okay i am going to sell my dirtbike... i might get at MAX 700 out of it (it is old and looks crapy but runs good)

Didn't you say that you already have a jacket, helmet and gloves (although not the newest)? If that's the case, then I'd get a tire(s) because that one (those) will need to be replaced soon. But if you do get $700 out of the dirtbike, you should be able to afford the new tire(s) and pants. The Joe Rocket ballistics will be good enough for normal street use. Trust me, jeans won't do squat. I'd rather have an old (but sturdy) jacket and good pants than a new jacket and a pair of jeans.

Also, after buying the new tire(s), remember, they will be VERY slick for the first 60-100 miles, so don't get wild leaning into turns. Slow and easy on new tires.
i have everything but pants and jacket and can i get just one tire??
speedworks!!!!!! what kind of a deal can you get me on tires?!?!

SPEEDWORKS WERE ARE YOU MY MAN!!!......AND WOMAN?!??!?!?!?!?!!?!?!

NEED SOME DISCOUNTS :dthumb: said:
The problem with tires is shipping - there's an extra $5 UPS handling fee on top of the normal rates (and a tire weighs about 15lbs).

Beyond that ... it's really almost impossible to compete with the big online tire places - we don't order hundreds of sets at a time, so our costs are a lot higher. We pretty much just do tires here at the shop where we can be competative due to being able to mount and balance as part of the price.

If it were during the summer, I could send you a race take-off for $65 + shipping that would at least get you a couple thousand miles :) But I don't have any right now.
