Right.
You get "credit" for getting me out training
You get "blamed" if I hurt myself during training



You also get blamed for running me into the ground so bad that I leave an Arai helmet at the trailhead.

OK, I'll take the blame on that one.

Well I just sent it off this week so It will be a while before I get it back.
I decided that it I am going to put the Big Bore motor in the XCF-w chassis. It will be easier since that chasiss has the correct wiring harness for the 196watt charging system already in it.

I was wanting to use the linkage suspension for the race but it's not worth the time and effort for me to try to get that done, at least not for now.

I got a suspension sponsor so both bikes will get the full works suspension wise. That will be nice in case I change my mind later.

I'm hoping to do some light testing/ night practice this weekend. We just got alot of rain and it's supposed to be realy nice weather this weekend so the conditions should be perfect.

The first thing I want to try is two 8" spots and one Squadron, then check the charging system to see if it is keeping up.

My machinist in Kansas got some parts out to me. I'm stoked!





I've had a few different frame mounted light setups but this will be, by far, the nicest. I can't wait to start testing! I'm going to steal Frog's idea and go out early tomorrow Morning Pre-dawn.

Took a step backward this weekend when I rode my practice bike into about 5 feet of water. No water in the oil but alot of sand in the airbox. I'll probably need to do a top end on it this weekend.

I did get about 100 miles of night riding in though. Killed about 20 field mice and 2 rabbits. It was weird, at one point I was unsure if they were commiting suicide or attacking.



We are still finalizing the light design. Kansas Machine Co. Inc. Ltd. did a sweet redesign on the frame bracket. Dropped some mat'l and consequently some lb's.





I am psyched to get everything mounted and tested!

That is way more fancy than the one I am working on. I should have some pics of my light today or tomorrow. This damn work thing is really making it hard to get things done. Looks like our light should be around 7 lbs and with two 50w HIDs.

Looking forward to the pics! You are using 8" reflectors?

I will use this setup during the day, save the bigguns for the nightime.
These Squadrons are amazingly bright, better throw and brighter than the Diablo HID. If I run into the dark before getting the big lights I'm good, plus they are an added safety factor, making me visible during the day. I have had alot of close calls with spectators going backwards on the course.

We are going to be running a HID in the day also, that way if we are late getting to the light we have something. Sucks about the water in the bike, hope everything is good with it.
