Blackhawk Farms 5/20

Who else is going? I'm pretty sure Wink and Kotlinski are gonna be there. My first day out on the new suspension. Hope to see some of you there.

I might have found a purpose! I can be your pit bitch and adjust your suspension for you. It's about time I did something useful.

I'm going home to throw the other bike in the big ugly van, pack a cooler and head up there. I'll bring some fire wood to, we can have a little fire and lie to each other about how fast we are.

No gate fee. I'm thinking about stopping by Winks house on the way up to watch some of the Blackhawks game.

Just ditch work like the rest of motorcycle track day addicts and come out and play. Ditching work and riding motorcycles rules.

Frown on duct tape? What? If your bike is properly duct taped it will pass tech.

Turn One took care of the forks with new internals and springs and I picked up an Ohlins Triple clicker during the off season; They refreshed that as well.
