Had a meetup with an old friend last night. Man it felt weird to sit on it, like the whole thing is a size or two too big for me which is probly why I never got the riding position dialed in...

So turns out the Busa is worth a fuckload of cash. So prepping it for sale. Fired it up for the first time in a couple years now, took a little to get it woken up but woke up it did. Battery is shot, levers were cannibalized for another bike, have a couple leaks to address and need to get the keyless ignition sorted. Shouldn't take too long, and is currently Priority #1. Sort that stuff out, get a photoshoot done, and then off to auction.

Listen to that engine! Didn't realize how much I missed this thing.

Hypermotard 1100S the weight-shavening.
Bandit 1200 cafe/fighter that will never get finished at this rate.
Turbo Busa v2 2017 Buildoff.
Turbo Busa V1.2 2016 Buildoff.
Turbo Busa v1.1
919 Hornet build'n'flip, lotsa electrical diagnostic info in there.

the race series I'm doing has a pretty serious purse this weekend for the pro class: 750, 450, 300, 200, 100. wish I was good enough to race the pro class.

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

having a dirt section with jumps is unusual for Sonoma

Awesome!!

You driving up there, racing, and driving back?

If so, that's hardcore.

I've made that drive up to SF and back a couple of times lately.

an island in the bay, right next to Oakland, on the other side of the bay from SF

I take a 20 minute ferry ride to SF to get to work
