Going to take the F1 out for a track day very soon, and let the TT900SS rest. New Dunlop Q3s and BRIGHT green paint for the wheels. Did a few more minor changes/modifications while it was apart. MikeV

OK, you win. I'm spending my winters in the Pacific Northwest! A busy man Mike, you are a busy man. Retirement agrees with you. Lou

I have to tell you LOU, that your F1 (now with another owner) inspired me to paint the wheels this way. Yes, your front was red with the back one green, but I liked it. My front kind of looks like a Christmas card up against the fender (red and green do clash), but this is all meant to by fun! Besides, I own some Harbor Freight paint guns now (watch out Steve and Robbie), and nothing is permanent. MikeV

This is the one 750TT

And here was a rooster who showed up to watch me work. He was very curious about my tools on the floor. He seemed lonely, so eventually (after a few mornings of early crowing) I caught him and took him to someone out in the country who had a lot of hens.

If the sky does not fall we are ready. Also went to 14-tooth front sprocket; this one fits nice and tight compared to the 15-tooth, with no slop at all. MikeV

You are right Brad. I took it out a couple of times to put some scuff on the tires, but got nowhere near the lean angles of MM. Then I got the trailer ready, and will start on the travel list. We are just heading into good weather here on the right-side-up part of the globe. MikeV

Portland was perfect in April. Here was some fun at Thunderhill in May. MikeV
