September Event
« on: September 15, 2011, 01:41:14 PM »
Heading up to Limestone. Left at 0530 from Long Island. No traffic to speak of. We are just north of Bangor on I-95. This trip it is my nephew Joe with his turbo 750 Buell. He also brought along my brother Tom-s XB9 to test.  Bike Tech looks a little thin but I have some talented people helping out so it should go well.  Supposed to get cold overnight - mid 30-s.

Joe, those overnight 30-degree temps are great.  They keep the mosquitoes under control.

Slim, I was thinking that we will experience UP weather this weekend ... Charles, we will miss you. It is too long a haul unless the machine is perfect and ready.

It's not looking too good for us right now...first, serious fuel injection issues, then I cracked my $2500 carbon fiber rear rim, and the "good" oem front rim turns out to be bent. Other than that, things are looking great!  

We're going to sleep on it and decide in the morning...

there is not a big pre registration so this will be a good opportunity to get a lot of runs in dense cold air ... and there are 2 bikes there when we left at 6

Do I see the rain has been falling?  That's not what we want to hear.  Start doing your "Don't Rain" dance, Joe.  Best wishes to all, and to all -- maybe some gentle warm winds. . . :-)

Joe, if you need help with bike tech please dont be afraid to ask me tomorrow. I will be there early to hopefully get though tech without issues and after that if you need me, by all means just say so! You have been a big help to me through out this process and it is the least I could do.
