I guess putting money into your shop would be better than increasing your bike collection.....

Yeah I'm a Lost Coyote too! jajajajaja Actually Tim's racing my knees are shot to hell. I'm saving them for the Catalina GP. I was stirring the pot because I thought I remembered that Mike had a street Bully.

Yes, I have the Bul, but it is definately not for commuting. I'm about 6" taller and 100lbs heavier than it was designed for. Doesn't stop or go very well with me onboard

I'm pretty sure we have met. Now days I work the pits while my son Tim races his CRF250x in the Novice Class. Our attendance has been spotty at best. Here's a pic of Tim at Checkers:

The main thing is to give yourself enough room to get around and on your bike. Everyone has the same handicap so its not that big a deal.

I fitted a fresh DID chain and 3 tooth bigger sprocket last night. More acceleration, more control in the technical stuff.

After this weekend, the 650R is going to need some serious love. The wheels need to be worked on, Im going to try out the Kenda sponsor/tire program.... the bike just needs to be torn down and loved a bit.

Considering that my show ends in 8 days, ill have time to do it!

CANT WAIT for this weekend!!

Good luck, man!

Hope your sprocket changes help you out some. That start does sound interesting, I hope someone gets some pictures or video, should be pretty cool.
