beartooth rally

so i got a call from chris on friday afternoon asking if i wanted to go camping; sure why not. 150 miles east and southeast we find ourselves at a splendid little get-together known as the Beartooth Rally. as far as i could see, there was a minimum of silly "bad-ass wannabes" and a whole lot of nice folks around.   
 once off the super-slab... we may have gone down the wrong road.
 back on track

 ballin'. that blue thing is chris wrapped up in his tarp.
 and the only mechanical failure was a rouge seat spring.

decisions decisions...

my brain hurrrrrts. motor is back from porting, bike is stripped to the frame for paint, exhaust mapping starts saturday, carbon fiber is on order and a 58 hour work week is almost done. in my free time i paruse this garbage: fuel charts

he may not admit to it...

but, there is no doubt in my mind that this is Dylan's dream ride.

sprint cars 101:

first they whip around in a circle

then the inevitable happens and one ends up tits-up in the fence
 at least he walked away.

this was as in-focus as i could get. i fired up the B-side motor in the salt bike this week to test out the carb mods i've been working on. so far so good. the carb is working wonderfully and the cloud of death was concerning the neighbors. i heart 2-strokes.

Operation MOVE

Haven't had much time to post. Spent the last month scrambling to find a new apartment after we jumped the gun and gave our notice without having a new place lined up. I'm finally out of fishy New Beige and livin' la vida low-cash in sunny Hanover. Once I get my ikea furniture assembled correctly I'll be back in the garage. I hate moving.

Warren, if your bearing won't stay in you can lightly peen the bore the bearing presses into and use a little wicking grade loctite. Don't peen it too much though or it will be too tight and the bearing will drag.

going fast is stupid

i have decided that going fast is for losers who stay home on saturday nights. i base this on my last saturday night spent repacking bearings. i wanted to run ceramic considering i apparently know a dude who knows a dude who makes them. but the budget is nothing but an eviscerated, emaciated, decapitated, fenestrated corpse bereft of an resemblance to its former, steadfast manifestation. so the old bearings are being cleaned and repacked with chrysler approved wheel bearing grease. all is well and good except one side resisted extraction and scored the seat. a consultation was held with the machinist at work. i imagined my hub chalked up in the lathe being trimmed back to pristine goodness. to my surprise he suggested that i lay off the caffeine and have a go at it with the dremmel. then pound it home with some red thread locker. seems to be in straight and spinning so hopefully i will forget about this shade-tree fix by race day.

craberating the portrations

some ideas i have about how things work are spot-on while others are...   not so much. in finding some speed in my carb, i hope that the generous application of 2k grit and JB weld will work out.
