I didn't log too many miles for this installment, but the 1000 miles noted above were amassed almost exclusively at the racetrack. I'm diligent about getting the bike dialed-in for the track du jour and the tires I'm running, but I'm incorrigibly lazy when it comes to putting things back to the street settings come Monday. I'll roll on shagged race rubber until I scare myself, and leave the shock spring preload cranked full-stiff until my next track day. It's a shallow excuse, but having hydraulically adjustable preload was a major factor in requesting a custom G3-S shock from Race Tech ($1349.99; www.racetech.com). Now, setting sag is as easy as aiming a 10mm T-handle at the preload collar, plus the damping adjustments are more finely tunable and the ride-height adjustability will enable me to further experiment with chassis geometry and compensate for varying tire heights. This bike is turning into a seriously capable track tool!
