Now I can plug in and self tune easily
Since it's near a very hot engine and that cord isn't made for that kinda heat, I would think heat wrap with oils be good for the cord?? This is just an idea I have no real clue if that would work lol.

But very very smart idea with the USB extension!!

It should be fine because I routed it with the other wiring and it's protected inside the rubber surrounding the wiring near the engine

Nope, not this weekend unfortunately. I'm dying to ride so badly!

Yeah Farrell is definitely out there. Are you friends with him on FB? I've been following his live videos out there haha!

I'm not but I'm friends with Sean, one of the guys that's there with them (not sure why, I think he's sponsoring their team maybe?) and he was sharing Farrell's videos. I didn't watch all of it, they were too long lol

Instagram, no. Too much social media crap lol...facebook is more than enough! I pretty much only use it for motorcycle related stuff, and to watch dog and cat videos!

UPDATE: SHES FINALLY BACK IN ONE PIECE!!

Repairing the fairing wasn't so bad. Again, they're not perfect, but I'll inevitably crash on them again eventually so I'm not too worried

Lol! That's kind of what I was thinking when I was repairing them. I could've easily spent twice as long and made it look even better buuuuut it just wasn't worth it to me.

Did you notice I ditched the yellow on the tail? I decided I didn't like it...lol

When's your next race?

I did notice that. I'll turn yellow anyway once you get those yellow number plates on there when you start racing

My next race? Oh god....like April 15th. I got a long ways to go. We don't have your weather around here lol

Hah that's true! Did you make your own number plates or buy them somewhere?

Wow that's a long ways away. I'm already dying waiting until the end of Feb. I need to get a dirt bike again so I can stay sane while I'm not at the track!

No, I splurged on nice looking ones. Got mine from Chris Kruzel (Drippin Wet), however it was not a good experience dealing with him, so in the future I'll probably end up going with PopShadowDecals plates. The lady who does all the decals there was really nice and helpful but unfortunately I was pressed for time then and she happened to be out on a business trip for a week and I needed the plates sooner so I can have them for the first event of the year.

At least you can do stuff outside in the winter. I pretty much just drink more and waste time looking at bikes and racing on youtube and forums in the winter lol
