well just got back the other day from 7 days in ocotillo wells. it was a great trip. loved getting that much seat time right after gettin this bike. and having the suspension fully done and tested by racetech a day before i left. the bike will be going down to let them finish testing and so i can get some more goodies from them. they put on the extra large blatter on the back and gold valves all around on comp and reb. front rear pretty much everything they offer. the first day out there was pretty much set up and party/relax. 2nd day was the real riding and right when we started i forgot the tires where at 12.5 from the track and got a flat in a rock flat high speed corner and washed out bent my levers and rad. after that i rode back and straightened everything out. oh yea thanks to my pro taper throttle tube for being on or id be buying a new one. and the rest of the trip was cool until our last ride on friday we where over on the other side of the s22 and we where in the jeep haven area riding the tight burns back there and my buddy rob didnt know i was gonna make the move to pass him and he went up high to square up this sandy up hill burm and we hit each other about mid of 3rd. it was some funny ****. all these jeepers where laughing at us. i cant say enough how much i love this new bike. rad braces are going on asap. it like to tweak them back when you fall and i think im gonnaweld the end tanks to the cores that stiffens them up alittle. all my buddys are racers or x racers and they are all impressed aswell. will post up pics. dont have any of the jumps buddy lost the cam on the ride home. so if anyone was out in oc last week and found a cam hit me up.and about the starting i got it down too one clean out med kick to a full slow med and shes goin.
