    I recommend going to Gateway Raceway in beautiful downtown Madison(East St. Louis), IL After a few track days there, you will learn to appreciate every other track in the nation 🏁

    Danke danke. Since you guys like pics, and videos are just a bunch of those lined up, here's some fodder. I literally almost died and can't even. Death from above. Construction workers laid a booby trap.

    Finally got around to replacing swing arm ($50 used) so that I have rear stand spools, since one of the brackets 'broke'. Got new chain ($50) and borrowed Todd's (who's he right?) Chain breaker/riveter. Had to buy special tool ($18 + 3 weeks from China) to remove pivot 'nut', which any one can borrow it you ever need; different than the one used on a Kawasaki - mine would work on kaw but not the other way around. Took about 4 hours. Not too bad.

    Gave my boss a V-day gift - a resignation letter; starting a new job in a few weeks... she asked if there was anything she could do to get me to stay, Barry White music started playing... she smiled coyly and brushed the papers across her desk.... or that was just a movie I saw once in college. and I gave my bike a V-day gift... Looking forward to doing a couple of weekend trips this year now that I'll have the luggage to carry all my crap.

    I'm thinking of doing Putnam too. I heard mcra not going so I guess it's with Jeff.

    Putnam is nice because it isn’t super technical and is easy to learn.

    I've been watching past races to get my fix. The Sepang test is the 6th,7th & 8th of this month. I'm really excited to see and hear a group of the new Triumph 765's. The new RC213V looks like the size of a 600

    I knew you were faster than me! That is a 12 minute mile pace. I am still doing what I call the old man shuffle of 14 minute pace. I may get a bit faster if I keep this up, but doubt I can do 12 minutes.

    Right on. I still need to get the bike put back together and let my ankle heal up (broke it on the drop in that video above), but I'm definitely down for a ride.

    Thanks for the welcomes. I don't take a lot of pics, but here are the current two wheeled members of the fleet. Nothing too impressive, but I will say, after owning a dozen or so bikes, most bigger and faster, it's hard to beat a little TW for a fun/purity of riding factor. It's just a happy little place to be, even if you do get made fun of by the chopper gangs. As for what kind of riding I like to do, I'm down for pretty much anything. Highway is out until something larger sneaks into the garage, but I prefer back roads anyway. My usual outings are just an hour or two, backroads up and down the Meramec, with the occasional veer off into some woods or dirt if the situation presents itself.

    Did Just get exhaust delivered on Christmas Eve that was a nice gift, but I have done no gearing changes or anything to the motors. I do make sprocket changes depending on conditions I am riding in. This Z only has 200 miles on it now. The other one has 4500:)

    Let the “Z2” projects begin! I have ordered many things but for now I have new factory panels to install so I can remove and preserve the Kenny Roberts sr and jr autographs.Tail eliminator kit and integrated rear light is what I will also start with.
