Yea, it's inland, but have you been tracking the storm? It's in the gulf of Mexico, hanging a right and coming across GA,SC,NC toward the Atlantic.

Anyone tracking the tropical storm? Should be sitting right over the Carolinas next weekend. I've had tickets for months, and I'm still going, but I'm preparing to walk around in a storm all weekend, but hoping for the best.

That guy struggles to make SX mains and runs 10th-15th outdoors on a good day. and you're saying he's FACTORY HRC material? Good thing no one uses Vital as a talent acquisition authority.

Night and day. The needle took any remaining hesitation out of the mid, and I think the pipe really helped the over rev situation. Shifted the power higher. Silencer sounded good too.

That guy who posts here Rob Andrews was racing the factory CR500 in the early 90s, and said he cased a triple step up somewhere, and stretched the frame to the degree that when they tried to load it back into the truck, it didnt fit. Was too long.
