My bike's list to Santa.

Dear Santa,

Here is a list of what I want for christmas.
1. Fresh engine from Upchuch
2. New Woodcraft rearsets
3. Quick turn throttle.
4. Quick shifter
5. New race plastics, Panted by Tony Ta.

I think that this is a good start. I plan on getting ready for next year and hope that I can manage all of this in the off season.

What are your plans for your bike this winter?

Change brake fluid
Have a competent mechanic check the bike over for things I missed
Maybe a Go Pro?

, I am happy just to have a bike, and be able to ride ALL year. Where I grew up in Colorado we switched to Ski-Doos first big snow, and the bikes sat until sometime in April.

That actually sounds pretty awesome.
I've only seen REAL snow once in my lifetime.
Plus I can only imagine the summer riding in Colorado has to be 10 times better up there.

shining up the forks,
addressing the oil leak,
fixing the kick stand (currently is held up by a bungee cord)
wishful thinking but fresh paint on the tins.

for the sportbike I probably wont be able to do anythign but will ask santa for plastics for the track
