I doubt they check if you park in the parkades. I didn't get any tickets when I parked in the thunderbird parkade for about a good 2 weeks.

or just pay 30bucks a month for free parking anywhere on campus lol

Hey guys - one thing to be very cautious of right now is that if you are placing orders for parts/gear through local shops their pricing for most vendors has increased pretty significantly over the past 30-60 days. A 90 cent dollar has made an impact.

Whenever possible I will ALWAYS shop brick & mortar even if they can't completely match the price (as long as they try) but it's gonna get dirty out there now...

IE ~ I got a quote in January for a part at $529.95+tax. Went to place the order now and vendor/Canadian distributor has increased the price to $589.95+tax due to the currency fluctuation.

But that said - buying from the US/online won't necessarily help because we are all earning income in Canadian dollars.

the reason i haven't dumped money into suspension yet is because im still on the fence about selling the r6 and getting a 675r as the race bike instead man.

I would probably chose the 675R Ern, unless the R6 was the 08+ model that comes with the retractable intake.

I've never seen that particular jacket in person so can't comment its quality specifically. As to perforated, for me the more airflow the better. If you're overheated it affects your riding, focus and decision making especially on longer rides.
Carry around a cheap fold-able windbreaker with you if you are worried about being too cool. They fold up to the size of a wallet, keep it in your pocket, wear it over or under your leather jacket if you get cold. That will keep you comfortable in a pretty broad temperature range.

I have a perforated Dainese jacket and it flows a good amount of air.
More so noticeable when the air gets cooler.
Wearing any kind drifit base layer helps as well.

Yep, just have to be careful if you have an under-tail exhaust as that area can get a bit warm and melty.

I have the alpinestars gpr perforated jacket. Warm/hot days is great but if it's cool outside you get cold fast. Just bring a super thin windbreaker and stuff it under the back seat.
