I attended the finals of the Arabian Drag Racing League tonight. Thought I'd share the bike photos. This was my first time shooting in 100% manual mode, so I don't have a lot of action shots. Enjoy.






























ETA: My favorite photo of the night:

Qatar is probably the second-most Westernized Arab county, with the UAE in first.

ETA: It looks like the Qatari team is managed and primary staffed by Americans.

My 450EXC deal fell through, guy decided he wanted to keep it at least for awhile longer. I was headed to pick it up in the morning.
I'll keep beating on the WRR. Maybe I'll stop by & look at the new orange shop in Marietta tomorrow, since I was looking anyway...

That reminds me to mention this. Won't put it in the Flea Market as I don't own it, but I know a guy who is selling his pristine 2009 Husqvarna TXC450. Like new, only a couple hours use on it. Beautiful shape. He's asking $4,500 but I think $4,000 would buy it. I already have a TE310 otherwise I'd do it for myself. I can help make an intro if anyone is interested.

Later,
M

I hate to change the subject or lack there of......but I have a technical question.

I'm revamping the look of the 150r and part of my plan involves changing the seat cover.
Seat cover. Check
Little diagram of how to put it on. Check.
Staple gun (t50) with 1/4 staples. Check.

Staples actually sticking and staying where I put them. Negative.

So any tricks?? Do I need to buy an air driven stapler?

I think it hilarious that with all the work I've done on this bike, it's the fricking seat cover giving me hell.

Yeah a spring loaded staple gun won't sink them in. I've used a pnumatic stapler with good results though.
