Basic Motorcycle Rules

Rule #1 - If you get on a motorcycle, you will crash.
Rule #2 - See rule #1 after you have crashed. (same rule applies)

Brian....
Do you know how many times I have proved rule #1 right?
.... sadly... If I was a cat.. I think I'd be dead by now

That said....

I do try to limit my crashing.. and haven't done it in a while... (knock knock knock)

I think I now have a better idea where my limits are.. and I try to stay a healthy margin to the inside of that line...

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

That's why the Stupid Gixxer was such an awesome track/race bike. Much easier to push and ride hard, because unlike the Ducs, I had 0 emotional attachment to that thing.

Tracking a bike you're invested in just makes it stressful and that much less fun with all the "what ifs"
