You crack me up! I am going to really be focusing on NO WEIGHT ON THE HANDS cuz the collar bone is still displaced. My/ the docs plan is to see if it heals by mid august or they bolt me together after Barber. I am not missing MAM or Barber because of a little itty bitty broken bone!

How fast and how much track time is ???? but I bet there will be a session or two on the 250 open for friends.

I'm in. Gonna chase the Grouch while throwing Flying Burrito's at Jesse as Firecat complains more about how his team bike can't make up for his riding woes.

I'll come roll with ya 5axis. You can show me how a real bike is supposed to corner.

if the bike is together by then you can count me in for both days. Hopefully with some exhaust packing that doesn't blow out in 2 sessions.

Motor blew.

Grasshopper wants to buy the engine, not sell me one. Although he is certainly the resident expert. I need to BUY a replacement motor, and then feed Grasshopper alcohol over the winter while he laughs at me rebuilding the current motor.

My damned SV has been in storage all this time... Finally bringing it to a shop next week to get those forks replaced and fix all the other tidbits that are broken on it. Can't wait to ride it after the new GSXR front end goes on though *drool*

Gotta throughly go over the 636 though before I do anything else. I remember getting a bit of oil on my boot the last couple of sessions I took it out but for the life of me I couldn't find any oil leaking outta the bike anywhere, so hopefully it was just a whole lot of excess chain grease that flung up.

Could it be from the bike that was in front of you? That happened to us last time at Barber.

Brian, if you have to pay $2500 for a cammed motor, I'd almost go with just buying another SV, I saw a couple of them around in the $2500 price range and you can part out the rest easily or keep them as spare parts.

Here's a couple from WERA, $2400 for a prepped race bike and $2200 for a stocker. Both kinda far away though...

$1000 for the cammed motor. The superbike motor is $2500. I rather have the reliable one anyway, I don't have time to work on motors. But great idea on teh cheaper SVs.... I'll check it out, thanks Jon.

Hey, can I buy any Chinese Firewater from you? LOL!

Hope you can make it Steve. You'll love that track, it'll be great for you to learn decreasing radius and increasing radius turns.
