As I suspected I was indeed the only rider in the 40+ beginner heavyweight class at the Desert MC hare and hound race a couple of weeks ago.
Since then I found I was leaking a little oil and a little anti-freeze - on a brand new bike! I hate that. Well, I found out the oil leak was coming from the oil drain plug - a little turn of the wrench to snug it up was all it took to fix that problem.
The anti-freeze appears to be coming from the sensor. I haven't touched that one yet but I'll probably put some plumbers tape on it after the next race. It only had a drop every couple of days come out so I don't think it will be a problem (fingers crossed.)
I changed out the pads on my new knee braces since the last race was somewhat painful with the thick pads in place. I hope the thinner ones are a better fit.
I also put air bags in the coil springs of my minivan to help keep the trailer a little higher off the ground. I would scrape at nearly every sidewalk crossing (like when turning into a gas station.)
The last thing I need is to clean the air filter and a new goggle lens since I can't seem to find the clear one I bought a while back.
I hope to learn from my last race and make sure to eat a little more before the race - it is horrible to barely be able to pick up the bike after having only ridden 5 miles or so and have another 35 to go!
I'll have a video of this next one so stay tuned!
