I should be camped out in Sleepy Bear's in Lumberton tomorrow night then will figure out how to relocate two vehicles and a trailer Thursday am to the track.  I will probably run the jeep over drop the trailer then come back and tow the jeep in behind the rv.  I don't think the cops would appreciate me towing the jeep and the bike trailer behind the rv at the same time!   :evil:

It has been a busy week. Got done safety wiring the bike (I have 5 feet of space between my Duster and the garage wall to work on the bike!!). I dont have a safety wire plier, so had to crew chief it and hand wire it all. I hope tech isnt stiff on how its attached. A few of the hose clamps didnt have anything close to wire to so they got wired to themselves or the hose clamp next to it. I also wired the caps to the reseviors. I am curious if my lowering links have to have the jam nuts wired, bringing the drill and bits just in case.

My fingers are crossed for my suit, I had Amanda at Speedsport turn a 2 piece into a 1 piece, and replace all of the strech panels with leather. The suit still has the pockets on the front and the vent inlets on the shoulders (hard plastic double stiched into the leather.)

It has been an adventure up to this point, and the fun is about the start, I cant wait for all of this hard work to pay off.

Borrowed a buddies blazer and trailer, will be packing up tomorrow morning and hitting the road. See you on the road for whoever is taking I-95 down from Dirty Jersey.

Mike and myself are here in Laurinburg with the little evo2, we forgot how little happens here.  Anyone else in town now doing anything tonight?  We may head over to Champ's sports bar for drinks later.
