    Get well soon ARay! Now i have to tell my kids the “sketchy guy” is out for a little bit. My kids are 8 and 12 and ask about you every week before the race! Love the new studio. Looks professional and im a sucker for the wood panelling in the background. Love hearing all of your thoughts on the weekend. Keep up the good work!

    Send the ACF Pro Tapers to Factory Kawi. The extra room on the bars will give them an option to mount a flashing red light to warn him when he is about to ruin his race and season with another collision.

    Need an “A Ray Rides Away” t shirt with Sam and him on the back hauling a**.

    Don’t worry Chase, you don’t have to do anything bad to get that Fox gear. I’m pretty sure that’s the uniform for Space Force, so just head down to your local recruiter and join up!

    Great Race Tech shoutout to Justin Haas at Route 15/JH2 suspension, he’s a great dude and actually took my dads old mechanic spot at Belleville honda back in the day that Anton mentioned! And he still does work for us and gets parts for me to this day!

    With Alex having a little time off (heal up quick A-Ray) is it more likely that he will make another finishline before one of his swimmers does?

    Beyond bummed I wont get to see Aray in Arlington, on a completely unrelated note who would have thought my favorite bit of content so far in 2023 from Swap would be his comment on MOTO MEMES V-day post….Pleasing Her indeed….LMAO

    A Ray needs to make sure he adds the torque spec for the screws in his thumb to his mechanics cheat sheet

    since Aray needs thumb surgery at least he’ll be able to give a permanent thumbs up to the oneal rdx 2.2’s!
    great content guys listen every week! keep up the hard work.

    The new studio is awesome, but what does MC think about you guys leaving? Is he lonely now, or do you still keep your test bikes there? Thanks for the great content.
