John,

I wanted to thank you and your wonderful wife for the outstanding service and great products!

The guys in CO Springs also have nothing but good things to say about you!

Great pictures Blaine!

I know we didn't get much time to hang out but I am glad we got some time, and more time to tune with your 450r.

Glad every thing went smoothly.

Great job Clutch, and cool pictures throughout the threads!!

Sounds like that was a great experience all around, from the comraderie between the racers and actually accomplishing the
primary goal of finishing!

Again, Congrats!

Kris

I was happy just to make it! Next year I'm going to take the physical conditioning part a little more serious! Thumb gave out on me at Glen Cove and I ended up using my left hand for the throttle for awhile...and my asthma started acting up...

There is some SERIOUS fast guys that run this hill...!

No kidding!

The pic of the bike by the sign is so poor because I was flat on my a$$! I literally rolled of the bike and crawled over to take the pic...

At 14K Ft, there is 1/2 the air density of were I live...at 890 ft or so...

Did you see the Area 51 Offroad bike (1st place in 450 class), Steve Tutt is the rider's name. He has won the event 2 years in a row on a 450cc Stock bore stock stroke 450R. That shop is located out by me (1 hr away).
