Looking real good at this point.  A few little changes and some dyno time is all I need to be ready.  May go catch MIROCK at Budds Creek this coming weekend for a little inspiration for future changes.

Chomping at the bit. I'm making a few small changes and hope to tack on a few mph.

Been putting out fertilizer on the paddocks instead of here, taking care of Leslie after a bit of oral surgery (she's fine--started reminding me how to do things like breath, etc. yesterday), and got no fast thingies. The Triumph is in the shop getting things done that most of you do for yourselves, such as changing the air in the tires. Got some good news and some bad. There's a Triumph dealer in town again, but it's the Harley dealer. Later

My goal was the April meet. . . .so much for goal setting. . .been doing a lot of work on the car but it seems everything I do takes twice as long as expected and when done with one thing I see five more things that I had not considered. . . one good outcome to this build is that I find that laying on concrete for extended periods of time has helped with my back pain . . . the engine is mounted and the drive train needs only a few more brackets and other little things . . ordering new axles this week . . .  In short, don't expect me to be there in May.  Started on the wiring last week. . . boldly going where I have never been before . . . . Maybe June??

It will be down to the wire.  Hopefully the 10 will be finished for a Production run.  The 6 is killing us.  Cylinders are back off and being stripped and coated.  We have been working day and night for May after missing Miami, Texas any April maxton.  What a start to the year.  Hope we see everyone there.

Anybody got a clutch and pressure plate for a Mitsubishi Truck with a Starion Flywheel? The May meet is becoming endangered...

Nancy and I will be there -- with the ZX12R (again).  This time it'll still be naked -- but we might spray a little bit to see what happens :evil:

We'll arrive, as usual, Thursday evening, and be at the track Friday through Sunday.  I'll be inspecting bikes, Nancy inspects riders' safety garb and installs 2010 helmet stickers.

I'll try to take and post more photos this time, too.

The Buzz Bomb is in the Shop and the N2O is going in.  A bit here and a bit there......  Anybody have some little bitty nitrous jets - like #18 NOS?  I just want a LITTLE spray on a stock bottom end.

Dan:

As long as you're online -- Nancy and I plan to be at Maxton as usual, arriving Thursday and available to work Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  I'll inspect bikes, Nancy inspects leathers and such, and she also enjoyw working at records/timing slips if needed.

We'll see you then.  Maybe going to spray the bike motor, too.
