Well, I've kinda spilled the beans anyway.

New wheels to fit those brakes. I was sad to see the Apexs go, but I stepped it up a bit...

I'd kinda like a house and a 2nd car before going HPF. I know, I know super reliable and all but after watching my buddy deal with a F/I track car...

It's surprisingly hard to buy toilet paper with the M3 in the shop and this being the daily (left):



I did pick up a rack of ribs and a bottle of scotch on it the other night. #mancard ftw

i understand HPF is pricey, so how do you get home if you shop for groceries on the bike?

Incidentally, my garage door opener gave up the ghost today... which makes it hard to get the bike in.

So I went in through the mail room. Got some weird looks...
