I can't help but think that such a svelte bike could benefit from a pilot with a little less frontal area... :wiggle

Probably slower

Oh, for sure. I was hinting more in the 'looks' department.

So, the end of the season is upon us. We ran it in the 5 hour endurance race and did ok, 4th in class (8th overall). More importantly we had a ball beating up on it. The plan is to swap out my motors and tear this one down and check her condition. Aside from the endurance race she has a full season of club racing, two track days and 3 MotoAmerica races on it. Curious to see how it held up inside. It still pulls strong, sounds good, no smoke even on start up, uses no oil, w/very little blow back in airbox.

Hoonen down the front straight,

Meet team Odd Couple. That'd be Chris on my left and Chris on my right...

See y'all in the off season upgrade section of the local supermarket.

Chris had a GPS tracker on his phone in the pocket of his suit. I'm not claiming anything, just gonna leave this here,

Off season shenanigans somewhat curtailed by emergency drilling a new well, new softener, new plumbing, new pressure tank, new water heater, new, new...fuck...

Anyway, I did sneak it apart during all the con(de)struction,

Both motors checked out solid after leak down tests

So the spare motor is getting the top end done by Zoran @ TWF

It already had Web cams in it but will get ported and a fresh valve job. When done it'll be the same as this year's beast.

Was hoping to do rods, pistons and an undercut tranny too but will be lucky to get a slipper clutch. Oh well, C'est la vie.
