No, that is something I can get a fix on anytime (there's no snow). Just really day dreaming...

Now, in reality, I am close to having the TA wrapped up but I realize I need to upgrade an upgraded spring I have on my rear cr250 shock. With most of the bits and pieces it is now apparent that the spring is grossly underrated for the bike. So I am working with Mark at Hyperco springs and we are designing a new spring to accurately match the bikes load and ride. In going with the spring value of 11.5kg/mm as has been previously suggested in this thread, it gives a very mushy feeling to it and compresses to near 90% shock travel.

I plan on having the spring ordered by tomorrow and hopefully in house before the end of the month. I know I could go with a Wilber or other shock but sometimes I get a stubborn streak and push through till I get something done I planned on doing.

Oh well, back to the daily grind...
