That was a great writeup. You had me grinning ear to ear! Can't wait to read your next race report!
How is the clutch pull on your bike? My IT490 is pretty stiff even with a new cable. It was pumping my arm up in the tight woods. I have a clutch arm extender arm that I am going to give a try. I dont know about you but when I stalled mine in the woods I had to fish for neutral before restarting so I light it up again without risking too many kicks!
BTW, I got some very very good news today
