    Roller her out of the trailer this morning, cleaned up the mud/rash/dirt from my 'whoops' a few weeks back, straightened everything out, and put my fresh set of graphics on her.

    The number plates pictured here are yellow w/ blue numbers, per the PPIHC regulations. I've got Lisa at 212decals.com making me some CMRA-legal decals that'll have white backgrounds, black numbers, and the CMRA logo...I'll put these on the extra set of number plates from Ted at AF1 Racing, so when I do CMRA-related events I'll be able to swap the plates out easily, and then slap the PPIHC plates back on when I head to Colorado. w00t!

    Thanks to Ted and AF1 Racing, Brandon Spradling at P1 Racing, John Hutchinson at South Central Race Center/Bridgestone Tires, and all the other awesome people who are making all of this possible for me this year.

    I may have already told you this on FB, but I want 1080p video of this from the first person POV. I want to live vicariously though you.

    Seriously, don't fall off the cliff.

    Are you go-proing yourself to tape it?

    Great looking bike! What is it? Slicks - I'm confused here. Old School brain cells - Pikes Peak used to be a hill climb with knobbies.

    You running some kind of road coarse?

    As of September 2011, Pike's Peak is fully paved, thanks to a lawsuit from some hippies a few years back.

    The bike is a 2007 Aprilia SXV450

    Totally unaware they paved the peak.

    It's a beautiful bike - I would guess it hauls ass and handles like a dream.

    Drove the road last week. Make sure you're well hydrated before you do it, and acclimated to the altitude. I felt nearly drunk by the summit. Up was fun as hell. Down was awful.
