I would like to split the costs, so if I don't find a ride or someone wants to ride with me I'll take your trailer Jason.

I'd like to make this weekend but I need to check out the finances first. I really wanted to do ACC next weekend but that's definitely out so I'm really hoping for BHF again.

Pat, let me know what your final plan is. I can split cost if you're taking the trailer. Which days are you doing?

I would like to do both days, but it depends on my finances. If I can knock off a liquor store this weekend, I'll do both for sure.

No Shells Remember I had the white 600RR on the track already in 2007, LOL.

My Victoria has some issues and i don't have time to get it fixed, so Simon offered to help out if he can use Jen's bike's spare bikini

Jen said yes!

Oh yeah I was!!!

I was riding Jen's bike first time and thinking, daym, where do i get a set of stainless steel brake lines on a Sunday LOL I'm getting Simon here!!

I came back and I said: "I need a cigarette now..."

But seriously, my F4i has been a great bike and I really hope to sort the troubles out at BHF this weekend.

As long as it is sprung for you body weight already I wouldn't worry about stock suspension. Stock suspension on modern bikes is pretty damn nice. I would try the settings you have on it now first, it is feels good, great. If not I am sure someone at BHF will give you some pointers. Fyi, The folks over at Safety first did a killer suspension set up on my bike for $40. Took about 20 mins. Worked great on the track.
