was up there camping at the observatory this weekend.  saw you guys zipping up Sunday :17:

Thanks all for the advice.  I have been trying to call motorhelmets since saturday to no avail.  I would go back to them if they had their free installation promotion again.  Sounds like I can order that tire online for now and take the wheel off to get it installed and balanced for $30 or just try to install it myself first.  I'm pretty capable with tools so I might just give it a go first.

Anyone here ever change their own tires?  I saw a few videos on the subject and it seems easy.  I was planning on using balancing beads if i tried.  They have the rear tire I want for $180 shipped online.  but cheapest I found was $235 to have local shop do it.  Thanks from a brother on budget.

ugly Christmas helmet...

oh yeah!

let us know your thoughts on the 20s. :7:

I'm planning to meet up with some buddies this afternoon to do a little fishing and cigars in Balboa.  Anyone have experience with parking around there?  specifically by s. bay front and coral.,+CA+92662/@33.6047212,-117.892695,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x80dce06ed5f75d73:0xdf6c623769dcbf3a

just watched "On any Sunday". what a great classic film!

Read this sad story this morning.  I was riding up in Ortega just hours before this on Sunday.

loud enough to use with ear plugs?

I have some ear plugs on me so I'll try it later.  but I would say yes since I had to turn the volume down a few times.

I've done this before, its as cool as cool gets for spending 1/10 of what the real thing costs. When the cool factor wears away, I'd highly reccomend just getting a chatterbox or sena (as i did too). It will also do better visual justice to your brand new $430 RF-1200

I agree.  I'm holding out for the Sena 20s , but want to see more reviews from riders before I decide.  Then I'll use the mpow bluetooth for my car aux input.  :7:

Gotta say this little $18 receiver sounds great after tweaking my iphone eq to bass booster on. sounds fuller.

I wanted some decent music listening but was tired of earbuds tethered to my iphone so I decided to pick up a bluetooth receiver off amazon for $18.  I also had some cheap helmet speakers off eBay for under $3.
It's an amazing setup for about $20 bucks.  pairing was easy to my iphone. music quality lacks bass but is super clear.  I just velcro taped the receiver to the helmet and taped in the speakers. Took a 2hour ride up Ortega to the Outlook roadhouse and there was still plenty of power after.  Just wanted to share this setup to those on a budget and don't need the communicator

Drakes still available?  I wear a 31-32 waist.  would they fit me?

ended up at motorhelmets getting tires mounted.  decided to get both front and rear.

just as a side note, the last time I used motorhelmets, I was pleased to see my OTD price was less than the price posted on the website (altho I did take just the wheel in) -,64259.0.html

I agree.  Great service and at $218+tax for a set of Diablo Rosso II's Mounted just couldn't be beat.

with all the crazy/ sad news going on latley, My hearts been heavy and my rides have been much more vigilant and less fun.  I want to wish to all my brothers on two wheels to remember the joys and freedom of riding..... ........keep on keeping on.

Btw, almost everything in the store is 20% off today! might pick up gear.

Condolences to his family.   RIP Quickie

so I decided to take a ride down to yellow devil gear after work to check out Jessica's goods.  Upon leaving I get a holy crap moment. Rear tires are done.  I used to go to mach1 in Costa Mesa years ago but any other good places for rubber?

Damn.. ALL OF THEM? ;)

Damn arm chair proof readers ....... nice catch. :24:

Thanks all for chiming in.  feeling too good on some cognac and cigars so I'll soak all this in tomorrow.  I think cycles unlimited is blocks from me so might call them first.
