    unOFFICIAL Thanks Trump thread.

    Well thanks to you guys everything costs more to buy now. An extra $16 for tires thanks to scotus online sale tax. Leave it to republicans...but arent the dems all about higher taxes...no. Great voting! Imbiciles Last year these tires were no tax and cost $240

    Whose is going? (Gap trip)

    I got lost when me and my brother tried to find it. I have not been down to that since 2005. So i got us about 1/4 of the way. I also remember a restaurant on a corner down there somewhere that the deck hung over the creek behind it. What a great place to relax and have a bite.

    Right on. Such a waste of a trip not too. Maybe next year ill come ruin the party. LOL. Probabaly end up selling the R1 for a fz10 or put a fz10 top tripple and handle bar on the R1. Newer sportbikes are getting too agressive seating. I could ride my 03 R6 for 3hrs straight. Im ready to get off the R1 in 45 mins.

    Whose is going? (Gap trip)

    If u mean guys like me then hell yeah haha. But the ambulance guys told me they pick up mostly cruisers from the ditches and they rarely have helmets and have the worst injuries. I cant remember the route exactly, but a buddy of mine took a group of us down a rd called war woman that ran way down into GA. That was a great ride.

    Amazon & Sportbikes4Hire.com

    I got sent the wrong brake pads for my truck before from amazon. motherfucker seller stuffed some generic bullshit pads inside a raybestos box. amazon refunded me 100%. I didn't have to send the shit back. I was able to show proof via pictures. which they did require me to do. so yeah, amazon isn't all that great and I probably wont buy much other than a gal of motul once a year.

    Trackday Sandbagging

    everyone is looking for a payday. I suppose the plantiff has more money than brains. bought a bike he has no business being on, started riding it right away at the track in a class far over his head. who honestly gets target fixation on a big wide open track? the video should help him lose his case.

    Tire install?

    I can't believe dirt bike tire are directional. wtf! and now dunlop is putting green dots on tires too. can't wait for the next "expert tire guy" to tell me I put it in the wrong spot why his bent, out of round rim needs 2.75oz is wrong because I put the green dot in the wrong spot. lol

    Tire install?

    they think a cruiser takes the same time a sportbike does. so every time he comes out ahead, he loses that same amount a job or 2 later. he worked at triump in cincinnati and made way more money but again, the fag that is in charge kept fucking him on his hours and never even got his last paycheck because they said he stole tools. the tools were his. they have a reputation of doing this to all their techs. so anyone reading this don't work for triumph of cincinnati. I'm just doing this for the hell of it. I make ok money. could I do more on flat rate. yes. however, like I said you work on some pile of shit like a 1997 polaris wave runner thing(not sure the exact name of theirs) like we have out back right now you lose your ass. basically work for free. sit and diagnose it after it sat for 3 years. then they waive all of the diag fee if they decide to let us fix it. oh and if it doesn't fix it, you get back charged the whole time. so you end up owing the shop money. lol fuck flat rate pay.

    Tire install?

    as long as the service manager doesn't fuck you. and here, you don't get paid for diagnostics. which often takes hours. and often accept old garbage bikes that been beat to death. also lots of wiring issues and you have to figure it all out in an hour. after watching the flat rate guys bitch all day I'll take hourly. im often doing more work than they are. the one guy worked all day and made 2hrs flat rate in 5hrs. because of the way this shop bills. he had to pull the entire exhaust off a suzuki cruiser to get the rear tire off. took him 3 hrs to do 2 tires and got paid for 1. then does a cbr1000rr 2 tires and an oil change in 50 mins. that's how bad this shop fucks flat rate guys.

    Tire install?

    Im sure. You know why? Flat rate pay. A mechanic worth a shit doesnt like flat rate pay. Especially when a service manager has never been a mechanic he always under estimates the time. This doofus where i work thinks a valve check on a modern bike is a 45 min job. So thats all the tech makes. I told them id only work there if it was hourly. Theres no damn way im helping pay for the work by doing it for free. And thats flat rate in a nutshell. You also lose your ass when doing warranty work. Its always pays half the time it really takes.
