzuki. I did have plans to cut it up and make a cafe or rat bike out of it, but I get so many remarks about it the way it is. It just looks old and nasty, but it runs great.

I have been lurking here for a while and it seems like you have been working on yours forever.
