    The weather lifted late morning and off I went. I ended up next to the Ocala Gran Prix tent.

    Looking inside you could see this:

    This guy is my son, Tim.

    Tim won his final, but was penalized 1 second for a race start infraction. He didn't commit said infraction, but the appeals process was stacked in favor of FKCS. He had to settle for 2nd.:baldy

    I rode home and cooled off after the event, proud of my 17 year old for handling himself like an adult through the whole thing.

    Use to run a V1, saved me from a few tickets when I use to speed. Had one ticket when a cop was running in Pop mode. Would have been fine but I was the only car around so it never registered.

    Thanks Sanjoh, I see the guy that was offering the Harmonizer is MIA or something. I decided to make a home made one and give it a try.

    Did you go for the tag?

    Thanks for the info, I found this one and made it in the garage this morning.http://www.powerchutes.com/manometer.asp

    Changed the final drive and gearbox oil. Was going to do the brake fluid but the FLAPS was out of DOT4 and I didn't want to go anywhere else late on a Friday night. Ill get them next weekend.

    Replaced both front turn signals with el-cheapo LED ones. Was pleasantly surprised that the LEDs work perfectly with the old Kisan SignalMinder out of the box.

    Now I just have to find rear signals that work with my Hepco & Becker crash bars.

    Fell in love with the new one. Had to adjust a hose clamp that was probably a dealer oversite during set up.

    What followed was 120 miles of bliss.

    And I have to say the CADS meeting tonight was a great one.

    North Alabama, picked it up from a private seller. Previously loved for only 200 miles, and he had most of the necessary mods already done :clap.

    I have not been off road yet, still working through the break in. I like to have all my RPM available in the sand :ricky

    Those Terra's seem to be popular in St.Aug.

    That pic says it all, he probably should just go ahead and start looking for another one. :D

    Two weeks ago I got some grip puppies from Ton Up. Of course I cut one too short, so after buying a new pair this week, tonight I stole a can of hairspray from my daughter & replaced it in the correct length.

    What, you don't have a daughter? :D

    Exactly what I am thinking now. I did not really buy if for that purpose.
    We had talked about getting a KLR or Weestrom in the future as a GSA junior for trips but I think this will fit nicely.

    :rofl
    Yea the more I think about it, this is a great ladies adventure bike. Light, easy to ride, load it up like a pack mule. I guess it makes sense since it shares some of the beemer 650 single character no offense Alex.

    But twist the throttle and it will not disappoint. That engine just keeps getting better :wings. And that clutch is so nice.
