No mountain biking for me this weekend anyway, the rear shock on my pushbike shat itself on Sunday. It bottoms out at a mere push now, but hasn't lost any air pressure. I think something must be fucked in the compression circuit. Monarch Plus: don't get one.
Thanks for the info re: the plastics RK. 12 pieces is a lot isn't it? I'm struggling to count 12. Front mudguard, headlight surround, 2 tank panels, 2 side plates, back mudguard. That's 7. What else do you get? Radiator shields? What else? I'm quite keen on the idea of repainting the frame KTM orange in the front triangle. I'd love to get real carbon mudguards. Hopefully your carbon stickers will look cool. I've seen two cars with it done. One looked unreal, one looked shite. Hopefully yours is unreal!
I'd love to see that team racing CPIs. I haven't been to the track for over a year. I would definitely go if I knew there was going to be a CPI class race.
So yes this Sunday, I'll book the time off my family. Provisionally 9am at the Longtan 7-eleven/Hi-Life? (How does a Hi-Life stay in business with a 7-eleven next door? One has to wonder...). YES!
I don't know why I said 12 pieces, I think that was a mistype/brain fart. I think 7 is right!
Actually I haven't put those extra sets one, they are still in the bag from over a year ago. I asked 2 places about the carbon stickers. One place quoted me 7K and the other 4K. I think I am going to go with the 4K....but that could be a bad idea!
I just called on Pommes King's CPI and it doesn't look like it will be ready by Sunday. I didn't realize this, but he got the same titanium exhaust system as I have and that company doesn't carry those in stock. Once you order one, they make it. So it takes a few weeks to finish.
Beast and I will be out at the track though, but I won't be running my CPI. I will be dialing in my NSR. I have upgraded some things on it and I haven't ridden the track in about 6 months. I have a race coming May 6th, so I need some adjusting/practicing time. You are more than welcome to come out there and say hi though. But, yes I am totally down for a CPI run really soon. Maybe the following weekend will be better.
