Lucky Dog!!!

I was stuck in the office all day long still trying to get caught up from holiday leave.

I did get to go out in the garage and practice balancing on the bike for about 20 minutes.

Maybe 11 if you include the dab?

I primarily ride no-stop events anyway, so I always feel a little guilty doing stuff like that.

Replaced a steel clutch plate in my sons gasser.( Brought the clutch height back to spec.) Clutch should be good for another year or two.

Seized my piston. I'm batting 1000 with this bike.

I'll tear down this week after I reassemble my other bike. Don't need 2 piles of bikes in the garage at a time.

Sorry to hear that! At least it happened in the middle of the winter and not during the riding season.

Washed the mud off my bike from a New Year's ride, then took a few laps around the house... Better than nothing.

I stood on mine again today. Not sure why I'm bothering, since stopping is going to be verboten.

Got to have balance when going slow. And someday you will start riding ITSA events!

I've been informed this was caused by user error & I didn't let the bike warm up enough. "4-corner" cold seize.



Don't pass Go. Don't collect 200$


650$ with core exchange from Rising Sun. At least I'll know the engine is pretty fresh now.
