    first let me start by saying this...

    no helmet laws on cycles are refuckintarded. i was going to airjockie's place today, i crossed the border from MA to CT and some harley biker took off his helmet and was trying to fasten it in his helmet bag at a high speed. needless to say, he lost control of the helmet and it slammed into the windshield of the car behind him. not mine thankfully. it was a skullcap type of helmet and achieved some sort of lift.

    next, last night my two back tires were slashed. here they are. the slashes are where most of your "sidewall rubbing" occurs on track day or autocross.

    next deal, driving ~65 on the way to an awesome chinese/japanese sushi buffet... i had a high speed blowout on my steelie.

    shitty. i drove 120+ miles BACK HOME on the donut. ive lost some of my innerwell fairing, the bumper mount holes got fucked, and my cherished mudflap (rare as fuck to find OEM ones in the JY) is gone. 3 outta 4 left :(

    shitty. had an awesome time at airjockies, and he really knows how to pick the food places. B)

    My slicks are way better than Nitto... Just drive your Walmart tires around with bad CV joints. :)
