Run me off? I'm pretty sure we've already hit each other in turns. if you want to run me off, good luck because we're both going down. and i dont have a problem with it. just hope you dont lose your memory like last time

I'm going to do a couple Cs, may throw in a B too. We'll see how my knee feels.
I doubt I'll be setting any PBs, but fun will be had. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Knee replacement 10 days after. Yikes!.

, maybe the suit will help kinda keep things together? i remember i lowsided my grom doing stupid stuff a few days before the race and i didnt have full motion and it hurt during a trackday but it felt fine when my tracks suit was on

also i was talking to another expert racer the other day and he said he raced with a broken collar bone but it didnt feel bad when he was on the bike with his suit lol

Haven't had a chance to tear into it yet. It appears to be something high up as it did not leak much while sitting overnight. It appears to leak when it builds pressure, I'm thinking maybe slave cylinder / push rod seal (hopefully, since I've already done this once on the old zx7 I had).

VERY WELL could be as simple as a loose oil filter as well (just had a 3rd party do an oil change recently within the last 35-50 miles). Hope to tear into in the next few days to determine where it's coming from....should not be hard once I get the fairings off as it's leaking pretty bad when the motor is running at higher rpms.

Yeah, you still talk a lot on the internet even after a couple years. We'll see what goes down on race day. Bet if it starts raining you'll be the first one to pack up and go home (as usual)

but enough chit chat on the forums, you can find me at the track

What are you talking about? First one to pack up...? I've NEVER packed my up and left, ever. So I'm curious as to what you're referring to.

I missed the first round this year due to blowing a motor a week before the race...

Make sure to come see me this weekend @ TWS (Texas World Speedway). Don't be shy either.
