Dude, you'll be in the running for memorial day weekend now, right? Assuming caz doesn't come with a nos one...

Had it last year, actually, and intended to enter in the Labor Day event to attempt to dethrone John (2014's champ), but I ended up working corners that day. ShagzWife didn't take it out in my absence. :( Caz ran away with the title by a country mile anyway. :lol:

We probably won't be at the Labor Day event at Blackhawk this year due to a conflicting race round, unfortunately, so I may not be able to explore the full potential of my 50ccs of fury until next year.

Oooo, bummer. With races that weekend will our show be significant? May rethink going and choose a different weekend.

The only ones I know that are for sure opting for Gingerman instead of that Blackhawk weekend are ShagzWife & me, since we're both intending to chase some points this year. No idea what anyone else's plans are, but I know at least a few folks around here have already been talking about MotoVid/Blackhawk that weekend. :dunno:

I'm pretty disappointed about the conflict, honestly. :thumbdown: If I had been able to go to Gingerman last year I'd do Blackhawk Sat then go race at Gingerman Sun, but I'm going to want Saturday's practice day to learn the track.

Despite the nice weather I still haven't ridden any yet...aside from a couple scooter runs down to Hy-Vee. :lol:

I ordered more parts. Nothing like the last minute. A few of us may go to gingerman too instead of BHf

I got the throttle on the 1000rr operating as it should, replaced the right side rearset, different color than the left, but that adds character. Bike is running good, no leaks of any kind that I can see. Now I just need to get some race bodywork.

I know each sticker adds 5hp. What do different colored rearsets add? 20?
