MattP Posted November 21, 2007 Share Posted November 21, 2007 Ok, so I quit being such a cheap SOB today and got a new rear PilotRoad (new tires are soooo pretty ...). Rode over to a vacant school parking lot and started doing some lazy turns to try and get the new tire scrubbed in a little bit. I have never really been much of a 'peg dragger', but the tire started feeling good, and I was feeling good, so I started getting tighter and tighter in my turns, and then *scrape*! Pretty cool! Other side! Cool! ....uh, not so much. I got home and was looking at the bike, and what the ___?! Not only had I been scraping the peg feelers, I also succeeded in scraping the belly pan and the tupperware just forward and down from where the front of your boot would be. WOW. That's a new one. I guess the question is: Anyone else do this and feel as dumb as I do? Here I am trying to overcome the lean and I scrape the damn plastic up!!! The only good thing is that it's pretty hard to see, unless you're looking for it, but I know it's there (know what I mean?). Anyway, lemme know your thoughts on today's little oops. Thanks.
