In preparation for attending Reg Pridmore's school on the Streets of Willow at the end of the month, (and because Nicky Hayden didn't draw my ticket at Laguna Seca) I took my wheels and a set of Dunlop Q2s to Ride Wright Wheels in Anaheim, CA last week.
Naturally, the weather has precluded any serious runs on the butt dyno but I can say that the proprietor of Ride Wright, Mr. Sam Wakim is a pleasure to do business with and he sealed my rims for not much more than the price of a pair of tubes.
Anyway, about four pounds of inner tubes are in my garage instead of in my tires and as said before, if you are going to lose weight on your bike, there is no better place than inside the tires.
06 Sport Classic with gas tank #3, Sealed stock rims by Ride Wright, Fat Duc Mixture Control, Zard slip-ons, Sel-Motion damper, minor air box tweak, Cycle Cat adjustable bars, Whistler Cruisader, 15mm preload in the forks, "comfort seat", and my own fender elimination with Lite'N Boltz for the plate.
