Front forks - 5 minutes to install
Wheels - 25 minutes to install
Safety wire the bike - 15 minutes
Put race plastics on - 5 minutes

Racing in the rain at ECR - Is not usually priceless.

That track is slippery when wet, especially T8. If by tonight the weather is still showing 40% rain for Sunday, I am not going.

I hope not, I usually don't do rain... If it does maybe I'll just putt around for the points.

On a serious note, Tony. Talk with someone to show you the line at the track. That track is awesome but, rather technical. The section between 7, 8 & 9 can bite you in the if not done properly, ask Andy Galindo.

Chaun Goin has some videos on youtube that you could check out. I think Brandt posted one too from the latest mock race at a Ride Smart day.
