I'll post race photos soon.
ECTA Award banquet was a good time, racing this weekend didn't go as well as we had hoped but we can say we where there when our good friend, "Wild Bill", went 272mph to become the world's fastest motorcycle.
rolled the I95 corridor this past good friday to meet up with Smilin' Jack and enjoy a little Springtime in the City. first stop, Sixth Street Specials to pick up the freshly tuned '67 650. next stop, the clubby, old style charm of the Velvet Cigar Lounge - smoking not prohibited. wrapped the afternoon with the pizza in the City, Arturo's Coal Oven Pizza. good times.
Sixth Street Specials, 6th Street at Avenue C

I have all the characteristics of a human being: blood, flesh, skin, hair; but not a single, clear, identifiable emotion, except for greed and disgust. Something horrible is happening inside of me and I don't know why. My nightly bloodlust has overflown into my days. I feel lethal, on the verge of frenzy. I think my mask of sanity is about to slip.

Peter thought it would be hilarious if he decorated my new Trackmaster 750 with some stickers. I hope he likes how I'm keeping the dust off his new KTM and helmet. Five boxes of cling wrap and I feel a whole lot better.
See, I'm learning to channel my rage effectively and keep an even keel.
Today was truly like Christmas at Sixth St Specials. UPS delivered the boxes from Fritz and needless to say I was foaming at the mouth to put the bike back together.
Words fail me so I'll let Fritz's magic speak for itself.
I picked up one of those Drag Spec. Sporty breather kits, it leaves a little to be desired but, for as cheap as it is, the horseshoe top cross over and banjo bolts were worth it.
Im going to swap out the kits provided black hose for some braided...
But I stepped to the lathe and turned down and tapped some aluminum for a little breather collector (the kit does not come with one) for the bottom of the hose...Just some regular foam to fill it in, polish it up....and Wahla! off to the races.
Im going to run it up under the seat, once I get the braided hose to dress it up a bit...but you get the point...Right?
