Cheers mate, most of the time though I was shit scared leaning out through the corners and trying to hang on tight against the acceleration on the straight and thats only on the short track.

Next time he reckons we'll do the long track!

I'm gonna have to give this flat track a go some time, never tried it, but I love the style of bike.

Wally, go up to "Thread Tools" on the Tool bar and "subscribe"

I think your tracker will look awesome with wire wheels, make it your
winter project, and take lots of pictures of the process....we like pictures

Just a few locals...

Just a few pix I took of some of our local hooligans having fun. Love to watch these guys and wish I had the money and talent to run with them!
Canon S2IS in crappy fading light, long zoom and too much speed! MD state fair grounds in Timonium. The indoor short track guys are pretty crazy as well. They run those in the dead of winter.




Can you say HORSEPOWER!!!

If you can, get the January 1976 issue of Cycle World where D. Randy Riggs not only writes an article on how the bike came to being, but also how the AMA screwed the pooch by banning it and then he test rides Steve Baker's TZ. For those that might wonder, Steve Baker won the FIM World 750 GP class around that time, so his motor was no slouch. Roberts just favored smaller motors in most all racing, including a reduction from the 750 GP class in the AMA to a 500 class. Never happened though, Superbikes came in instead.
