Looking at maybe April 16 or 17 (after the MotoGP weekend at COTA).  Any takers?  Any particular ride route preferences?

Better get the riding in before it's 110 degrees… Jus' sayin'  Grin

sure, lets go.  I'm open to any ride that doesn't involve too many straights but I'm leaning towards Muenster for some fast sweepers, we can run it twice and then head home.

It's too soon for me to tell yet. Obviously if I get some "honey-dos" done between now and then I'll be in.

I swear to God Cher, if you don't get some information up soon I am going to start your own bike mod thread for you and gripe until you prove something!  chug

So!  Let's talk biddness - April 16th or 17th is two weekends away.  I'd do an all-day Muenster ride for anyone that's up for it; stop in Muenster for lunch; buzz cruise the bridge over the Red River, and be back to the metro-mess well before dark. 

Does anyone feel like they can commit for Saturday OR Sunday, April 16th OR 17th?  It doesn't matter to me.  Hell, I'd ride both days  Evil  Let's just get it on the calendar.

Now I know there will be some folks out there who will want to show off some new rides so don't forget - we're a motley lot of non-demoninational hooligans… especially Muscrat  Grin

Well, you are correct!  I was counting this weekend and the 9th/10th weekend. 




We still need a consensus on whether the ride is Saturday, April the 16th or Sunday the 17th.  I'm leaning towards Saturday the 16th.

Why yes, yes it is.  Come to find out it was running on one cylinder almost all of the time  Shocked  AMS replaced the crankshaft position sensor and a really clogged vertical fuel injector.  Add to that the main ground for the entire electrical system on the R bike was always a bit suspect so that was re-doubled.

Plus, Jordan found a couple of crap clutch disks and a leaking seal behind the clutch pack... Oil leak on clutch parts, never a good thing.  I'm sure the bike sitting around for ten years as a garage queen really did it no favors whatsoever.

Anyway, the ride home scared the livin' @*&%$# out of me so, all is well, thank you very much  Evil

Bottom line is: I'm Sweep on group rides from now on  Grin

Criminy! That things has to be a TON different now!! I love the pictures, especially the first one; most definitely a BAD ASS!

You are one fortunate bastard (meant in the best way possible of course!)

HA!  Thanks...  But that's MS. Bastard to you, thank you very much.

Oh, and the other even more cool thing about all of the recent work, Jordan re-tuned the ECU to better match the characteristics of the new L.V. pipe so that the bike could… wait for it… make more power  Shocked
