    I thought it might be... VF1000R before the VFR?

    You'll never have to ask "Whatcha doin today" if ya buy a pick up and trailer. Now my week ends are filled with the joys of moving other peoples shit. They're smart too, they ask "her" cuz she's way less likely to say no. Hope I'm chalkin up some karma er sumthin.
    If you can't pick it back up, don't ride it.

    Collecting sensors and stuff for the dash on the aprilia project. Here's an oil pressure gauge hook up at the old oil pressure switch location. It's the spot where the braided line comes from.

    This weekend, I learned that if you don't know what you are doing setting up geometry and suspension, you can really pour money right down the drain...

    Interesting story, if you are into geometry and suspension settings.
    I was at the track this weekend and completely ruined a new pirelli supercorsa sp rear in one day one a 750.
    Long story short, the changes I made to run a swingarm angle I thought was correct, ended up shifting too much weight from the rear. I think the rear suffered from a severe cold tear that I didn't pick up until too late and the tire is pretty much toast.

    I’m interested in geometry and suspension settings, but my “race tires” wouldn’t do that because they are from the dark ages and petrified. Plus I can’t imagine how something that sticky would work with girder forks or a plunger frame.

    I did learn a bit from watching this... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Cqq5dEiADJY

    Waiting for the sun to come out so I will be able to thaw out my nuts after I resurface from scraping barnacles.
