Ive found one of the biggest things for me personally about riding is Peace Of Mind. Its priceless and at times possibly saved my ass just being OCD about things and deciding not to ride if things are less than perfect (even though yes i bought those fucked up EBC HH pads and ride with them). Good call. Im doing chain/sprox soon myself, enjoy buying yer new chain/sprox! Ever seen that pic of the guy who had all the skin sheered off his feet? Its a good one! You dont wanna be him and we dont wanna read about ya getting your lower leg cut off, etc... Down time is good time to be constructive about other things regarding riding.
