Can't afford a new rear every couple weeks. I ride hard but am very weary of all the idiots out there. Was on I95 one day in my van and had the crap scared out of me by some fool passing me w/ his front end in the air at 90mph or so. I was so startled I swerved and nealy took out his buddy passing me on the other side. As a rider and a driver I try to balance both. Again I do love riding hard but just just in the right places. Also I've lost a friend and another is paralyzed.
