    Thanks guys! I was hoping to get it all ready for the May 5/6th round today. Drain the anti-freeze and replace with water, wash her, change my counter-sprocket and put new rubber on. I'll take the wheels off and change the sprocket, but everything else will have to wait till warmer weather. I could probably change the water, but, with me working out of state why risk it.

    CCS at Summit Point. Are you gonna head down? I put a few stickers on today. Most of my time was spent cleaning the garage and re-aranging things. Monsstr sold me his old garage cabinets. So it was a bit of spring cleaning. I took my wheels off and I did put a few stickers on her. It was too cold for the glue to set so it took longer then I expected. A few more details and I'm ready to go.

    i poured in my water / water wetter today and did the balance of my safety wiring... fired up the bike to open the thermostat and when she came to life cans of harnet spray and kids bike helmets were falling off my shelving in the garage. you really forget how loud and disruptive the Tigs can be
    What am I doing now ?

    Some say a comet will fall from the sky. Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves. Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still. Followed by millions of dumbfounded dipshits. Some say the end is near. Some say we'll see armageddon soon. I certainly hope we will
    I sure could use a vacation from this stupid shit, silly shit, stupid shit... One great big festering neon distraction, I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied. Learn to swim!!!

    Well, there's a reason I took the pics from a distance. It's not a professional job. But, it'll do for a bodywork that's been thrown down the track a few times. Rick is going to pit bitch the May race. You should come out. Won't Glen, Jason, and Brian be there?

    tech will probably still hassle me about the plate size... we will see sooner than later though. you know how it is... you get all your stuff ready ... get up there ... go into tech and they say ... no .. no ... nope ... that 'aint gonna' work.... go see 'vendor-x' and get a $500 bucks worth of stuff we just told you you need
