Well, after 2 weeks on leave in Arizona, I am back to work and regular life... I missed the bike and being on here... I'm also probably not gonna get to move on modding my bike for a few months as my truck needs two new batteries and that's gonna cost me 260 bucks...Anyway, I'm back and I'm glad I am...

Also see there are several new members since I was on last...

Welcome to NN folks!

Oh I am! The wife and I went for a ride on friday night and i've ridden to work once so far... I have enjoyed every minute of it...of course would be more fun it my brake pads would work like they should...im gonna bleed the brakes hopefully this weekend. I hope that cures my issue... they stop fine at higher speeds but not at all good enough at slow speeds ...

Sounds strange maybe change them for some harder pads that warm up quicker!

lol I'll see what I can do Zan!

Is anyone interested in getting the picture game back up and running?

Morgan-What pisses me off is I just bought those pads. Good thing they are pretty cheap...lol My stock brake pads stopped better than these EBC's... Guess I should stick with the stock stuff...

I might look into those. Thanks Morgan!

The picture game is someone challenges everyone to take a picture of their bike and something else. The first person to post a picture as described gets to make the next challenge... and so on.... guess its called the picture challenge or something like that...

They are good that's what I will put in mine once I start doing trackdays again ,but for now the standard kwak ones will do ,they are on their way out thankfully so the missus can't moan about new pads as they are essential lol

lol yeah I hear ya! when I told my wife I need to replace the front brakes again bc they aren't working well, she said, "well can't you put the EBC's on the back and put the stock pads on the front so that you're not wasting money?" lol I said I could, but if I need to brake hard I don't want the front to throw me from the bike and sometimes it is better to brake more with the rear... they are cheap so I might just buy stock pads all around...lol

So I did a brake fluid swap on the bike and the front brakes are MUCH better now!!! Should've done that a long time ago!!! lol

Oh and I put blue racing brake fluid that I used in my GTO in it too...
