I'll be there with Jetrep. Looking to have a repeat of the 1st race.....well, without the crashes and blistered hands.

Looks like there is still a flood warning for down there, should be interesting.

Ya'll are fun to mess with :D

I may have fabricated some of my posts for my own personal amusement.




Tires don't have air, cause I run foam inserts instead of tubes. WR450F will be getting the same when I get the spare dollars

Fed Ex air strip in Ohio, getting ready to break the standing mile record.

Warner Riley and George Smith, founder of S&S Cycles were the first to put Nitro-Methane in a motorcycle engine back in 68'

Well when you've had to do it 10x it goes pretty quick.

Unfortunately the part about the 290 cylinder being bad was true. I'm already missing the extra low end pop that gave, but at this point I'll take a solid machine over the extra power.

Sadly i think i need to rering the chinabike... Good news is a new piston and rings is only $20....tried to start it, got spark and fuel, and a good bit of blowby out the crankcase... May be just stuck rings but i doubt it, also the intake valve was waaaaayyyyyyy out of spec.... Took a full turn out on the rocker stud to get to spec....got a feeling it never dropped spark...gonna tear into the head tomorrow and see whats up inside....

I noticed that, too. I'm not sure Jerry would own a Nazi bike.

Yeah, I'm sure. No Starbucks within a few miles of that building.

I rode the course a little while ago. I just don't know if it was the GP course for tomorrow or the HS course for Sunday. The laid it out this afternoon. Not too snoty but they are calling for spotty showers the next two days.
I am trying to encourage my 7year old to race the kids 50 class Sunday. Hopefully he does it! Today was his first day in the woods and I was proud of how he did. The two times he fell I heard DAAAAADDDD! Good vocal cords for a seven year old yelling over a 250EXC and a 50 SX Pro.
