Boom!

Crash in P1. Pulled the threads outta the brake calipers swapping tires, great. Qualified in 20th in a field of 22. Dropped 3 seconds in the race. Tony tried a bold pass for 13th in the chicane on the last lap and ran off losing 2 spots to finish in 16th.

The Suzuki guy lurking around here finished 12th after a crash and restart from the back.

Not a bad showing for the CRA!

Looking at the time slips revealed my modified stock airbox motor was making 127mph at the trap, a tie for second fastest. Take that AP motor runners! Same traps as Madama and Roth and 2 down on Wang with 129. A Yamaha lock on that, now if the Suzuki's would move over and let us by.

I had to follow Tony for more time than I wanted to, can confirm the motor pulls strong!

Last dance of 2018 post. We made it thru another season. Saturday's sprint races, a beautiful but chilli day. Pirelli rep delivers tires and can race like Rossi but can't go 50 feet on a scooter w/o wiping out, lol.

The 2019 season starts today. I know Mr and Mrs Suzuki are already planning our demise so thought I'd get a move on. I have a few projects to bloggerate about so here goes.

First I made some room to work in the shop,

Then we blew it apart and parked it in a corner to patch and paint the glass. That tail section is bugging me too. I just may cut that off, dowel it and make a removable gp tail section for it. We'll see.

Body work stripped of stickers and graphics,

Next up getting after some of Anthony's pittrace modifications. Not too worried about a Concours finish since it's a race bike not a show bike. Sharkskinz is now doing bodywork and selling it a la carte too.

Forks ready to go away for a refresh, shock was done mid-season so it's good yet,

Then there's the matter of that spare motor, hmmm...
