It sucks all the good stuff is covered up inside. I know you have a TON of great parts in there. Love those bikes, they just look fast.

I'm hoping for big changes over the winter.... New motor, and paint theme

Current setup:
-MHR RHQ crank
-Athena Race cylinder with stage6 modular head
-Stage6 R1200
Added this year also is the MHR gearbox cover with bearings on the inside, and SKF bearings all throughout the rear. Motoforce waterpump.

Looks good Mike!

I can't wait to see the winter project. Perhaps you could sneak away for a weekend and come down to some "warmer" climate when you get it all put back together. I would love to see it in person, and I'm sure the dyno would too.

Still planning on Twist and Gone?

The best I can say for now is I want to go to twist n gone, and am planning on it.

I haven't torn it down yet, its still running pretty well. There is a slight bog on some take offs, but other than that it been good for quite a while now.

I couldn't find a nice place to do the spread of parts for showing, but I have a feeling that there will be some pics being posted during the building process. :)

Hi Mikal, this morning I was thinking about the time you lent your
scooter out, and it came back with a missing piston clip! It's been
a while (a year+ ?). Thought I'd check in. Glad to see you are still building.

Hey Walter! Nice to hear from you. I'm going to be doing the tuning, Josh is taking on my motor assy this year. I still don't have to tools or skill to properly setup a crankcase, or port a cylinder, but I am getting better at tuning a carb and tranny.

Stick around buddy! We miss you!
