I like the focus on what can we do rather than what we can’t do. Reminds me of the phrase “Look at where you want to go, not at what you want to avoid”.

As always, much appreciated Ken. I don’t know of many people contributing more to our sport than you. Rock on!

Thanks Ken! Sorry for accosting you in the pits at Thunderhill yesterday, but I needed to shake your hand and say thanks in person for what you’re doing for our sport. I’m saving my pennies for some in person coaching

Ken is an outstanding contributor to our passion for 2wheels and words cannot come close to express the appreciation. It was mentioned in one of his pod casts that he gets one penny per listen! I was floored, this is an insult tip you leave a waitperson. May I suggest we all step up? There is no doubt that if you listen to the end it has value to you and that value is your call but to me it is no less than $5. I was so enlightened once that I dropped $20. I’ll confess that I’ve been a cheap bastard since then and vow to change that going forward. If you value someone’s service reflect that with your wallet.

Ha! Zero issues. Glad you got to say Hi.

One of my quick favorites

I need to keep my brakes cleaner. Have you heard of MotoAmerica guys using compressed air to blow dust out of calipers between sessions? What about bleeding brakes between sessions?

Thanks for all you do for our sport, Ken

We typically never need to bleed the brakes on any of our bikes. (Once the system is setup properly) We do service them once a weekend, which is basically removing the pads and cleaning the calipers and pistons with soapy water. No blowing of bike dust out. If we feel the lever is soft, we change the fluid.

Ken,

Just wanted to chime in and add my little thanks for what you've been doing. I've got a number of rich and rewarding years of racing behind me and I am hoping to get back to it once more in the near future. In this interim period, I've tried to keep myself physically and mentally prepared and your podcast has been a source of both knowledge and inspiration. Thank you!
