I've been building mounting brackets for the quarter fairing. Three weeks till I leave to Ohio with it. I had two bikes featured on Pipeburn this week. Time to get back to work.

I made it back from the Lake Erie Loop race at noon on Sunday. What a blast! My class started at 6:02am Saturday morning. My bike took a while to warm up, so I was a few seconds late going through the gate. It started in Wellington, OH. I headed toward the Ohio turnpike and picked off most of the riders by the time i got on the turnpike. Headed west in full tuck wide open all the way to Toledo, OH. Gassed up, payed the toll and headed straight north on I-280 to I-75 to Detroit, wide open full tuck. My support truck payed his toll and didn't catch up to me until a mile from the Ambassador Bridge at customs in Detroit. I gassed up, went through customs, rode over the bridge to Ontario and headed straight east on the QEB 401. I got behind the truck and cruised. Had to merge onto the QEB 403 and headed towards Hamilton, ONT. I flew past the last rider and was in the lead and had a good 10mph over the 2nd place rider. Started running out of gas, so I pulled over. It wasn't out of gas. I pulled a plug cap and stuck a plug in it, no spark. I took and seat off and check the battery. Fuck, .18volt. When I had the seat off, i noticed gas dripping off the tank. I think the vibration may have cracked a seam. After 340 miles into the race (over half being WFO), sadly had to load it up. Went to Niagra Falls and through customs, detained for about a 1/2 hour and started heading back. Saw one of the riders on the side of I-90 in PA. He blew an oil seal, so we made room in the truck for him and the bike and headed back to the finish line. We headed back to Iowa at about 9:00pm and pulled made it home by noon on Sunday. Put on 2330 miles. What a great experience and looking forward to doing it again.

Excellent read and effort. Your bike came out top shelf, its been a treat to follow your thread. Holding that WFO for those hours must have been an intense vibe. May I be the first here to salute your run.
