    34-Figured Cooter would be burning up the track this weekend. Do not know where I got the idea you were in Santa Cruz.

    Phoenix is not too far from Faywood--when you get your bike up, go there for a soak, rent a cabin.

    Had the XR1200X out yesterday for an hour or so. Blistering heat here at 48 degrees. I like that bike more every time I use it.

    Theres so much I need to do to the EBR. Track duty accelerates a maintenance schedule dramatically, as well as trips to Revzilla.com for tires. I will say that along with watching The Bubbles improve quite rapidly, going to the same track(s) over and over has really helped me increase speed and safely drop lap times quite a bit.

    Got a "track Addict" app that not only does lap times, it is invaluable for tracking corner speed and will compare real-time laps back to back. $9? worth it!

    Got a fork leg that weeps just a tiny bit. I could probably 'Seal Mate' fix it but I'd rather pull them apart and have an ol' look-see. This Fridat-Saturday are at Chuckwalla (Femwalla) are the last of this year so I'll have some time.

    10K of hard use and time for a fork oil change anyway. I really like where I have it adjusted, and I've spend a couple bucks to have the local "suspension guy" at the track take a look too. They ain't no Dave Moss, but any adjustments were just put back to where I had them and they aren't bottomed out, so I'll keep the same 10w spec and make sure the sliders are nice. I could use slightly heavier springs, but that just opens Pandoras box of upgrades. LAP will sell a PAIR of NEW OE complete forks for $400. Wow. I should get a whole new set of BPF's just in case.

    Since I upgraded to Bremo brake pads "Track" compound it really made the perimeter brake so much better! I've quit thinking of a front end upgrade For $80 they are so completely worth it. Tons of initial bite so I can check them at the end of the straight and zero fading and bluing of the rotor now. I get a little brake lever softness still when they are boiling but its manageable and vastly better.

    Just a pad change. Who knew

    I should be working on the EBR in that garage for tomorrows departure to Chuckwalla, but I was at the shop checking fluids on the bike hauler, got bored, and saw a hood scoop on the shelf as I was holding a cordless 4 1/2" grinder "Death Wheel".

    I'm dangerous when I'm bored.

    I'm still not sure if it's Crackhead or Cool, but hell, I feel like I'm driving a video game now and it sure makes moms push their strollers faster across the crosswalk!

    Think that bike would fit me perfectly. Hand her over!

    Awesome that you're still squeezing in some track time.

    Got in my last run at Thunderhill up past Sacramento about a month ago, before they closed for the season.
    Their West Track has this crazy drop where I swear I could catch air if I were more of a daredevil.

    "Well.....Bye."

    I always get excited when I see this post on the Front Right Column of the BuellXB home page.

    I think... Finally he's gone... It's taken Sixty-One pages to say "Good Bye"...

    But then someone on the Board leaves a "Free Beer" out and he's still hanging around.

    For the Love of God... Stop Leaving the "Free Beers" out...
