Hi Everyone!!!

It's been a while since I've made a presence on the forum. 2020 was a crazy year, finally moved into a new house and changed jobs as well but now that I'm settled in and have my shop setup, back to enjoying my wrenching time on these machines. This is the first time I've been able to get my collection (well all but 3) together in one spot.

Well here's to a bright 2021, maybe I can even get some racing in too!

New shops are a great feeling, looks like you've put some planning into yours with lots of outlets for battery tenders and places for storage .... Planning on getting back on the track? The racebikes look ready for some action ....

Are those ventilation slots in the Lightning's primary chain case cover? Belt drive?

Lannis, yes i was able to put some thought into the layout and the 4' long power strip is great. Storage, can you ever really have enough? Im hoping to have the engine out of the A10 in the upcoming weeks and the A65 LSR just need the fluids changed and the battery installed to be fired up (cant wait to introduce the neighbors to running version) .

I think so, I was just starting to get the A65 bugs worked out when Ohio closed, upgraded the head and gearbox but never got around to tuning before life took over. Really curious to see what she can do in Loring with an extra 1/2 mile.
