Angry wasted $200 this weekend

well, this weekend sucked. when i crashed my bike last time i raced, i broke my master cylinder. so i replaced the master, but the lines weren't working (sucking air by the master).

so i swapped it out for another master and set of lines i had.

not sure what happened. lost brakes on the bike (lever went to grip, nothing). i was going slow trying to make sure all of the fluid was off the tires.

the ccs folks were nice, they got me a refund form, we'll see what happens. i'm not counting on anything though.

my last six races:
1 finish
4 DNS's
1 DNF

kinda makes me wanna think about a new bike... my 400.

currently, the bike is currently getting some plates made to mount my r1 calipers. i think i have a gsx-r master around. and i have like 3 sets on lines. i will be back, with brakes, for VIR!!!
