    Good ride this morning! Temps in the 70's, cloudy and a spit of rain. Thank you Paul for leading us to Navasota and back!

    The K1200LT ran good except I wasn't paying attention to a left curve, adjusted my line and scraped the fairing, peg and centerstand. Thought I had the suspension on the soft setting as that is how my wife likes it when she rides. It was full on hard setting and remembered that the adjuster has some free play at the soft setting which means it is a little low on fluid. Topped it off just now and free play removed. Ready for the track now!!! A good tip for you Beemer owners. I can show you how it is done.

    Yeah, good ride with good friends and good Mexican breakfast in Navasota, but the pace was definitely tempered by that news. Wish you had made it.

    Forgot to put AMSOIL gas additive in before ride. Honda was a little sluggish from sitting so long. With the 2-new tanks of gas ran better.

    When I got back watched the race. What a weird state of events for the bike to take. Sliding on side and all of a sudden grips and goes directly back toward other side of track with MS underneath. Colin Edwards was lucky he only separated a shoulder a his t-boning MS's bike was horrific.

    RIP MS

    I was wondering why you were so far back Tim. I was going slow to keep you in site.
