Thanks Scott.  Had I known the bike shootout was going to happen I would have found a way to meet and see your little monster. Too late now, though. I'm probably going to run BMST next year so I may be contacting you about pushing the bodywork rule limitations.   cheers

Good luck out there!

Beautiful bike. I feel your pain making the body work. You are far more patient than I am Smiley

Did you make some fun runs out there at least?

Well, with nothing going on, I'll probably be putting the race bike in some motorcycle shows in the off season.

I'd like to have a sign by the bike telling people of the plight of the Bonneville Salt Flats.  Please help me decide what it should say.

Mike, let me know if you find some shows you want to put it in. I can bring mine down too so there could be another bike to go with the display.

NICE...............Great Sign.  I've been to my local GATHERING ON THE GREEN show with the Road America crowd...........quite a few commented on the salt conditions.

Looky here.

Probably see you tomorrow, WW.  Did you meet George?  Gabe (Basement born) will be there tomorrow, too.  I'll stop by.

That's the first time I've seen "myself" on the bike.  That's not the correct speed hump but I can still tell the area above my butt needs some aero changes.  I might raise the front of the tail section high enough that a different speed hump could make a nice shape from the front fairing all the way to the tail.

George McMurray (TriMac Speedsters) provided the sign.

Here's George and "SuperFly".

Sofa, my truck is up on blocks with the wheels off.  Yesterday Rose let me use her truck.  She is using it today so I will not be at the show.  It would be nice to meet all of you.

Since the odds of running at Bonneville are about as good as winning today's $900,000,000 ( shocked) lottery, I've been prepping the bike for shorter venues by losing some bike weight.  Hopefully I'll be able to run at Elmo or at least the Mojave Mile.  Both are still a long way to go for 1 or 2 day events.  I can only take vacation time in one week blocks so I have to use 2 weeks vacation just for a weekend event.  sad   If  Loring becomes a 5 day event and the FIM guys are going to be there, I'd consider the 6600 mile drive and blowing 3 weeks time off.

I can't wait for the NW Reunion in Feb. to see which way the LSR wind is blowing.

We spent a month getting situated in our new shop.  It's 50% larger (still too small) with plenty of available power, much better lighting and heat!  grin grin grin. We now have a pretty nice little shop (for a couple of hobbyist hacks) with a lathe, small milling machine, nice big drill press, vertical belt & disc sander, multiple bench grinders, TIG welder, a bike lift, a bike stand and boatloads of hand tools.  What could possibly go wrong here?   evil

Over the last few weekends I widened the frame and lowered the engine (to where it was supposed to be) which necessitated a new shift lever position. I put a bell crank in the new linkage to avoid having to shift backwards.  I cut 4" from my cooling tank so I can run it lengthwise (less drag and less weight) and will get that mounted tomorrow.  The smaller cooling tank should be fine for shorter tracks.  Next, I have to cut out and widen the upper frame rails just behind the steering head so I can see better (another example of the welder not doing what I told him to do  angry).  If you want something done right you've got to do it yourself.

That new shop sounds like it has a lot of helpful tools and some people to help you.  We need a warm place to work.

The situation at the BSF has taken some of the wind out of my sails but I'm pressing on.  Iíve put a lot of time into mods lately.  Not real noticeable but big improvements none the less.  My body is only SCTA legal so I've been concentrating on prepping to run only in "open" classes at shorter events.

 Pic 1.  More than doubled the forward viewing area by re-doing the frame behind the steering head.  Now I can see!! (did the whole job while muttering bad things about my previous welder)  Came up with a much better way to shock mount  the tach and exh. temp gauges.  Tore the tach apart to see why the needle was reading intermittently and jumping all over the place.  With a magnifying glass, I  found a tiny piece of the thinnest copper wire Iíve ever seen laying across two solder joints on the circuit card.  Iím hoping that was the problem.

 Pic 2.  Re-doing the frame allowed me to position the gas tank where it was supposed to be Ė between the frame rails (not under them).  Picked up one of the two radiators from a late 90ís Suzuki RM250.  I figure that ought to cool a 125 so I should be OK cooling a 100 (got my fingers crossed on this one).  Itís all aluminum so should be very efficient.

 Pic 3.  Made a heavy duty number plate thatís shock mounted to mount the coil and ignition box on.  Iíve still got space to mount my little Shorei battery in case the radiator needs a cooling fan.

 Pic 4.  Added 12 degrees outward angle to the handlebars.  Before they were almost vertical.  Even though my thumbs are still the minimum distance apart the control should be much better.  A much bigger deal than one might think.
