When Jerry and Kim hit Pcola last year and stayed w/ me i hauled a bigass DOT cone out to the road to show them entrance to my long driveway-- when i heard the bike getting close i stepped out and as Jerry steered in i could hear him laughing at the cone from 200' away

Some shared shit never gets old.

Lore

I want some of those Cone salt shakers

Thanks again for the help in kicking, pushing, and pulling. Went through the bike last night, found two things.
  1. Clutch pads spec'd out at a generous 1.0mm. Service interval is 2.5mm
  2. Valves were a bit....tight. Should have remembered to check them after lapping the valves

Running out of systems to fix here

Better late than....

Sorry it seems like an age since BQF!!! Finally got round to dumping the few photos I took to Smugmug....











No action photos!

Really enjoyed this year, thanks guys

Think we did well to stay together as a group - a few close calls but we got there.

New record - only one bike drowned? Well done Adam for sticking with it!

I doubt anyone will say you did a bad job of leading. We all had a great time. Maybe put up some arrows so I know where to turn and can get slowed down next time,

Is that what that was!? I thought that was a nail hitting my swing arm.
