i will NOT be ripped off!

Called a shop that my buddy recommended here in sacramento, the guy he told me to speak with wasn't available so I just got what i'm guessing was an 'off the street' quote.

$420 for michelin pilot roads and a safety inspection, take wheels off bike, reinstall, out the door.

$70 for safety the safety inspection.

thats still $350 for pilot roads!

another shop in town said they would do pilot powers for $300+ tax, i would need to bring the wheels in. they charge $20/wheel if i buy there, or $30/wheel if i bring in off the street.

looks like i need to get me a front stand!

not my size though! theres a site online that has pp's for like $210 but i don't know if thats with fee shipping or not. i'd rather have pilot roads though since they last longer!

120/60/17 and 160/60/17 .

i think i will get my tires from a local shop that meets prices, and get my saddlebags from them too...then i'd just need a stand.

yep only a lil 160... is that bad? theres a realllly nice black/red F4 for sale nearby for only 3900.

i could sell mine this week, get that F4 before i take my trip and i might not even need to get new tires.

although the buyer might be mad when he sees my rear tire! i can't help spinnin the tires on this thing. sometimes i do it from a stop poppin the clutch too hard on a launch just to show some guy on the ZX-14 next to me that he suxorz.

hmm there are so many bikes out there for just a lil bit more than i can sell my F3... i think i'll just put on a new rear tire, take my trip to los angeles and then sell the bike .

i'd go for an SV1000, GSX-R 600 or 750 2002 or newer, 600RR, F4i trying keep it between 4500 and 5500.

im going to get just a rear dunlop 220 for now unless i can get a killer price on a set of them. All I need is a sport touring tire, i definitely cannot "attack" the twisties yet and just take this thing on long trips to save gas.

i could get them (conti attacks) for a good price i don't ride like that, those are the same kind of a tire like a pilot power/dunlop qualifier. i need something that is not going to square off with lots of straight highway riding!
