    Balancing beads

    I put new Q3+ on the Ducati and left the weights on from the last change from RS10s. Nothing noticeably negative. I did this specifically to try out @durk's method. I don't have a speedometer on her at the moment, but Tonik said we hit 90mph at least once on the Gap trip and she felt as solid as ever. Considering a top speed of maybe 120, that's good enough for me to not worry about it when I take her on the track next.

    So Jim's Wing is amazing. Its light years ahead of the whale. So stable in the corners and clearly enough power. It looks great and pretty darn sleek considering it has three hards cases the passenger seat has arm rests. Nice bike man, ride the hell out of it.

    Good thing I took that boat anchor of a top case back with me. That extra 40 lbs could have made the difference in how that story ended.

    Yep. Was hoping you guys would stop after the dragon so we could say hey but you just kept rolling. I have a yellow helmet.

    I'm making the pins. It'll take me another day at the shop once I get the frame. Ain't happening. But yeah, itll be a huge improvement. Once I have one frame, my plan is to make a couple more myself. $300 each is a little steep when I know how to cut metal.

    Haha. Had to move it when I mounted the spare tire and did a clutch fluid swap. Ya know, cause I'm prepared on my maintenance.

    @NinjaDoc since you didn't like my last scowly picture, how about this one riding two up on the ass eating Grom? Thanks @DerekClouser for the pic.

    Knowing Doc, he probably hasn't slept in a week in anticipation. He's doing the best he can, cut a guy a break!

    Perfect weather = great riding and hanging with my friends. Crappy weather = talking about great riding and hanging with my friends. Neither of which involve work. Sounds like a perfect vacation to me.
