boy, it's been awhile since I last posted! I hope everyone is well:)

It's been a fairly eventful, and yet uneventful few months. there've been a few tech days:

At Avery's

Chuck has no idea what this part is for;)

The Socal Airheads like their liquid refreshments;)

At Andy's

Andy gave a GREAT welding demo/class

It's been great to see my airhead bretheren:)

I've been working on a bikini fairing...

started with a mini pos helmet

started melting lexan

the first bubble - FAIL

the second bubble was made after I did some reading about gravity bubbles

the third bubble turned out pretty darn good! I didn't bake the moisture out long enough, but the shape is alright.

fit to the helmet

mock it up and start making brackets

got some hardware and used up the last of my orange paint:)

I'm not sold on it. but I'm sticking with it for a while...

in not as good news, I stripped out the shaft drain hole. damn. the previous owner probably started it, but i definitely finished it:( sadly it was JUST before I was supposed to ride up to Born Free 5 with friends. So now i'm trying to decide if I want to helicoil it, oversize plug it, or expandable rubber plug it...

if anyone's interested, Born Free 5 was pretty interesting.

I hope everyone is doing well:)
