    Hmmfph. Think I’ll go buy another new screwdriver today.
    I live out in the country where stuff is a little cheaper and drive older vehicles, makes it easier to support my hobbies. Bought my first house when I was 22, small 2 bed 2 bath, then a couple years later I built a shop similar to the one I have now, as I was getting into rock crawling pretty hardcore. I didn't have much land or budget, so I built a 20x24. Shortly thereafter, I knew if I ever built another, it would be twice that big at minimum. Didn't want to skimp on this one and have regrets later. At 40x36,I'm extremely happy with how it turned out. My side of the shop is 30x36, wife's is 10x36. Works out just right for the both of us.

    I rode 180 miles yesterday after work and still made it home in time for burgers/grilled cob! Rode out to Cheney Wa, then down to nearly St John Wa just to get this shot! :{P

    There is a farmer/impliment place out there literally in the middle of no-where and this is some of the "Yard Art" he has there around his place.

    Woooohoooo! What a nice day at the track! I brought a fan this time so I don't die from heat stroke, man it's so much nicer lol. Lesson learned.

    Took the feelers off the bottom of the pegs bc they were dragging, now I'm wearing off the bottom corner of my right boot and the kickstand is dragging on the left side. The toe slider is working alright, but getting close to the actual boot. It's just the way my foot position is.

    And I FINALLY touched my knee to the ground....barely lol. Right knee. Its difficult for me to lean off on the right far enough to get it down due to my other foot being so far forward on the highway peg. It's not really a big deal, but feels like "achievement unlocked" haha. Been 10 years since I've scrubbed a knee puck.

I rode over through Airway Heights Wa and on to US Hwy2 through Wilbur Wa(yes i got a picture of Charlotte's web and the Pig),

    Video from the evaluation session to be bumped up to Intermediate group. Started out following the instructor, then SHE waved me by so she could watch/evaluate me, then we went back and forth passing each other a couple more times throughout the vid. She is fast as hell on her little R3! She wasn't riding 100% either. Another instructor got mixed in with us too (blue leathers guy). Instructors wear bright orange or yellow vests over their leathers. Lot more action in this one that those other track vids I posted. I rode SO much faster today too, I had to start using 5th gear on the straights, carrying a lot more corner speed too. Man it was awesome, that is such a fun track!

    Tacoma, if the humidity there is reasonable I'd highly recommend a mister to help cool you down

    I swapped the front tire and flushed the brake on mine. Since I sold my tire machine I had to get creative as far as bead breaker goes. I wonder how many people use a vise as one.
