Go back, especially if he is that close.

Don't feel uncomfortable, you're paying for good mechanical work, not a feel good about yourself reassurance session.

"Rebuild" is such a "big" word.

May not be quite that bad. Spoke to Brandon last week, waiting for a final update.

Not sure if I'll make GSS, but that's what I am hoping for. If not, I'll be on the 10 in Intermediate.

Andy has done some good work for me too. As far as re-springing your suspension on the 426, these are almost too easy to do on your own. Find the spring rate from race tech, buy the springs, twist off a cap from the tube, twist off the cap inner rod, pull spring, replace spring, install cap, install cap. If that's not basically the exact process, it is pretty close. It would be a good time to swap fork oil too.

of course valving it, and setting it up for yourself gets more tricky. I personally can suggest Andy too. He's done work for me, and I will use him again for machining and things that I feel that I am not capable of doing.

WHY I LOVE MY MOTARD
by Tojo92 AKA Mongo

I love me some motard. Some say it is a fad, but not me. Why? Because unlike other motormocycles, my motard is always there for me (when it's not in the shop). I can ride my motard as if I have zero ability to control a two wheeled vehicle (I don't) and when I almost crash, but don't...I can pretend I did it on purpose and look cool (in my mind). My motard (or friend's motard)crashes sometimes (bad motard), but I can always pick it up (unless I am laying a ditch full of 38 degree ditch water with a bad ankle on 3090 in January) and keep riding as if nothing happened. My motard is fast (too me) and makes loud noises that make me giggle out loud in my helmet (crash helmet?...Oh I hope not).

When I have a bad day, I can go into the garage and spend time looking at my motard (if not in the shop, see above) and share a beer with it. It doesn't drink beer silly, so I drink the one I brought out for it as well. For some reason, this makes me happier than drinking with friends that use big words and talk about injuneering stuff that affects motomocycles. I don't care about that stuff, I just ride my motomocycle because it makes me smile and feel funny inside. It makes you feel like this...

images?qtbnANd9GcQrKWIfIRkVid1HxoracEuMWw ZE 0RXHVeBBE1v6P8whK Y5Fv&ampt1

even when really you look more like this...

Nicest People 1

My motard is my speshul friend, I love it so. You should get a motard too!
