ha ha well now, we might find ourselves in a good old fashioned minnesota nice-off if we aren't careful.

I dunno if you caught it through the grapevine or what but i worked for Harley for the last two years doing powertrain design, got to meet a lot of really good folks through there, ended up quitting that gig and bought a lil' farm up north wisconsin and now i design trailer hitches, haha, little change of pace.

some of these people, you can catch for a 5 minute watercooler conversation and learn more than reading 5 books. my buddy Wes (second place in 500 at Barber this year) and my other buddy Andy (first place in the same race) gave me some really good tips for 'flat out friday' at mama tried two years ago where i built that bike to compete on a flat track concrete oval covered with sticky soda syrup.

alas, my wrist pin needle bearing didn't like 11,000 rpm on 13x45 gearing when i was doing test and tune down the block and i didn't even get a chance to run that bike.. bummer. its a shame because it was wicked fast and the handling from the little bit that i got to ride it felt damn good...

next year for moped GP i'll try to throw together this stroker athena AJH dmp clone kit that has been on my shelf for too long and see what i can do in single speed class.
