I attended the premiere of the USGP movie in San Diego and bought a Marty poster... what a great night!
lemieuxmc - Thanks for the reminder about this. I measured the 490 brake stay to be about 3/4" longer than the 465. Doesn't sound like much but it causes some interference back there. I am going to try and shorten it tomorrow.

I would have loved to attend that event. I did pick up the DVD this winter and really enjoyed it. Also the extra clips of the Moates bike being prepped at Vintage Iron. The race itself was great!
