I found a killer little paved road (CR 18) that runs from Paw Paw,WV to Great Cacapon,WV. Lots of switchbacks and 3 horseshoe
turns, very few houses and no traffic: sweet!

There is a low water toll bridge ($.25 one-way) over the Potomac at Old Town,MD. The lady at the toll booth said the bridge
had been in operation since 1937. Just a few yards past the toll bridge I took this picture of the C&O Canal-Lock 70.

I'm running the XR650L/SM on 4/8, 5/7 and 5/20. After that I gonna run the CBR1000RR for the rest of the season. Part of me wants to sell the CBR and build a CRF450R/SM. If the 'tard thing works out on the track I probably will sell the CBR. I just don't need to go 175mph.

The XR is air-cooled and may get too hot on the track. If that happens I'll have to ride the CBR.

it should do fine, run a synthetic blend oil and that'll do wonders.
any suspension work on the tard? i have a guy that will work wonders on that bike's suspension.

I changed oil Friday night to Repsol 4T.

I'm gonna leave the suspension alone. I want to be able to switch back to Dual Sport mode easily: swap wheels, caliper and master cylinder and hit the dirt!

So how 'bout you? Is the DRZ ready to go? Do you still ride it on the street?

yeah, with the suspension done it's useless in the dirt. the DRZ is ready to go. i just need to get the coolant out of it, and throw some tires at it. i might even have a new toy with me by the 8th.
we'll see.
