JD. Our calendars are out of sync a couple of weeks. Wish I could make it. I could skirt around the single track on the Wee.

I'm taking a full week off work first week of May to visit the parents in FL so it's going to be tough to get more time off around then.

Hoping you guys plan something for later in the summer also so I can join!

Keep the Shen500 in mind. It' a blast! Last year was early October.

probably most of the roads could be done with the Wee, but there are others where you wouldn't want it...unless you could afford having the Wee lifted off the top of the mountain via helo, or get Chris back from the lefty coast, he'd ride it out for ya.

I just have to convert it back from being a Wee-wing. The shield went from this:

To this:


Time for a DR or tagged WR450.

Close your eyes... HERE COMES MORE SPAM!!!

Im doing a GoPro contest at Cycle World. Its very similar to the TAG game. All you have to do is go to certain spots in Hampton Roads, take a pic, and post it on our FB page. Each pic gets you a ticket. At the end of June we'll draw from the tickets and the winner will get a brand new GoPro Hero 3. If you dont have a FB account just make a fake one. Use a bogus name or something. You dont have to find friends and crap like that just to be a facebook member. Click the link in my signature for more details.

Exhaust Angle

So I bought a TCI Rack for the XR and it is sized to fit with the Stock exhaust. I have a XR's Only exhaust and it sits up higher at the end of the pipe. If I take the bolts out I can Push it down about 1.5 - 2 Inches. I can fab a bracket to bolt it back up to the frame, but what I am concerned about is the angle at which the exhaust would be. It doesn't seem that bad. I am more concerned with getting bad performance or messing up the exhaust some how.


Thanks Guys
