You won't regret the purchase my brother. Excellent pants and even BETTER tires. You probly thought it was impossible to make the Firebolt corner better...well...prepare to be amazed!

marko your words could not be more true the pants rock but the tires......... omg it reqiures like no effort to corner the bike unlike the dunlops which had to be 'pushed' through the corner. I would like to thank everybody on here who recommended the chicane pants and pilot powers, it just dont get no better then this forum

on a *****ty note while cleaning the bolt i just noticed my front wheel has some scratches on the spokes from god knows what, so now i gotta have my g/f repaint the wheel (ah maybe when it snows)

another good note is my g/f came back from the salon looking extra hott today, so i got some buisness to take care of

what a up and down day, sorry for the Novel ^

funny you should say that cuz after getting them i did a strip tease for my girl. she liked it, but shes used to my weirdness by now. you should have gone for it just for fun, although your wife may not have been thrilled
