Damn Deep ..... glad you are ok.

If it makes you feel better at least you didn't do like I did a few years back and lowside it in front of just about every .net member in the parking lot of Fast Eddies!!

Always remember man .... track take offs take longer to heat up on the street and with the temps only getting colder that time frame increases!!! If you are only commuting 5 min you didn't even get the tires "less cold".

It's winter time ...... lower tire preasure = more contact patch on the street.


God Speed Jeff! You'll never be forgotten.

BOOSTZX3 : in all seriousness head injuries ain't no joke. I've had around 10 concussions and now I ride a Buell Don't let it happen to you!

cold tires scare the hell out of me. glad to hear you're ok. for those of you that are running DOT race rubber right now, what PSI would you reccomend for street use?

(don't mean to threadjack, just thought it would be good info for other riders in your shoes)

Ouch,

Cold tires suck. Cold DOT race tires suck even more. If you're planning on riding through the winter for commuting you might consider spooning on some sport/touring tires. They are specifically designed to develop grip at lower temps. The additional siping helps deal with the crap that tends to build on the streets during colder/dryer months as well.
