That is one nice video that gives me a big smile.  Brings back memories from warm and distant days when I thrashed the life out of my 305 superhawk.  No wobbles in the corners!

People say is is hot where you are.  Here is a picture to look at to cool you down.  A "tit stiffener of a day" as we say here.  Stay safe.
Now were even Bo. your "cool" pic gave me a long awaited cool change, glad the megga rev video link worked to warm you up.

To Sam and All.......YES smiley smiley smiley smiley

My team is ready and we are now preparing the new motor and adding some partial streamlining to the Triumph Cub. I am always on a tight budget and did not have the new motor ready, so we skipped last year. I hope to begin posting some updates in a few weeks.

Oh Tiny Noooooooooo!  I am so sorry to hear that.  I was really rooting for you with that way cool Honda 250.  I wish I was closer so I could come look at it with you after the meet to do an autopsy.  Thanks for the video post.  Awesome sounding 250cc engine until the extra noises started.

I think I may have had a crater in #4 piston before I left home,,from when I burned a plug earth strap during a sorting run, making that piston the sacrificial lamb ?
I sort of hope there will be a hole in 2 or 3 as well when I pull the head (Dodge near impossible to get those plugs out) , although it is not running lean,,it gets a failrly hot thing happening in the combustion chamber.
Although I have an EGT gauge , i decided not to fit it to the bike,,'cos they slow you down,,lol
