You've seen the Flesh's bike. Now it's time for Skinny Pt. 2! Just got everything mounted back up, and things seem to be all good in the hood with this bike now.

First, yes I am fully aware of the Fruit Stripe / Skittles thing. It just came out that way. But hey - the white is all pearl, and I think with decals on this bike it is going to look GOOD. And there will be no missing this bike on the track, I'll get attention even if I'm in last place (which is a distinct possibility!
)

Morse Fiberglass and GP Composites did a great job on the paint quality and taping as well.

The orange wheel was kind of an afterthought, the result of swapped wheels. However I kinda like it...

Here is Marcus McBain of Racing Performance Services, setting the geometry about a month ago:

Morse Custon Fiberglass and GP Composites out of Colorado Springs.

They definitely make top notch bodywork, and have the paint skills to make it look good! A LOT of MRA guys use them for this stuff, it always comes out looking professional and clean (and I've probably seen at least 20 bikes they've painted).

Yup, Adam (webcrush) on here was selling a full Hindle and some other parts, which I took off his hands a couple months ago. Definitely sounds burly compared to the OEM pipe! Can't wait to see how it rides tomorrow.

For this season, I've:
- Rebuilt and replaced all suspension, including full racetech up front and a Penske triple in the rear
- Suspension tuned by RPS (a Traxxion dealer)
- Put on the correct 5.5" wheel instead of the 6 I had on before
- Painted bodywork (obviously)
- Switched to Michelin, through Vanmar Racing
- Corrected a little oil leak I found, which would have made a nice mess
- Replaced brake rotors with a straight pair
- Replaced exhaust with full Hindle kit

I also purchased this truck and trailer to haul everything around in


Breck Brewery is making us some nice banners and stuff as part of the sponsorship with them, and the pit is gonna be purrdy. This is going to be a GREAT year to race!
