Well, not the greatest WCR I've been on
but I'd like to send out a few special thanks.
First to Jim, Jeff's brother, for chasing the group with the trailer. I didn't think it would be needed but we all know how that worked out.
Then for Colleen and Tony. She took Saturday off from riding and therefore Tony rode her bike and he let me ride his.
Dave, I hope your shoulder is feeling better. Your bike is safe and sound in my garage. Rides fine however while riding in the less than stellar weather it seemed to look like it might be possible that a fork tube may have slightly spun in the triple. You're going to want to loosen them and release any tension that might be on them. Front nose mount is a little tweaked and you know about the rear peg/brake lever. Everything else seems to be fine.
I'm pretty impressed on the power of the SV and the transitions between on and off the throttle is really smooth. Friggin' twins have a lot of engine braking. Hardly used them on 3/36 on the way to 5.
One note. Going over the mountain in the rain at about 25-30 near the summit, it started to have some issue, felt like opening and shutting the throttle over and over when it should have been neutral throttle, and it ended up running on what felt like one cylinder with a muted exhaust. It all seem to clear up once we lowered our altitude. Maybe something with a sensor or something got wet. Just glad it didn't croak 60 miles from anything.
Either way, runs great and rides fine. When Jeff gets back I'll try to drop it off when I go to get my GSXR paper weight.
