He did say that but it doesn't mean it's the same as he is running. I rebuilt both my old CBX750 engine and my mates CB250 engine, but they weren't the same. Well, except for the part where they both exploded after 200kms because I am the worst mechanic in the entire world.

Pyndon sounds soooo Happy! He really kept his cool out there and made some great decisions on how to run the stage.
Glad he gets a rest tomorrow, last night didn't sound very comfy.

According to Karate badasses and 80s rock bands, headbands are ridiculously awesome.







I actually do like the headband, but Capt. Morgan pose + headband is admittedly hillarious.

Last year, we got ponchos and no pads to lie on, so my sympathy is limited.
