Started my project today.

ABS is completely out and the new lines installed. First, why have i been working on brakes with anything other than an air powered vacuum bleeder??!  Wow that makes draining brake fluid a synch.

Anyway, pulling the ABS was a bit of a pain but after I decided to cut the hard lines inside the bike everything came out pretty easy. Core Moto lines fit perfect and look trick.

I also ran all the wires for the Translogic. The directions were pretty generic. I need to give a shout out to the Monkey Man for helping me figure out a few items with the QS setup. It really is plug and play. If I hadn’t wasted my time trying to read the instructions I probably would not have had any issues. LOL

I haven’t messed with the ABS pump yet. I didn’t have any brake fluid anyway so I have to wait to finish it all up.

RocketDan was an enterprising young lad and bought this gem of a 1984 Pontiac Fiero before he even had a license. His older brother was less savvy with his dinero so had no car. In exchange for driving the sweet Fiero the older brother had to also be a chauffeur.

Don't have any pic of me on/in my first vehicles so you'll have to settle for some I pulled off the intarwebnets.

1989 was a good year for used cars and used mx bikes... in 1993... or was it 1994?  Either way it feels like it was a couple lifetimes ago.

Post up your pictures here of your first bike or car.    What did you think I was talking about??



I was 17 years old when I bought my very first car.  It was a 1971 Plymouth Satellite Sebring Plus purchased from the original owner for $550.
The second picture is a 1963 VW Bug thrown in just for fun.  I didn't buy it, but drove it for awhile. I'm 16 years old in the photo.

I tried to look this up because I'm confused. First from what I found if this is the annual Lightning Lap test it looks like they use the Grand Course for that test. I did find where a Porsche 918 Spider lapped Grand in 2:43 in 2014. I'm confused though because assuming this is the Full Course a 1:43 seems to be a very respectable lap time for a car. A Motorcycle can't touch that. If the lap time is actually 2:43 (which would make sense in the context that a bike could be 40 seconds faster) then that seems very slow for a million dollar car. A Miata maybe might be that slow, but a high performance Porsche?

On the subject of cars being faster than bikes, I think it's interesting that the bike record at Road Atlanta is 1:23 something back in the day before the chicane and the new T12. It's impossible to really compare at a professional level at VIR because cars and bikes don't run the same configuration, but RA can be compared back when bikes and cars ran the same track. I was watching the Petite LeMan a few years ago on TV and the prototype cars were running seven or eight seconds faster than than that (1:15 or so)...in the dark. Qualifying times I think were about 1:12. I can't imaging driving Road Atlanta at that speed with only headlights to see by.

Gould's been exposed to too many game rays  :D     

Joe let me know when those 1:35 cars visit, I'd like to go observe that.
