To all of my friends in VA

Hate me! I am in nice cool Miami, Florida weather! I was walking through South Beach with my shorts on and a nice t-shirt. Enjoying the cool breeze. I think the wife mentioned something about going to the beach and tanning tomorrow. We’re down here in the Cayenne. No Supra or GTR, just going to have some relaxing vacation time. Little does she know I have a surprise for her when New Year’s comes up next week. We’ve always been so close for this to happen but have never been in the area for it. So it will be pretty awesome when the ball drops this year.

Last weekend in California

It’s such a sad thing to let go of sometimes. I want to stay here forever, but I have an office to tend to. New bikes are in need of testing. The company needs help bad. We’re leaving Monday, so we’ll be home either late Wednesday or early Thursday. Depending how I feel on the drive. It’s a bit of a drive, but I can do it. Hell I did it before. Wasn’t tough, it’s just boring that’s all. But my wife and pups will keep me entertained for the duration.

I never got to take the CLK BS down Mulholland, kind of un-nerving, but I’d really like to do it sometime.

The drive on Mulholland!

leave a comment »

It was insane until I started feeling the car fight back a little. It is the suspension and it’s too rough for the street. But overall the drive was absolutely awesome. I was leaving heavy tracks of rubber from my Michelins on the road. No sign of the police though. The drive was literally insane with all of the curves and the adjustments on the drive. I really want a more road and race suspension. Not a purely race and hopefully suspension. Yes I am ditching the Moton setup, but I will be back with something truly unique. Well unique to Supras as I have more suspension work on my car than 95% of the community of Supra owners. Which is a lot I can say.

I am definately going with a Roberuta cup kit, so I may end up with some Top Secret coilovers. Maybe a Ohlins, Bilstein, or Aragosta setup. I am tempted with some Teins, or even a HKS setup. With those NOB coilovers coming out, I looked into those. They’re mainly drift coilovers though, nothing for street/track though. I’ll look around, all I know is the Supra will be sitting until I can get a new setup to attack Mulholland again.

Oh, I need new Michelins too. The 335s are spent after the run on Mulholland, and I mean spent!!!

AMA Infineon!!!

leave a comment »

Laline and I are currently in Sonoma for my team’s AMA race, we had a slip in today’s race, but it’s all good!!! One top tier rider came in 15th but the second tier rider won!!! How great is that!?! Another great thing was that I was getting paid to hang out. Just in case the computers failed or something. I did have to take off my sunglasses and break a sweat when it came to do a little minor work on the GSXR. But I am glad our boys are still consistant. We’re in spots 3 and 4 overall. But it’s our first year and the same with our riders. It’s their first year on premium and reliable rides. So it’s nice to see some wins!

That Laline and I will never have as much fun in a zoo that we just did in the past two hours. We some how got into the zoo un-noticed. Made our way to some secret spots and did our groove thing. I know Laline doesn’t like us posting about our sex life. But that little session we just had. OH WOW was I turned on and now I am completely wore out.

Oh, I forgot to mention, I did all of this with a root canal just done this morning. How do you like that!?!

On Monday I go in for my porcelain crown, or Tuesday. Whichever is good for the dentist.

Here I am in Cali. Sitting down on my patio with my laptop out doing a blog. We’ve got all the cars in, the dogs are playing around in the backyard. Things are going great here.

Let’s do a little recap of our drive. It was pretty boring, I never really got time to stop and do tourist things with the wife. Which we partly wanted to do, but there was no place to do that stuff at. Our trip took us went around Vegas which sucked, but was good. I don’t think the dogs would last in Vegas, nor did I want to worry about them.

The car transporter was a day late, which was okay. It allowed us some time to relax. Do a little grocery shopping to get the house set up for us to live in. I had to hook up the internet, get the DirecTV set up here as well. It is a pretty nice place to live in.

Today the cars and bikes got dropped off. It was awesome to see the Supra and Benz come rolling off the trailer. The sounds echoing off the houses, sme car alarms went off, a nice little wake up for the neighbors. I situated the cars in the garage, along with the bikes. Tomorrow I’m taking the Ducati out and going exploring around town. Seeing what is going on and where places are.

I am freaking tired. Look for an update blog either tomorrow morning or afternoon. I can’t even think too much right now.
