If I remember correctly he had too many bike probs so he just parted out the bike and the frame will now decorate his wall as a reminder of the Italian honey that broke his heart (and wallet). I don't know if he was kidding with that story but the pics tend to suggest he wasn't.

Take care,
Gregory

I could have been a squid, but I was too busy posing.

Shamar, you do have to check your tire pressure, that blue-ish haze ain't ok.../images/icons/tongue.gif

What does a blueish haze mean?

It often means the tyre has been 'overheated', due to too high a pressure...
I've had it on my ZXR750 once after 20 laps of Assen and it took me forever to get it scrubbed of.
It affects your grip....

That's what you get when your parents live only 30kms from Assen and have a very big garage to put your bike and a lot of friends' bikes in..../images/icons/tongue.gif
My German friends on the other hand live about 80kms from 'The Ring' and have a very big garage as well!
Live couldn't be better!/images/icons/wink.gif
I try to ride as many circuits as possible.
In may will be on the Ring for a few days and in july will be on the Belgian circuit of Zolder again...
Expect some videos!!!!!!

The bluing is from the tires getting hot but not from too much air pressure. The blue color is the oils coming out of the rubber when the tires are ridden hard. Take a look at race take offs sometime and you'll see the same thing. It will affect grip if you've run them through multiple heat cycles and pulled most of the oil out as this makes the rubber less pliable. Race tires will provide much more initial grip but only for a few heat cycles then they're done, Street tires provide less grip but can handle many more heat cycles.

So instead of taking a grinder to my chicken strips my time would be better spent with a blue marker if I want to impress people eh? /images/icons/laugh.gif

Thanks for the info, that is good to know. I don't think my tires have any blue to them whatsoever due to how easy I ride.

So I was wrong? I heard the 'air pressure too high' from a racer with whom I was riding on a circuit training course...
He said lower the tyre pressure, I did and the blueing didn't happen again...
Sorry Duc for telling the wrong story...
