Amen to that. AORTA 2011, a description from the back seat of a get off at Bent Creek had the stokers arms flailing the description. Sometimes you can go dirt bike fast.

As for that triple, good on ya for the kind attitude towards others. I knew the Woods had a bike or two, but did not realize there was a squadron of supersonic jumbo jets in such close proximity. After STR 2010 in Alabama, seeing those long bikes pull away effortlessly, I came to realize best we can do is out brake them and maybe carry more corner speed.

Hope it builds well and gives many trouble free miles.

Sneak Peek of the "refreshed" Precision Triplet

After a 300-mile / 5-hour round trip to Washington, Georgia and a short visit with Hill Clarke at AirGlow, our triplet frame was back at home on Friday, May 11th for the first time in about 3 weeks.

As those who were following my blog updates on the paint job already know, the paint job is really spectacular. Itís something of a sinister paint scheme, but thatís what we were after. Unless thereís a lot of light, the bike looks nearly all-black, but when the sun hits it the black cherry on the back 1/3 of the frame really pops, along with the branding. Anyway, here are some sneak-peek shots. Again, until we have a sunny day the real color of the frame just wonít show through.
