Cool Track and Back

Just thought I would share "MONKEYBOBS" history with you guys.
Bought almost new 500 mile demo 8K out the door 2004

Step one disassemble and familiarize myself with him.

Step two satos and dyno tune the blubbering fuel delivery.... EXTRAP are you listening ?

Doug Lofgren one of the best tuners anywhere

Step three suspension...
First go around was reworked forks and ohlins sprung for 220 with the DK link

Might as well pop on "STUNNAS" nicky swinger !

Guys I am gonna work on this post as time allows so un-subscribe if the e-mails get old.

Exclamation Central Roadracing Association

These people have been doing this club racing thing for 30+ years

What can I say they are all volunteers and run a super club

First Race

Third place finish in 38 degree rain (the leaders had full rain tires)
the pilot powers and perfect throttle control the RC tiptoed beautifully

Second Race dry holeshot and I went into preservation mode and decided this RC is too nice for the abuse 8th place.

Third race my instructor advised me to wear ear plugs and I hammered the quick shifter and yielded a jumpy third gear.

At this point the bike is done racing and way too nice to be wearing ratty clothes

So that about sums it-up Ten years of fun and I HATE street riding.

That Gratton track you speak of is 20mins away from me.
Ever been to Gingerman raceway? Love that track. Pretty close to that one too

No Novels!

Fricken GOLD battery!
