Blowing the cobwebs off sweepings

Postby Ringnalda » Mon Sep 11, 2017 12:32 am

Trackday for Sweepings at Mid-Ohio tomorrow. Going through it today found the nylon bushings at the top of the worx shocks have given up and beyond serviceable life. Have some new shocks but of course they would not fit immediately. Will see how the new bushings do otherwise will change out the shocks in the pits. It has been some time since the ol' girl has been around a circuit; looking forward to it!

Jan, it is great to hear Sweepings is going to be back on the track.
A lot of us lived vicariously through the trial and tribulations of a couple years ago.
Some pics and/or clip of the day would be great.

Thanks, Jan.
I hope you both survived in one piece.
Who was rustier, you or the bike?

Well the bike had new fork seals, new fork oil, new engine oil, new clutch and a general checkup.

I had a bowl of cereal before going to the track. Still feeling pretty sore two days later... The bike leans into bends lovely, but takes some lifting out of them.

Very enjoyable day though, will need to go again soon.
