Season opener is next weekend. Everything is pretty much ready. There's a small problem with lights on the new trailer, but it should get taken care of by Wednesday. I'm definitely excited to be back at Loudon. Hopefully she'll be kinder to me than last time, when I got launched off the curb on the outside of T8 and almost broke my arm. This week I will not be doing my regular cycling routine that I restarted a few weeks ago so as to allow my muscles to completely heal. I'll just be doing stretches and mentally doing some laps as I remember the circuit. I already watched a few onboard videos. I did that when I was preparing for Las Vegas and it really helped.
John Bunce of Roadracer Podcast
was gracious enough to record an interview with me, which is now due to go live in the next episode. I encourage everyone to check out this podcast, which covers all manners of club racing related news and information. He's already interviewed some very interesting people and I'm flattered to be in their company.
As you can see, project "new street bike" has moved on some since the last update. At this point, I need to grind off some of the steering stops, make some new wiring fittings, find a side stand, and lights. Tail light will most likely need a custom bracket made. Hopefully I won't get too much grief from DMV registering it.
