Wikipedia - Adrenaline Junkie - An adrenaline junkie is somebody who feels as if they are addicted to adrenaline. Adrenaline junkies may enjoy competing in extreme sports like skydiving, surfing, motorcycle racing, or anything else that gets their heart rate up. This sort of addiction is brought on by enjoying the (adrenaline) "rush" gained from these activities.

Time enough to clean the trailer... all shiny again.

Organizing the front of it now.

Some months this summer have no weekends off.. so this is a nice break.

I hear ya Ron. My next NESBA event is at the end of July!!!

Since I dont want to go to Putnam (too cheap to pay for a hotel), I needed to break the 2 months of nothingness with a couple Blackhawk days with another organization (which will remain nameless).

But this hiatus gives me time to put my bike back together. Hopefully she will be all good to go by the next Blackhawk event with NESBA in late July.

Why don't you camp with us other cheap skates? The campground is pretty nice and I am guessing we will have plenty of "good" company Wink, Ron, AJ,Mopar, the Larsons and so on.

I thought I heard Putnam doesnt allow camping.

But I cant afford it anyways. I have about $800 in repair work I need to do to my 636 if I want to make her track ready again; And thats hoping my tripples and forks are straight.

But you guys have fun. I am actually going to enjoy the little break I have. Maybe do a little street riding. Yeah I said it. Street riding.

Picking it up from 4&6 this week, gotta set of forks worked by Traxxion going on there tommorow, and after that it should be good to go. I might even get to ride it at the Autobahn MCC day this Monday and start getting use to having almost double the power that I'm accustom to
