The Catalina Grand Prix is a closed-course event. The approximate 7 mile course will include natural, graded, and paved terrain (80% dirt, 20% paved). Riders are considered finishers provided they make 50% of their class leader's laps and receive the checkered flag. Due to circumstances on the island, there will be no practice and all motorcycles will be impounded, except for the actual race.
We got together Friday at Paul's place to get to work on the CB.The plan was to have the bike running by the end of the night.The mission was accomplished and it sounded great.It will be on the road soon and I can't wait to try it out and get it up to speed on a straight away.

-This is the first picture of the new flat-track-inspired Royal Enfield Fury which is set to be unveiled at Carole Nash Motorcycle Live at the NEC this weekend.The new bike, probably the sauciest-looking new Enfield in decades, is based around the familiar, 500cc, air-cooled, single cylinder rolling chassis, but with US flat track styling courtesy of a new seat unit, wide bars, two-into-one exhaust and racy white and orange paintjob.
We had a guy show up with some models to do a photo shoot at the "Quasimodo" garage last night.All the locals showed up.The girls were done up just right,a lot of beers were drank and good times were had by all.When I get the shoot pics I'll put them up.
