I have been sick for a few days as well which has been keeping me off the training..... I guess its better to be healthy and not in shape than to be sick as a dog and not really in shape, right?

Im just going to race on sunday.... I couldnt handle racing two days in a row. Besides, the last time I drove out the day of the race I had hardly enough time to go to the bathroom before the race!

I still need to go find some hardware for the bike.... bolts keep falling out!!

I wont be venturing out on the second loop - I just dont get a chance to ride enough to have the endurance to do two loops. I dont have the experience yet, either.

Cant wait though!! its been over a month since my last race!

Planning on it, but the way I feel right now I'll be lucky if I make it at all. I'm heading to the doctor this afternoon.

oh and I totally forgot about my steering damper..... I think I blew it up last race. when I got back to the truck after the race (and after the ice cream truck) I noticed the damper was covered in fluid..... Im guessing that means it needs to be rebuilt.

I need to get on that soon.

GPR? If so, I think they have a truck at most of the races.

Im actually not sure what kind it is.... Ill have to look it over and see what needs to be done. It certainly needs love - fluid leaking from something is never good

Parts with oil on them don't rust

The meds are kicking in, I feel better already. I guess I better get to work on my bike.

right on man - glad to hear that you are better!! cant wait to see you kicking some ass out there this weekend! its supposed to be faster than usual - so good on ya for keeping the 4 stroke.



Im *almost* tempted to put a smaller sprocket on just to emphasize the strengths of the bike!
