BTW, good ride at Warp Speed Stallionforce--I recognized the bike as it is very similar to mine. The crosswinds were a lot stronger than I thought they would be. I managed to pull out a win in the 5's though--by 5 minutes! Good for the ego, I guess.
Hey thanks Nagedzi! Your time for the 5's is awesome! Congrats. Are you going to upgrade soon?

Yeah, I'd never ridden in a crosswind before -- not like that. I found my Hed disk gave me a bit of a push on the return leg which helped a bit. My speedo was not working, though, which was frustrating.

Tonight I managed to crash in my club TT -- my front went soft and I didn't notice, and went through a corner, bam! Crashing in a TT, so embarrassing. Such a perfect night, too -- no wind, and super warm for this time of year.

Next time I will look out for your P2. And come up and say hi!
