I can sweep the noob ride on 3090.

Yeah that was my concern on 3090 with a moderate group.

Jimrad, Will you cut through 362 or straight down 290 to 6?

If anyone does wanna take a NOOB ride with a step up if everyone's comfortable on the way back say so here:



1. Oldschool


If so we can meet up at 8am at Bucees on 290
meeting at 8:15
roll out after meeting.

At their pace we should get to yankees about the same time.

Also you don't have to be a newer rider to want to ride a Cruiser pace.
I would avoid 3090 for the noobs. Even at pace those turns will catch a noob off guard. You all are asking for it. I don't want to seem like a downer..but I know experienced riders who struggle with that road. Its fun, but they may go back and then try to hit it and crash.. Be careful either way!!

Well it went in for a rear suspension upgrade and a free drivetrain rebuild I won from Tony's drawing. So the upgrade list looks something as follows which I think I posted already.

-520 Chain/Sprockets 14/40
-Racetech Springs .90kg/mm with R/T emulators
-06 Zx-10 shock (Turns out they are presprung for 200 so itll be plenty stiff for now and I weigh that much)
-BT003RS Tires on my rims for the track (Having my Pilot Powers put on other rims for street duty)
-New Rectifier since mine went out and was causing the battery to go dead.

Think that covers this go round... and actually probably most of the upgrades that will ever need to be done to it except consumables - oil, filters, brakepads and Paint and Track fairings when I finally save enough for a street queen again.
