i hope you're not milking your physical therapy and in turn lengthening the healing process... we aren't going to be very sympathetic on the trail

Luckily they havent' been able to do too much pain damage in therapy due to the healing of the rotator cuff. Once that heals , which will be by the time I get back, they smile , rub their hands and say that the fun stuff will begin.


Guess that leaves the question as to coming back..........

I guess I don't get a cupie doll for getting one of the numbers right.......but the 96 is the speed of a 525 with a 3 knot headwind.

88, 92, 96 are max speeds over Readington Skip, Allyn, and Cathy are the order. Me to the pavement first with the slowest top speed, must be my corner speed. 93.8 and 46.8 I'm not sure of, but Allyn is probably trying to tease someone. Oh yea, 46.8 are the minutes Allyn had us lost, I think.

Nigel Top Speed 93.8 (on dirt)

Skip Top Speed 88 (on dirt)

Allyn Top Speed 92 (on dirt)

Kathy top Speed 96 (on dirt)

Thomas top Speed 46.8 (on pavement going down Mt. Lemmon) (it was the "wide ratio" transmission which helped him achieve this)

I call BS , the computer recorded me at 69mph for a top speed. I will accept 46.8 as my average...

And WTF, why no pics of all the air and wheelies I did for you guys!!!

Speaking of, I had the stock gearing on the bike. That included CS sprocket was a 12 , so apparently the guy before me also kind of liked to climb. Without a clutch.

Don't forget that awesome lean angle that Sean was able to observe during the surprise low-speed corner. I have corner speed on the paving.

A 12? You are lucky your chain isn't "chainsawing" through your swing arm. A 12 will hardly let your chain clear the swing arm width.
