Cant wait to get this adventure started. I'll finally answer the question that has plagued me for months, am I doing enough to prepare. That question has motivated me to do things I would not normally do. I got home yesterday from riding and did 2 hrs/8000 revolutions on a elliptical. Months ago if someone told me I was going to be going to a gym and spending 2 hrs on an elliptical I would have laughed my ass off. The motivator... 1100 miles.


Looks Awesome! Great work Phil! Thanks for the bike info, I appreciate it. You mention new cylinder sleeve and piston, did you get all new valves too or the crank balanced? Just curious cause I'm all ears when it comes to learning about bike and race prep.

2 hours on the elliptical? At my local gym here by the beach, that's two precious hours of eye candy watching... it makes cardio time go by fast! Hot strippers and cocktail waitresses have to work out somewhere right? I'm glad you're cranking it up in time for the race. Like you said, you now know the answer to the question... You Are Doing all you can do to prepare, now its time to have fun (well once the flag drops!).

I wish there was eye candy. I did put my 1.5 year old girl on the computer part of the elliptical and she sat there for 15 minutes and handed me a water bottle when needed. That broke up some of the monotony. Still boring as hell but I needed to do it.

In the engine. New rod, main bearings, seals throughout, went through the trans, new clutch, valves, valve guides, valve seals, follower bearings, cam bearings, cam chain and a few other bits.

I don't think "Pussy" popped up once in this thread so you're clearly on the Straight Path! Great looking machine, Give em Hell and as they scream over here "Whoop, Whoop, Whoop, Whoop, Whoop, Whoop!!!".

We are going down through mexicali.

Total budget is more then I like to think about. I can say that my debit card will need to be replaced after the workout it's had.
