So Cal Gray & Drizzle

These misty moist gray days we’ve been having makes me jones for a visit to the Lake Elsinore track. The dirt there is always so good on these kind of days, however there’s no in between it’s either sun baked blue groove or sticky ton of traction fun, the kind of fun that makes you have push your bike back to the truck for a fill up so you can get back out there.

Here’s to ya Blair.

Always good to see you man, come around more often.

Pleasant Weekend.

Pat & I busted our asses on the tank/mounting for the ERWN SR500 last week and we’re 75%  done so we left it alone for the weekend and I took the opportunity dust off my FL project and put a little time in on it. People came and went, worked on bikes, traded off riding every ones bikes, Bob & my girl Frances cranked out a quick but delicious BBQ, I forgot about the internet until a few minuets ago, All & all a great few days.

RWN SR500 update

With two weeks in a row of Arizona travel and having to make some real mortgage paying dollars the progress on the RWN SR500 was slowed but not for long. I hit it hard over the past few days and got a bunch of the details out of the way & of course I got carried away with a front brake line guide that I ended up spending hours carving out of a chunk of aluminum, tapped the triple clamp and put a hidden pin in the back so it won’t swivel.
I also made up & mounted the underseat plate that holds all the electrical crap,  key switch plate and finished seat pan & fender mounts.
Tomorrow  Pat & I are going to work the tank, tank mounts & hopefully have it all finished in a couple days and then it’s tear down, paint polish and plating.

Good interview with my friend Scott Towne over at the In The Gnar site.
Scott’s one those good guys I don’t get to hang out with nearly enough.
