Haha. I've misplaced my keys a lot and I'm not sure where my wife is and most of my tools are dupes, but I'm absolutely almost certainly sure that I know where that title is... I'm sure...well, marginally sure. Aww damn, and I was so comfortable in my easy chair...

Minimoto racing around a little road course in a warehouse has got to be one of the most enjoyable things to do on two wheels for giggles. Plus it's amazing the amount of bike control that you can learn going balls out on kids bikes on a fairly slick painted concrete surface. Loosing front end,sliding the back all over the place, hard on the brakes, chosesing the right lines, to the limit lean angles, it's all there on tiny little bikes. Make a mistake? No big deal you don't fall very far.

I am totally hooked after one 4 hour session. Unfortunately this is the last weekend that it's going on at this location. They have plans to open a bigger and better one in the Woodstoock/Winchester area.

Allsports in the Dulles area puts on a mini moto event once a month that is very popular. I really want to go do this anywhere any chance I get so let me know if there are other spots. I may now be in the market for a kids playbike.

Hardy had a tricked out XR100 that he had never ridden on a track like this and the thing was a beast. I had fun on the rental TTR125 a TTR90 and the little XR50's I even squeezed myself onto for many fun laps. I found I liked the 90 the best on this tight track. Full grown men on XR50's is a pretty nutty sight to behold. Seeing the little kids rip around was pretty cool to. The owners 5 year old son had the back wheel of his PW50 sliding all over the place with total control.

I'm going back out there tomorrow in the afternoon for a few hours. My 2 neighbors wanna go to, we're gonna have a blast. Hours are 9-5
2454 North East hwy. It's a blue factory building on right going north on 340,go to the back. Tomorrow is the last chance to try it right here in Elkton. I wore jeans, hiking boots,helmet,pressure suit,knee pads, gloves and spilled out numerous times and was just fine.

Pretty much. This time there were a lot of zombie decapitations along with Sarah Palin and Lady Gaga getting disembowled, so it was mostly red, with some spatterings of green bodily fluids around the lower half.

Last time I saw them, I caught the full blast of the singer's ejaculation, so ended up with a mostly green t-shirt and face, brown in the middle, and red at the bottom.

The singer mentioned that their show got shut down recently in Georgia during the disembowling of Palin. Apparently people thought it was politically incorrect to disembowl her, and complained they should have killed Obama instead....because that's much more politically correct. The singer then pointed out that in the last tour they'd decapitated Obama at the same venue to many cheers, but they shut down the show anyway.

They've been doing this constantly for 26 years now...you'd think people would know what to expect.

When I visited the track a few weeks ago the owner's dad said it cost them 4 grand a month to rent the warehouse.

I figured it would be a little cramped on the 50's. A 80 or 90 seemed ideal for an adult.

Wish I could make it today. bummer.

Okay. I'm at work. Drove here in my car. Bike has been stuck here for a week. I brought a power drill with me, and a screwdriver, and more WD-40. And riding gear. After work, I'm drilling the tank cap, filling up with gas, and riding home.

...Dammit! I left my wallet at home.

Thank God for Speedpass.
