what do you suggest? I think it might have been you who suggested Sportbike Performance Handbook to me a long time ago. I haven't finished it yet (A Twist of the Wrist got in my way)

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

I only "flapped" my mouth and 2 of you. and no, I'm done argueing because you just keep saying crap about me so it's not even worth it to argue with you.

No, I didn't recommend that book.

I was talking about you wanting to learn a language. Spanish/German/French are all doable by book, and aren't that tough since they're romance languages. Decide you want to learn Chinese by book, like I did, and you'll probably fail miserably (like I did).

I did decent in Spanish in high school (honors) and college (skipped Spanish 1) but I never liked learning it that way for some reason. I'd like to just go over and learn it from being there (not necessarily Spanish though). After seeing the movie Hero I thoght it would be cool to learn chinese (I don't know which they spoke in that, Cantonese or Mandarin).

Right now I'm in the hunt for the CDL handbook from the MA registry but thats not going so good. Tried 2 registries and called the home office in Boston and no luck. I think they're revising it again.

Re: Is it worth it

I ended up calling Dan Kyle to talk about the racetech vs ohlins, he said that as far as springs go there is no difference to be seen or felt.

Changing the springs without the valves will not cure the harsh drive but stop the diving of the forks. For my weight 175 he recommended 0.95 springs.

Since I am changing the oil he suggests 7.5 instead of th 10 honda recommends.

will let ya all know in the spring how it feels.

BTW he said that I should not have raised the rear en cause the 54 is already fast for turning the downside of faster tur-in is stability loss.

thanks all for you help and stufff
