I'm not sure if he's ignorant, incompetant or just unaware when he blatantly rips people off.
i called for a set of pirelli slicks last year, was quoted somewhere north of $700. keep in mind this was before the pirelli price hike that was introduced this season. mspeed quoted me $435 lol

I'm guessing no-one else went to the Byrne road? there were probably up to 50+ bikes easy, and a shit ton of cars. But I could care less for most things on 4 wheels these days, and it's not like most of these guys work on their own cars anyway... aside from throwing F7ILTHY decals on them.
The F7ILTHY philosophy... throw shitloads of money at shops so people can applaud your bank account, then pose with your car as if you're something special.

I don't think that's fair. Anybody on wheels is automatically a bro, self-built or not.

Well, I take some of that back. The douches are the guys that feel it's ok to fuck around and burn out/ drift out of the parking lot causing the cops to come to future meets and give everyone VI's.

Weather seems semi decent this Tuesday. As long as it doesn't rain, we can still grab a quick drink and then head out somewhere. I'd prefer not to lead the group ride as I'm still a newb but if someone wants to take on that role, I'm all for it. We can meet 7pm if everyone can make it.

Everyone still interested?
