heard from NotNicky and Louie Q. this afternoon. They're camped out in the otel with Bob C the man and the Smiths (kerrie, you there Jersey girl?). Warm, no rain. They did see a biker 50 miles from Daytona under a trucks tires. Apparently GRUESOME.

Tech was today, so they went through that process.

they rode the drz suzuck's on the beach today. No reports of babes. We'll report later what happens in vintage when I hear about it.

They're there, we're not.

Alright so I won't rub it in too badly, but the weather here is awesome. It was in the mid 70's today at the track with the sun shining. Saw some good races. Roper and Turk were duking it out until Roper crashed (he is sore, but ok). Turk and Henry Syphers went 1 2 in that race (I think it was the 250 race). Good racing today, and looking forward to more tomorrow.

I went out to dinner with the rents and some friends including Steve D. He ordered his whole meal with a gay accent. He did that way too well and had us all rolling on the floor. Typical Steve. Wish you all were here!!:)

Phil has crashed and has been sent to Halifax. Roper apparently is taking a break today and Jonathen White is running his Aer350. Syphers was leading with Jonathan in tow when I got off the phone.

Just to update......Turk is ok, but very sore. Nothing broken though which is good. Henry got a 2nd in the race which was awesome. Overall it was a good showing for the USCRA group!

And to let you all know, it was cold today. It was 60 with 15mph breezes. Brrrr

Aaron,
My CB550 forks have 190cc (6.5 oz) of oil, I also have a note showing that 550/4 forks use 160cc....so who knows.

Glad to hear Turk is okay. The man is just not afraid of falling down. Impressive showing.

Last time I ran a vintage Honda I ran one fork with no oil. Handled great.

Branson, thanks a bunch.

After looking it up 500/550 four forks run 160-165 and cb500t forks run 180. I have no clue what run 190 but it seems to be working for you. I switched from 20w to 30w and think I will like the change in the Honda.
