Scott,

If you need a "fancy" kill switch then I can get you one delivered to El Mo for $60.00, how many do you want??

Scott, If you need a kill switch I've got a new that I'm not going to use.  Cost me $5.  I'll bring it with me.
Get off the stove Grandad.  You're too old to be riding the range.

John - Thanks, but I am already broke and this weekend sure isn't going to help, however like a junkie needing a fix I will be there one way or another.....even more broke. Is it a mps type switch? maybe I could buy one from you later when funds are a little better.

Norton, I would like to take a look at what you have maybe it's better than mine.

A very special thanks to all for making my first race a great one!!!

I ended up getting a puncture to my rear tire on my second run on Saturday, so I cut out early. I'll be back next meet with spares.

I look forward to seeing you guys again in June!

If you have the need for any Busa parts during (or before / after) an event let me know as I have several sets of rims/tires and this meet I had two complete spare sets with me..

Good luck at the next event!

Still working on the safety wire (broken drill bit), but other than that, the bike is ready to go with special thanks to V8Pinto for the battery tie down idea.
That'll be great, I'll have to stop by and chat. I'm so new to this form of racing, that I would definately appreciate hearing some tips and war stories from experienced racers.
I'll be rolling in the U-Haul special with my wife driving the Honda Civic "Support" vehicle.  :-D

I think I spoke with you as I was heading out (Sunday around 10am).  You said the bike was running good.

Did you get your C license squared away Sunday?

I know, I thought about that after the fact. It's unexpected how nice everyone is here. I'll keep that in mind for future races because let's face it - the part that breaks will always be the one you don't have a spare for.  :-)

No, I was gone Saturday night. That was probably Mark, a teammate in the Roadrunners club, he also rides a blue/silver Busa. I still have one more run to complete my C license.

So how did you run Shane? I got to see you first run Saturday. That new exhaust sounds awesome! A Lot less raspy than I would have expected.
