Hoping to run for the first time, with a Honda CB77 running in 350 M-CG. Bike is running, crew already made hotel reservations. Looks like I have no more excuses. Time to get my thumb outta my a**, get registered and get out on the salt!

The 2018 FIM tech regulations have not been posted so I do not know if I can build a legal bike in time for the meet.  That also prevents me from sending in the entry forms.  Right now I am waiting for the rules to be posted so no "chatter."  It is always possible that a rule change could provide me with an issue that I do not have time or money to remedy.

Thanks for the encouragement, folks. @Chris V, my goal is simply to get to Bonneville, get on the salt and keep it upright the whole way to the end. I didn't really choose that class by design, though the low hanging fruit of 62mph didn't exactly drive me away  wink I went as a spectator in 2016, got the fever, looked in the garage when I got home and there was that CB77 basketcase saying "build me". Had a couple of rides on it so far and nothing too important has fallen off yet, so I think I might make it. Look forward to meeting you all. You seem like my kinda people. By the way, should this thread be moved to BMST general chat? Sorry for being anal, I am a moderator of my own SMF based forum.

I have read the rules. I think I'm compliant with the rules so far, save for safety wiring which should be getting done this weekend and taping over the lights. Added a kill switch reachable from the throttle, added a second safety leash kill switch in series, stock frame and motor that's under an .050 overbore, new tires rated for 112mph (I'm guessing I might be able to do 80?), removed passenger pegs, throttle snaps shut, front fender present, seat height pretty much stock, bars only an inch or so lower than stock, pegs within spec distance from rear axle, rebuilt steering damper, no oil leaks. Also have safety gear - two piece suit with full zipper, snell 2010 helmet, gloves, boots, etc. I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions on what else I need to do to pass muster.

DocB, not sure about the BMST, but most organizations require that you have tires that meet the record in that class, not what you think you can do.  If some TZ Yamaha bumped your record to 150, then you have to have tires for that record.

Thanks, good info to keep in mind. The current record is 62 so I guess I'm covered for the moment. Not necessarily in love with the tires I have anyway and I do have some higher rated ones in mind.

I imagine Jon will spot this thread and he will move it if he thinks it needs moving.
