    Planning on it, but the way I feel right now I'll be lucky if I make it at all. I'm heading to the doctor this afternoon.

    oh and I totally forgot about my steering damper..... I think I blew it up last race. when I got back to the truck after the race (and after the ice cream truck) I noticed the damper was covered in fluid..... Im guessing that means it needs to be rebuilt.

    I need to get on that soon.

    GPR? If so, I think they have a truck at most of the races.

    Im actually not sure what kind it is.... Ill have to look it over and see what needs to be done. It certainly needs love - fluid leaking from something is never good

    Parts with oil on them don't rust :dunno

    The meds are kicking in, I feel better already. I guess I better get to work on my bike.

    hey.... fast is fast! The last Bradshaw run we did, I was up over 80 for a decent amount of time. I was actually looking for more speed out of it!

    insane, really.

    You heading out tonight or in the morning? It's supposed to be a 10am start so you have a little wiggle room in the morning. I'm bailing after work.
