It's not going to be too bad I hope. Maybe there will be a breeze, and I'll have a fan. And I'm single, so there won't be any extra body heat in there with me.

I think my big concern is leaving my stuff in my truck while I'm CWing. I'll try to put most of it in my truck, but some things just won't fit, or can't go in there (gas). I'm afraid that somebody might get sticky fingers or something. :BangHead:

You don't have to worry about gas cans and stuff like that. Just don't leave any Gold bars laying around. :icon_bigg

"CW"ing = Corner Working

That's something you wouldn't know about Bill.. , you dont even see the corners, you just wheelie thru them.

It's called Bill, make you feel like you're 18 again. you act it, might as well feel it..............

Carbon...... better bring more than a set of pads and a bit of late brake.
If all goes well this weekend I should have Woody ready for a return to MSRH, with a few new tricks inside the fairings!! Supposed to make near 120HP after Jimmy's magic. I don't think many of you have met Woody yet.

Ah braking is easy...wait until the you think you are going to run off the track and then pull hard till the back wheel comes off the ground until you almost loop it forward then let off a little while you are swinging the back end around to set up you up for the corner then gas it. See easy. :icon_bigg Don't sweat it carbon you were looking really good Saturday.

Buck, I am not worried about my woodie that is ok it is the sore thing I can't handle anymore. Btw already tried which is like nitrous you don't really need it but it sure is fun to hit the button.
