September riding!

Alright ladies!

I checked the calander and I'm free Sunday the 21st and Saturday the 27th. I got clearance from the boss and I'm riding both days.

21st is Fox Valley hare scramble and the 27th is a WFO dual sport in Geneseo. I'll be at both.

Anyone else? Chris???

I put on my robe and wizard hat!

Eric

You bet! I'm in for the Fox Valley hare scramble for sure. Believe I may be busy that following weekend for the dual sport though. I'll see as we get closer.

I'll be there for both the GP on saturday and HS on Sunday. It will be a nice long weekend of riding.

I've never done a GP before so it should be a good time. I'm hoping that the rain isn't too bad saturday night.

Make life challenging. Be the underdog!

Great day of racing! Rain from the night before made for a pretty slick course, but it wore in pretty good as the race went on. Wishing it wasn't the last FVOR race of the year. Season went by too fast.

Unofficial results are up here. http://www.racetimerlive.com/

Pics are up on FreeMotoPix FB page. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...6914277&type=1


Almost look like I know what I'm doing.

I absolutely love it. Extremely light and flickable. I know Iíve made this reference before but think mtb with a motor in it. Also makes picking up off the ground less of a back breaking experience.

Definitely requires more work to go fast IMO say compared to a 2T 250 and larger, but thatís another reason why I love it. Itís more satisfying to me having a bike that requires me to constantly be working through the gears and modulating the clutch to keep moving. The Midwest mountain engineering clutch lever has been my saving grace for the latter. I will say playing with the power valve adjustment has improved the mid-range grunt quite considerably compared to the stock setting. If I do happen to fall of the pipe, which is a lot in my case, it lugs surprisingly well for a 150.
