Well I guess that's enough horsin' around,

so I had to leave a bit early and get back to Georgia. A fine weekend in many ways, but especially the people. What a sterling group of racers, wrenchers and fans. VIR's pretty nice too.

Bob - thanks for the pics and the narrative. Big thanks to Nate for letting us in on what's going on and for riding past the pain.

Capital idea!...I'll have to remember that when I finally replace mine with a Wilbers or Ohlins.

Hey Bob. I see that you got the ohlins back on the 11s bp. Can you tell the difference? Glad Nate is back in the saddle again.

Bubba....since all my riding so far has been transportation riding I can't really tell a big diff. Of note to me is that the guy who rebuilt them said the front internals still looked quite good, but the rear was shot. This with about 38,000 miles on them. I guess the rear is worked harder and the heat doesn't help.
