in weds with the new bike...

just got done installing brakelines and RBF600. just gotta make some numbers and im set.


Are mirror blockoffs really needed? mine has a giant oval hole, since the signals are in mirrors, and there's no way to ziptie the upper to the stay?

Hey David,

If you're going to Road America, you should let us do the full Sag setting and Suspension set up we discussed but you opted not to do at Blackhawk. As I mentioned while we were discussing your suspension issues, there's only so much I can do for you without actually seeing your bike, measuring everything, and pushing on it.

My boys told me you were rolling pretty good out there at Blackhawk, it might be worth the money to go ahead and let me and my guys over at Turn One do the full treatment to your bike and see if we can finish dialing it in for you.

Just a thought. Hope to see you at Road A.

Anybody who might be around the Joliet or Wood Dale area on Tuesday night or Wednesday and wouldn't mind delivering something for me up to Road America, I would appreciate it. This is small, nothing that you can't carry.

Please email me if you can> dean att dcdecals dott net

Thanks in advance.

What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.
