a response edited so many times HAD to be good.
the newsletter is just the results, I got mine today.
in FCB the guy who took third in points entered only one race, frontierland, and won. Had he not entered the 3rd place spot would have to anyone with 4 points... as in just show up for all 4 races and you get 3rd overall.
yeppers! i must say it is even better in person. funny that this is the first thread i read today as the brake has been sitting on my desk and i was just admiring it while waiting for the computer to fire up. casey saw it for the first time yesterday and remarked how pretty it was. more surprisingly was that she stuck around during my story about it and her eyes didn't glaze over when i removed the backing plate to show and explain the work done inside.
christmas came early this year for texy. thanks again john. the check is in the mail (has been for a few days), so if you don't have it yet, keep looking.
I'll hide some up my butt so I don't forget them and give them to you the next time I see you....they'll be "special" by then.
BTW... I think the OEM CB160 brake is the best made brake Honda ever produced. Not the strongest or the fanciest. But they are "right". Put the backing plate on a lathe and fire it up...runs truer than any OEM brake I've ever done. Shoes are very square with the drum/plate, Pivot bores are very true.
With most brakes I have to work down .020" just to get the shoes squared up, CB160's that's about .005".
Anyway...just rambling...too bad they didn't make it 20mm larger. The 305/450 are very good...but the tolerances are not as good as a CB160 in my opinion.
April 15. Rain or shine. I remember some tax days where I've ridden on my bike in a t-shirt to the post office. I also remember some tax days shoveling snow so I could get out of my driveway to get to the post office.
4-15-08, Don't count on it yet. This was one of the last things I did for the club before retiring as a volunteer. I would wait until you hear it for sure from Bob Coy. I would also suggest that if anybody has questions or concerns regarding the USCRA contact Bob C. for verification on events or anything else pertaining to the club.
looking forward to my newsletter. going to send some content his way for the next issue, glad vilie's the editor...he corrects my spelling without editing my thoughts. huh? thanks scott, merry hoho.
