I'll be there but will do the usual one day solo ironman - all in a day

I hope to have a full day with no mechanical issues. The last 2 rounds have drove me batty. I think I've got a finger on it this time (ya riiiigggghhhtt)

See everyone there!

Yikes!! That looks like a Tijuana bore job there.

I had not installed the rear timing chain guide/tensioner correctly which was creating a lot of noise.

That and my head bolts were not torqued correctly causing a premature head gasket failure.

I assembled the motor last night with success. I'll be installing the motor in the chasis tonight so I have time to sort any other issues that may arise.

I'm really looking forward to a full day of racing with no mechanical issues that is for sure...

well, the wife is asking who I am riding with, or who is riding with me...
she does not want me to go by myself...
who is open and wants a rider, or who needs a ride?
I need to make a decision on going and getting a room.
