Damn, I tried to get Greg's number from Aaron but he was fagging out. I was bummed out all day cause I couldn't race. Then I got a flat and had to drive on a donut .

Although I missed racing, I did the right thing I was halfway there when I got a service call from a long time elderly customer that had no heat. He's a semi retired judge and someone I like to have in my court if you know what I mean. For a year, I've had intermittent outages and I could never find the problem. I finally found it Bad gas regulator that would fluctuate the gas pressure down to 5" WC, which is very bad. I've tested it many times and it always checked out and finally it failed while I was there.

I'll get some racing in again soon enough in two weeks

Wasn't talking about the Hammer run, was referring to the race to the bottom of that SoCo bottle

Looks like the weather is going to be good for Friday night.

Better get those headlights adjusted.

Excuse my asshat response. Bad day. To answer you seriously, nowhere. The bike is great off road, just too heavy. The torque of the 800 is amazing in the nasty stuff, but the suspension is not up to par. It lacks adjustability and is way too soft. As delivered it dives while braking and the front end doesn't track very well at high speed in rough terrain. Plus the engine is a huge part of the frames integrity, one bad crash and... who knows. I would love to see what is possible with a couple grand in suspension upgrades. One thing it has going for it is the low center of gravity.
