Hmm, no kidding. I figured since you had known them a long time, they would be in Kansas. Didn't know you had a long history with the sorry half of Oklahoma. You going to be there indefinitely? Moving the family and toys there, if you haven't already?

Reply to the PM when you can, no rush.

Yes, congrats on your new venture. Next time I see my brother-in-law in OKC, I'll make a point of stopping by to say, "Hello". Again, the best success to you.

Re: Back in the industry again...

Sometimes people need a change.. and a change to do what you love is a good thing. Hope you still have time to school us on carbs and what not.

Re: Back in the industry again...

Right now I am pretty busy getting back up to speed in this industry, but it should be cool. Plus I have access to more tools, better parts prices, employers that understand me being on the track, etc

Chris, sounds like you may have found your dream job and congrats on that. You never know, I may be asking advice on the Victory range.

Congrats on your new adventure. Most definitely surround yourself with positive people. I will never understand why people are difficult at work...just do your job and leave out the negativity.

The expression by your wife is spot on. I think it's great to express an opinion in a way that makes ONE think about how ONE acts. She's teaching them young and hopefully, they take it to adulthood.

I've read you rebuild carbs...still gonna do that or are you gonna concentrate on the JOB and Racing? You are definitely living life to the fullest.

All the best.

Re: Back in the industry again...

Alot of what my wife teaches the kids rubs off on me.
I hope to keep up with carbs, got too much money and time sitting around in spares, parts, jet kits, tools.... And I like it.

^^That's good to hear.

So basic is the stuff we learn as kids and yet somehow along the way, we forget to use it.

I'd like to know if you would rebuild any carbs I may need done. Nothing but great reviews on your work...and I kinda like to believe what I read.
