Giid Tires are Great

So you guys said to get some good tires and most said go roads. Was talking to my buddy last week and he had a set if take offs that he had on craigslist for sale. They had 60% or more life left on them and he said " man you can just have them if yah want" I said cool and when he brought them to me they were Pilot Power 3 2ct's in great shape. He changes tires every year regardless of ride time lol. Well you guys were right, they transformed the bike. Now it wants to turn in and I dont have to "muscle" it around much at all anymore. Really made me like the bike again. So if you have noticed I have pretty much gave up on selling it because now its worth too much to me lol. So I am going to start slow and do the racetech front springs amd then move to the back spring. I just didnt give the hornet enough time as I will admit I am impatient and was basing its performance on my previous bikes which were super sport and super bikes. I think I am starting to get the feel for it now. And once I do the 900rr exhaust swap I will lose another 25lbs. Thanks for hanging with me guys.

Installed the new Savage windscreen, helps at full tuck but no where else, just looks cool and protects the gauges. Also took the wheels off and gave them a fresh coat of black satin, primer, paint, clear. I think it helped a lot.
