tire pressure!!

hey everyone be sure to check your tire pressure before riding today. most of you usually do this im sure as do i but old murphys law will bite you hard. the one time i did not (yesterday), i bent into a sharp on- ramp and my front end was pogoing up and down so bad i almost lost. When i put a gauge on it my front had 14 psi! just do this today before you throw a leg over...

Thanks for the reminder. It is always a good idea to check them. Glad all came out OK.

Ouch, 14....that could have been bad. I check 'em every time I ride just in case. They seem to lose about a pound per week depending on the outside temperature.

Haaa, been there! That reminds me of the first street bike I ever bought...was test riding it (KZ650) at a motorcycle dealership in Houston and it tried to kill me. When I took it back from it had 15 lbs in both tires.
