Finally she's done! *Updated*

Just finished getting the new 05 all prepped and race ready with all the good parts, took it for test yesterday and MAN is it sweet. Pulls like a rocket ship. I'm psyched so I just had to post up about it.

The clutch is great, and I'll get some good pics of it up tonight likely. But here is one for now that I can show, but in this pic it was bone stock exept for plastics. And of course thanks to Lisa for this shot.

damn, you look like an ogar on that thing haha

I commend you on a job well done. You put together something to be proud of. What kind of times do you run at Barber if you don't mind me asking. and of course if you have been and have a lap timer

I imagine I hold the record!! kidding, actually never been there yet, next year I think. I run about 1:21 at Jennings GP and 1:30's at Homestead Miami if that helps.

I do look huge on the bike, especially with these new komodo leathers. They have so much freakin armor that it makes me look like a gorilla, even though all I am is tall not too huge.

yeah.. damn.. how heavy, and tall are you?

i'm 6'2 and weigh about 175 at my racing weight. In that pic I was about 180ish I think, but those leathers really make me look huge on the teeny honda haha.

And i'll definitely get some pics of the baby up soon.

that pad I made out of one of those 5 buck gym mats from walmart, and I use it to keep my body back a little so that its easier for me to get into my cornering position under really hard braking. I'm too tall to be right up on the tank in a corner. I get in my own way.
