Temps down to like 60's today. It was pretty cold. I threw on a sweater, jeans and my gear and i went for a "spirited" ride. And shit!! my bike was like 10 times faster today.

I love the cold weather when it comes to performance......as for safety, not so much.

My Pilot powers heated up quick and i was leaning hard without any problem. I still love the pps sooo much. They heat up so quick. :D

Question.

What tire pressure you guys running in the 50-60 temp range????

normally i start with 32/30 when cold (55-65 degrees) like this for the street...that way it would be equivilant to say 34/32 when say 75-84'ish.

But i defineately agree on the added power levels, makes me feel like when i put on the +2 gearing.
tomorrow morning should be pretty wild with the zx10r, have to check the tire pressure again on the pre-ride check

In theory you run the same pressure you normally would. A lower psi will let your tires heat faster then a higher psi if they arent getting up to proper temps. Michelin race are set cold and most other tires are set at pace temperature.
