It was great getting to race.....well slide with you yesterday. It was let's say interesting to watch you go by while laying in the mud with everyone running over me....
Sorry I didn't get to talk to you before I left. I was talking to Randy Hawkins when the pain in my left ankle got really bad and the wife made me get on the road.
How did your buddy do in his class...I know he was still kickin butt when I left....Man that guy is fast...Lane and I watched him blast out of the checkpoint a couple of times.
Lets do it again.....

If you decide to to the Little Brown Jug next month let me know. I was talking with Lane (My Race Partner) and we agreed to swap over the front forks/Tripple Clamp and the Scotts from the WR to the YZ like you and I were talking about....Makes better sense as I can get my feet on the ground with the YZ much better than on the WR. Plus the YZ is faster in the woods. The WR will still make a great back up bike...I don't ever want to have to tear bikes down in the field like that again if I can help it... I guess we'll get stared on it after I take a couple of days off to let the swelling go down on my ankle.
Oh Yeah, Let me know what happens with the tire deal you were telling me about....If the prices are right I'll throw some business your way for sure..

Sorry to butt-in, but you just mentioned a real curiosity to me: I noticed when I climbed aboard my friend's YZF that it seemed, no,it WAS shorter than my WR. No suspension mods on either bike. I liked the feel of his a lot better. What's the deal?

I think creating a hybrid out of the YZ just might be the combination I was looking for in height and power...We'll see.

Keep us posted on your hybrid. Maybe do some before and after measurements? I need to measure from front axle center to the top of the fork cap on mine and a YZF; same for the rear shock eye to eye. I'll gladly swap a little ground clearance (nothing a heavy duty skid plate won't fix) for a more comfortable ride height/kickstarter height. MXTuner would probably know about any spring/suspension differences? I doubt the frames are different.

Sorry I did not make it out, after talking to you I went home and started checking out the bike to get it ready for sunday but my bike did not want to play as I had a big pool of fork oil under it and a rear flat. It sound like you had a good time wish I could have been there. Think I'm going to buy me a new bike as I'm tired of having fork problems it seems like I ride it twice its time to replace the fork seals, maybe I will move over to the dark side I mean 4 stroke side.
